Travel Guide: The World is a Small Place

Sometimes you don’t need a plane ticket to learn about a new culture. I came across this video a few weeks back that captures why I think travel is so important: students from the U.S. are given the opportunity to connect via skype with students from Europe, Africa and Asia, and connection is precisely what happens.

After finding common ground in music and crushes, racism and daily obstacles, do you think these kids will grow up espousing an “us versus them” mentality? Of course not, because now they know someone who is not like them, and have discovered that they’re more alike than they thought. Take a few minutes to watch the videoโ€”it will totally make your Friday!
