I certainly wish that everyone had a chance to travel. It has been said that you have not lived, until you have traveled.
Many people are blessed to visit new places, meet new people and try new experiences, but some are not.
For those who have not traveled, I urge you to make it a goal to leave what you are used to and visit at least one new place.
You will find that traveling opens your eyes to ingenuity and to so much more elsewhere.
Take for instance the attached photo. You may not see a “taxi” sign, but would you believe that this is a taxi in St. Thomas? Do you also notice that it is a Chevy pickup truck? It certainly is. We use those trucks in the United States to move loads. However in St. Thomas, and on other islands, they convert those trucks and similar ones such as Ford 250’s into taxis which can carry several people at once.
I also recall visiting Samana, Dominican Republic and rode in a taxi comprised of seats and a covering attached to a motorbike. Picture a motorbike that carries two people, having seats and a covering for 4 or more people.
Traveling helps us to see new ways of doing things and meeting people, who while similar to us in many ways, are geniuses in their own rights.
Plan to travel. Plan to see outside your world.
