Wednesday’s Wondrous World: Travel

Columns, Wednesday’s Wondrous World

As small as our world is, it is also vast and full of incredible wonders.

From Asia to Australia, North America to Europe, Africa to Antarctica, and across South America, there are an amazing, vast number of wonders to seek and behold.

Some people have more freedom to travel than others.  Money, time, and obligations can have a pretty wide-ranging effect on travel.  But when a way can be found, there are amazing things to discover and see all across this world.

Travel can take any number of forms, too.  Different modes of transportation can provide different aspects to the travel adventure.  The fastest way between point ‘a’ and point ‘b’ is the plane or high-speed rail.  A train or bus trek can offer a longer, possibly more detailed perspective while getting from these opposing points.  A cruise can be a travel all its own.

I have been fortunate to see pretty much every part of the United States.  I have driven more or less from one side of the country to the other, and visited 43 of 50 states.  But my only travel outside of the states has been Canada and Mexico.  I have not had the pleasure of seeing the world across either ocean.

I want to travel and see Europe.  I want to visit England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and all of Great Britain.  I want to see the Gothic cathedrals of France I studied in college for myself.  And I want to cross the Pacific and visit Australia and Japan.  I want to travel and visit many other parts of the world.

I am grateful for all the travel I have undertaken thus far, and am excited to see what the future might hold.  But all the options of our modern world make travel more accessible, more available, and bring the world closer together.
