Via the Visitor

Even if I have not visited your country, or your local region, what are the best things to see and do there? What makes your homeland unique?  How do you usually behave towards guests?

Do you live in your homeland or have you moved somewhere else? Have you ever truly known a place as home?

Have I been anywhere (countries indicated in red) near to where you live?

What does "home" mean to you? Do you travel because you are in search of a new home?

How much of the world have you truly explored? Passing through airports does not count. Nor does spending most of the time sitting in a conference hall or lounging around in a resort or on a beach!

How much of the world do you understand? What does it mean to understand the world?

If you live in the United States, how much of the country have you visited? How many generations of your family have lived there?  Have you been to where your family originated?

What are the similarities and differences between India, Australia and the United States? I have only visited parts of the north of India. How about you?

Have you been to India? Do you live there? What can India teach the world about continual journeys?

Have you been to Australia? Have you been to England? Do you struggle with the English language? Why is English such a useful language for travellers?

How to travel without leaving home

Do you enjoy looking at photographs online, or going on an adventure with Google maps? Have you travelled through time, too? Have you tried my history blog?

Understanding the World

Do you travel because you wish to overcome your misconceptions of other peoples and other places?

What would be your thoughts about the picture below if you had no other information with which to understand its meaning accurately?

What would you think if I told you that the person in this picture is me?
