September 27th is World Tourism Day.
This day has been celebrated annually by the United Nations World Tourism Organization since 1980. It recognizes the social, cultural, economic and political value of tourism. Any enthusiastic traveller has known this all along and likely celebrates this fact several days of the year! Here are just a few ways travel benefits me personally. It:
- helps restore my faith in humanity.
- gives me a sense of accomplishment.
- instills a sense of self-worth and belief in myself and abilities.
- brings me joy.
- expands my awareness, opens my mind and challenges my perceptions.
I did something special today to recognize World Tourism Day.
How about you?
Staying put I survive
but travelling I thrive
