Travel As A Political Act


Rick Steves’s recent book, Travel As A Political Act tells us how we can travel more thoughtfully.

“Growing up in the U.S., I was told over and over how smart, generous, and free we were. Travel has taught me that the vast majority of humanity is raised with a different view of America. Travelers have a priceless opportunity to see our country through the eyes of other people.”

More on how travel writing, itself is a political act at World Hum and Democracy Cell Project.
