I know this is going to sound crazy to some of you, but I have always budgeted for family vacations and considered it to be an education expense.
I’ve talked to thousands of people about travel over the course of my 13 years as a travel professional (and 30 years traveling the world) and one thing is clear, people who have traveled have a more open-minded, optimistic opinion of our world.
They’ve been places, they’ve experienced other lifestyles and cultures, and they’ve learned that people around the world are basically the same. We all love our children, we value safety and security. We laugh, we cry and we are amazed at the great wonders of the world. We all want the world to be a better place.
