Opposing the U.S. Travel Ban

Traveling opens doors.
Traveling opens doors.

I proudly stand behind the Adventure Travel Trade Association’s statement on opposing the US Travel Ban, for it is via traveling and meeting with new cultures that barriers (and walls!) are broken down.

As the ATTA points out in their latest newsletter, “Travelers personally benefit from the expanded worldview and cultural experiences adventure travel offers. Many reported that “peace,” “freedom,” and a “broadened perspective” were important to them. This cultural understanding and exposure breeds tolerance, empathy, and understanding of others in the world. It is through travel that the ATTA believes people can move toward better cultural understanding and peace.”

AMEN!

Adventure on,
Kristen
