“When Travel Is a Family Affair”
by Linda Vallejo
When I was a young girl, my family traveled in planes, cars and trains to wonderful places all over the world. We always packed our bags carefully and dressed in our best clothes. Our parents taught us to be friendly and polite so we made new friends everywhere we went. We visited the wonders of the world and learned a lot about history, culture, art and architecture. As a young girl, I went to school with children of all races and nationalities, and as a young woman, I learned to speak Spanish in Spain. Traveling taught me to appreciate our special differences and to understand that each one of us has something special to offer the world. Traveling to new places and meeting new people is a fun way to learn. I will always have very fond memories of traveling with my family!
