Rick Steve’s View on Travel

There’s a saying that goes “travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”. I feel that this ties right into what Rick Steves is talking about in this TEDx video. He speaks about how the best souvenir to get from travel is the understanding that “we are all very different, but fundamentally the same”.

Rick Steve’s Must Watch TEDx

Travel provides more than instagrammable photographs of sunsets and iconic monuments, or even dare I say, tasting the foods of the world (although this is definitely one of my personal favourite things about travel). It allows the opportunity to learn from someone you might never have a conversation with. Perhaps the best quote from his video is “travels wallops my ethnicentricity”. Don’t take it from me though, hear it from the man himself.
