Travelling at home – reprise

Filed under: Uncategorized — podtourz @ 7:10 pm

A lovely post on Brave New Traveler encapsulates some of the themes of ‘travelling in your own back yard’.

I really like what this writer is saying – that we are all, potentially, immigrants, refugees, displaced persons. The more privileged of  us are displaced through choice, not circumstances – but we can develop our empathy with others through our experience of travel.
