Everyday, all kinds of media bombard us with images and information. I read books and magazines for pleasure and to lessen my ignorance. I talk and listen to people and learn something along the way. There are TV programs that are informative and broaden the mind. But travel is the most enlightening and rewarding. It is a fascinating way to discover and know the world, yourself, and experience how others live. Travel dispels our fear of the unknown and teaches us new ways of seeing things.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetimes. ~ Mark Twain

lovely take on the theme
I love your take on this week's theme!
Zest Air! Traveling is like embarking in an adventure :)
Great take on the theme. So agree with you. OTOH, I can't help remembering the following saying:
"Travel broadens the mind... and loosens the bowels"! :D
@ YTSL, the saying cracked me up! that is so true! *LOL* so don't forget travel insurance.:p
different but great. like the information.
I couldn't agree more - nothing opens the mind more than travel! Well played, well played!
Twain is spot on. Great take on the theme!
Love the photo and your take on the theme.
Have a fabulous weekend!

Great Mark Twain quote!
Great photo for the theme. I agree with you. I also love travelling and what I like most is I learn at my own pace.
couldn't afford to travel distances yet...but, through reading...it takes me to places i can never imagine. Ignorance, yup...but sometimes, reading and "knowing" gives other people the creeps out of me..i'm always "MISINTERPRETED", as "always on the "opposing team".
