Fading Boundaries

Travel is to experience life in a brand new way, a journey of empathy and change that makes distant cultures become familiar. Faraway lands broaden our knowledge of humanity, showcasing their glorious past and their compelling present. It is to see a world with a different history, where people speak different languages, eat different foods, believe in different gods, and live different lives. This journey to faraway lands is an invitation to seize the present. That instant you witness the prayers of dozens of devotees in a Burmese pagoda and reflect on the liberating essence of merit for Buddhists. A precious moment with a Kenyan Maasai warrior teaching you a couple of words and laughing together as you try to polish your pronunciation. A walk on the cobbled streets of charming Cusco as you discover the secrets of herbal medicine in its traditional Inca markets. Pack your bags, and discover why traveling to new worlds is to reshape our hearts.
