Travel While You Are Young
While THIS ARTICLE is targeted to young adults, it does have some great reasons to travel while you are young which apply to the much younger crowd that we have.
I know that from my own personal travels, my children have met a wide range of people, are more polite and accepting of people that are different, hopefully are more worldly and intelligent (sometimes I wonder), and have a decided appreciation for what it is that we have here in the U.S.
When a teacher tries to prevent travel, I tend to dig in my heels and insist. My kids are all on their second set of passports-not because they expired, but because they were filled. Travel IS an education.
