In all of my travels abroad, I have never met an alien being. Instead, I found people everywhere who shared the same basic fears and worries: finding love, making a living, raising responsible and good people, and having more good days than bad ones. Travel reinforces the fact that people are more alike than they are different.

Often when I tell people of my love to travel, they ask me if I am not afraid of people who are “different.” But, that is the beauty of visiting other places: you recognize our common humanity when you sit and talk with someone in a foreign country, often through gestures, and realize that you are often looking at yourself. A smile is the same no matter where you go, and it will do more to stop wars than all the weapons in the world. Happy travels!
I wanted to join the Nurturing Thursday Challenge by Becca Givens from On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea, January 24, 2019: People. I added pictures from Alicante, Spain, to emphasize the messages.
