Jan 9th 2013 9:22AM What an extraordinary video - and Laurel, I can't wait to read your book. What a unique vantage point your book will have.
Jul 11th 2012 10:24PM Really interesting - I've always wondered. It seems like SUCH a waste, doesn't it?
Aug 15th 2010 12:05PM i am loving these debates, because it brings up an important point - that everyone has their own motives, and reasons, for travel OR staying home. not everyone wants to travel - most people in my neighborhood do NOT want to travel at all. but we do love to travel, and try to work it out with our business (a travel site, WanderingEducators) and my disabilities.
it's all about intercultural understanding, and personal understanding. where you are, when you learn about others and yourself, is YOUR choice.

Jul 17th 2009 4:47PM what a great article! it is so important to understand how and why people act they way they do - intercultural communication is a WONDERFUL thing. thanks!
Dec 4th 2008 7:05PM having worked in the study abroad field, i'd say that it is numbers. and having seen firsthand how (and on what) men and women spend their money overseas, i think the frugal thing needs to be chucked out the window.
we take our daughter everywhere - it is more fun to travel with her than before we had her! i feel sorry for people that think that life (and travel) ends when you have kids.
great topic for conversation!
