I love to travel

I cannot remember anyone who traveled very widely other than to visit family and certainly I did not know anyone who traveled to outside the continental US for pleasure (except Tijuana since it was close to Los Angeles) until I got to college.  It was then that I met people whose families had the means and interest to visit other countries.  It was just such an amazing thing to me.  Well as I got older and the means became available I have tried to really get to see other parts of the world.  I think it is so wonderful that many young people are traveling.  It really gives them a perspective on the world that I did not have at their age.  I love to watch travel programs on TV and read the travel section of newspapers.  The internet also brings the world to me.  I can only remember National Geographic and my stamp collection as a way to connect with other countries and cultures.
