Just Because You're Broke Doesn't Mean You Can't See the World

BlogHer Spotlight

I had lunch today with an old friend. She was asking me if I'd ever visited ruins in Mexico. I told her I'd only been out of the country twice -- a band trip in high school to Canada and a personal trip to Australia in my early twenties. She was sort of blown away, because I like new things. I said, "Thank God for books." I think Melody has a spot-on idea. Not everyone can afford travel, but everyone can try new things.

Melody writes:

Though our outing was brief, and was a mere glimpse into the Persian food experience, I'm really glad we went. Trips like these give my senses a little jolt, and I cherish the new sights, sounds, tastes, and smells.
