Travel opens minds, and builds a platform upon which the fertile intellect of a young person can structure, and prosper.

Travel embeds culture and the manner of man's development into the soul of the traveler. We witnesses new things, sights, and pleasures. We expose our hearts to the vision and sounds of new beliefs, life styles, and eons of history.

Travels welcomes the traveler, to places and things, never seen before, foods, and dress, customs, and societal layers that illustrate the purpose of man's endeavor.

We travel to learn, and in some small way, be part of the greater fabric of humankind, irrespective of color or creed.

Our journeys impart in us the need to belong, and protect our world from harm, ensuring that the future generations after us, may enjoy what we have seen and learnt. 

The splendor of New York taught us all of this, the spirit of travel and enlightenment.
