I agree with Rick Steves . . . Leaving America has made me a better American.

Many Americans are afraid to leave the United States. Our media can make the world look like a really scary place, but I think there’s much more out there to love than there is to fear.

Whenever I visit another country, I get a look at the United States through a fresh lens. I find more to appreciate when I come back home.

You can learn more about the United States by leaving it. But don’t just take it from me. Rick Steves, perhaps the most famous American travel writer, explains it more beautifully.

Do you agree with Rick Steves? Has traveling ever felt like a political act to you? I want to know what you think . . . and don’t forget to “like” this post!

    I really like this video. Steves is so right, travel improves your view toward the world and makes you more sensitive towards it and the people who live in it.
