Not all who Wander are Lost
By Brenna Smith’15,
The act of traveling forces a person to break out of her comfort zone and challenges her to grow accustomed to changing atmospheres quickly. Traveling is a wonderful opportunity for a person to learn about different cultures and people, including those oh-so-distant Sacromentoions.
If further convincing is needed, English 103H’s own Mr. Isham weighs in on the subject: “Travel teaches us independence because it allows us to escape the familiar surroundings of home and forces us into strange places and often challenging circumstances. We learn a lot about history and our world--but we also learn a lot about ourselves. We are taught to appreciate what we enjoy here at home, what we often take for granted.”
Several of Mr.Isham’s students that partook in his awesome Europe trip this past summer concur. “Going on Mr.Isham’s trip really helped me learn more not only about other cultures, but also about myself.” Maddy McNamara’15 confides. “Yeah, it really opened up the opportunity for me to look at things in a new perspective.” Sarah O’Halloran’16 agrees.
So while weeping the end of summer, stop and smile because next summer you can embark on an adventure of your own.
