A map of London's underground railway reminds me of the travel opportunities I have had over the past year, which included taking several modes of public transportation. My husband and I traveled to Maine twice and visited the Boston area. I am certainly not keen on taking public transportation, but my husband always seeks out new ways to challenge me. Traveling both near and far this year has taught me that it is valuable to have experiences outside of where you live. Salina, Kansas is just a small bubble in the world, and there is so much to see, do, and experience. If we do not take the opportunity to travel when presented to us, we will continue to have a limited perspective of events happening in our world.
