Be a Traveler, not a Tourist…

It has been said that Travel means finding yourself through a journey and allowing that discovery to change you. Tourism is about making a journey with enough planning and cushioning and filtering so you “see the sights” without being transformed by them. Can you have both? Perhaps…. Only YOU can answer that question as you travel through your own life. Enjoy the journey!
