Travel is the perfect catalyst for happiness, allowing us to experience the natural, cultural and man-made wonders of the world. Being in foreign lands continuously forces us to step out of our comfort zones and challenge our preconceived ideas about the world, others and ourselves. As a follow up to Thanksgiving celebrations, we want to reflect back on travel experiences that we appreciate. The good, the bad and the life changing!

This week we want to hear how travel has expanded your capacity for wonder, joy and appreciation! Join us, @andrewtkearns@travelseewrite, @itsellephoto, @anne_elizabeth & the Passion Passport community on the 30th of November from 2-3pm EST to Appreciate Travel.
