Even if you don't actually get out there and travel you can still visit places far and near from the comfort of your armchair. Many of the resources on this page will help you to do that. I have personally looked them over and consider them important enough to be included here.
Once upon a time I was a world traveler. I've lived in 16 different places all told, more if you count moves within cities, but who wants to get picky? Born in Ft. Lewis, Washington, a few months in Oregon, 3 years in Alaska, a year or so in Ft. Benning, Georgia, a year or so in Lubbock, Texas. Then, two years in Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. Three years in Oslo, Norway. A year or so at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. On to Salina, Kansas. By then I was a fresh man in highschool. A couple of years in Hagerstown, Maryland. A couple of years in Fairfax, Virginia. Seven years split between Munich and Stuttgart, Germany. Two years Hyattsville, Maryland. Two years in Coronado, California and the rest of it in Oakland, California where we've been since 1983.
Now? I don't like to move. But, I still like to see what life is like for other people. I actually don't like to visit places, but would rather settle in and live there for awhile. One thing that all that moving around taught me was to value the freedom I have as an American citizen. Sometimes I think people sort of take that for granted. I remember in Germany a van periodically making the rounds of our neighborhood with a satellite dish on top of it. The purpose was to see who was lying on their documents about how many televisions they had in their house. Because they were taxed on them. I don't know if things have changed since then. I would hope they might have. But, something like that would be absolutely inconceivable to an American citizen. So, traveling is something that makes you appreciate what you've got.
Don't get me wrong. I loved living in Germany. I'd go back in a heartbeat if things were different. The pace of life there was much slower than it is in the US. I felt a lot safer there. God, but the food was good. And, the beer. I don't drink anymore, but I sure remember the beer tasted good. The people were friendlier than those I run into nowadays. Things were just different. When we got back to the US after having lived in Germany for 7 straight years I went through a solid year of culture shock. I miss Germany, but I'm also glad to be home.
