How can you discover meaningful travel?

  • Park your fears and hang-ups, and engage with people of the world.
  • Make an effort to learn some words in a different language and communicate even when you make mistakes or think you look silly.
  • Laugh at yourself, try something new, make mistakes, even for things you previously took for granted.
  • See locals as world neighbors, not attractions.
