That is a delightful quote, it certainly resonates with me. How can we consider ourselves knowledgeable if we do not explore and experience other countries and cultures?
Totally agree. It’s so easy to become insular in one’s views and thinking patterns!

This is so, so true!
I am loving your travel quotes!
