People who travel broadly do it for a variety of reasons. Personally I love to experience life and culture outside the realm to which I’ve become accustomed.
And in the process, I am often inspired to look at an incident and see it in a wider global context, to put some normal life occurrence into a broader perspective. Once in a while, poetry even gets written.
