Introduction

I love to travel and have been doing so since I first stepped foot on Eastern Air Lines in 1976 to visit my mother in New York City. I was so excited because the captain gave me wings, the same he had on his white shirt! I felt like I was a pilot, too. We may not get to see the intricate cockpit of a commercial plane these days, but visiting other cultures is still exhilarating. For some, however, the prospect is intimidating with its unfamiliarity. Extreme security inspections, long flights in cramped spaces, limitless spending—overburdened credit cards, and "I need a passport, too!"

I aim to inspire more people to travel, fostering the belief that harmony is achievable by embracing our cultural uniqueness and recognizing our shared humanity.
