I saw a FB quote the other day which sums it all up pretty nicely to from a political point of view, saying: "Fascism is cured by reading and racism by travelling" (Miguel De Unamuno).
I want to meet my fellow human beings and experience the beauty of the world, and also see the more 'dangerous' places where the media try and brainwash us into not visiting. Such places as, in my experience, Colombia in the early 90's (when Pablo Escobar was still the Emperor) and Palestine in the mid 90's.
When you go there you realise that the fear mongering is usually unfounded.
