St. Augustine once wrote that “the world is a book and those who do not travel only read one page.”
I was never much of a tourist. I preferred to get out of the hotel and see the world by spending time with the people who lived there. I remember telling my mother that I wanted to travel to all the continents and see the seven wonders of the world. Money nor borders ever once crossed my mind. Curiosity about what lay beyond my driveway inspired me to read about everywhere and strive to know everything. Like most families that travel with kids we stayed state side. But, that was fine with me. The more I saw the more I yearned to know more.
