Drink in each destination, one sip at a time.
In our nearly 23 years of marriage, Jenny and I have led more than 15 overseas student trips. Although most often to Italy and Greece, we've also led trips to Romania, Haiti, and Spain. We both studied abroad while at Baylor and we were engaged on the island of Capri. We enjoy finding quirky overseas holes-in-the-wall, especially when those places have fresh food or fresh coffee.
Perspicacity: a clarity of vision, an ability to recognize subtle differences and synthesize observations and develop and test working hypotheses.
My goal for students (including adults) who travel with Destination: World is for them to learn how to travel slowly and purposefully. The ancients called this mindset: "Festina lente." Hurry up slowly.
Unless students see beauty for what it is, perspicacity alone will not benefit the traveler.
"Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up holding wonder like a cup." - Sara Teasdale in Barter
