I gotta admit Tom Kuegler , I cringed at your reference at being a homeless person. As a volunteer for the homeless for years I found this slightly distasteful.
But.. I will say, you’re kinda right about traveling not really changing you, depending on where you’re traveling to that is. As someone who gave up her entire first world life in Canada to Central America to volunteer, that shit will change you.
If people want to travel for life changing experiences they should check out third world countries. You will never be the same. I promise you that. You become a better person.
On another note, I also had a helluva time learning how to drive scooters. I got it now! 😉
