Summer 2018

“Let’s get away from it all,” as the old song says. For sure, sometimes we just need a break from our many responsibilities. So we hit the road, take a flight, sail the ocean. But travel can be about much more than seeing sites and taking pictures to post on Instagram. If we’re willing to explore, to break out of our comfort zones, travel is a chance to step in the footsteps of others. It’s a chance to meet new people and experience different cultures, to learn and understand. And in the process, we gain fresh perspectives and personal insights that can inform how we go about our lives and careers.
