Sep 26th 2012 7:24AM The more I travel, the more I realise how alike we all are despite the "differences".
Most people want a decent life - enough to eat, shelter, security arising from the rule of law, decent health (and access to decent health care - something still lacking in many first world countries) and access to education so that their kids have the opportunity for a better life than them.
It's often only the "politcal" rhetoric from "leaders", dictators and various nutters that stops us from realising how alike we really are.
If you haven't travelled, get a passport and get the hell out there into this wonderful, exciting world we share and experience it - we are waiting on passports for two of our kids, and we are heading to Europe for three weeks to help them start their journey.
We feel very lucky to be able to do this, but have also made a conscious decision to spend money on something that is REALLY important.
