Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime
— Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
Welcome to the Traveling Page of my blog!
The goal of this page is to show other individuals/students that traveling abroad is a useful and fruitful experience not only for getting to know other students from their own programs, but getting to know how other people live in the world and the history that drives a given culture.
My first experience traveling outside of North America was to Greece during my undergraduate at the College of Charleston. The Summer in Greece Program consisted of two courses, Classical Greece and Bronze Age Greece, taught by Dr. Frank Morris (Classics Department). While Dr. Morris has subsequently retired, the program is now run by Dr. Andrew Alwine. Dr. Alwine has made a few changes including changing out Bronze Age Greece with Greek Beliefs and Practices, but I’m sure the program is still as enjoyable now as it was when I took it.
