People from other countries often whine about the lack of international travel among citizens of this country. Although I agree that traveling might make us a little more understanding and tolerant as a culture, I can see the inner reasonings for this dearth of experience. Perhaps the number one reason is the country itself. I can hardly think of a more diverse natural landscape than the one that we live among here in the United States. We have snowy peaks, deserts, beaches, glaciers, volcanoes, grizzly bears, gila monsters, condors, dolphins, the tallest trees, the largest parks. Naturally, we may be the envy of the world. Socially and politically, that maybe a different story. I’m not saying don’t travel, I am saying get out there, go to these beautifully unique places we have in our own country, you have no excuse.
