Why does a traveler become a traveler? Why do you like to go out and explore the world, while other people you know – many of whom are just like you in many ways – are happy to return time and again to the same resort or stick close to home. A couple of weeks ago, I was interviewed by the San Diego Union-Tribune. In the process, the writer Lori Weisberg got me to thinking about some of the early influences that channeled me into Classic Journeys. (Thanks, Mom & Dad, for buying me that unlimited airline pass when I was 12!) The article’s here. Enjoy. And we’d love to hear from you about your own formative experiences that made you the traveler you are today.
