Family Travel Photo - Poland

April 13, 2010


One of the great values of family travel is how it keeps you connected to all the people and places that you visit. One becomes a citizen of the world and you feel related to everyone. When an earthquake hit Haiti, I thought of my visit there long ago and the people that touched me. When one hit Chile, I thought of all of our friends in South America and when I visited that continent long ago. When protests caused deaths in Thailand, we thought of our friends there and our plans to visit there later this year. 

We feel their pain more deeply now that the whole world belongs to us. Travel and the internet makes the world smaller today. This is a good thing and we can help each other and lift higher together.

This week our hearts are with our friends mourning in Poland and we send them our prayers. We remember happier times, like this fun photo taken at the Dumpling Festival ( pierogi) in Krakow that was populated primarily by locals. We hope the healing comes quickly, thoroughly and more happy days arrive soon. This is our small tribute to the strength, perseverance and joy of the Polish people. Always keep your eyes on the good!

"I have a sweet tooth for song and music. This is my Polish sin." Pope John Paul II

Thanks for this post. Traveling and meeting people from these different places really does give us an empathy for people of the world that we might not get from being in our own country surrounded by people just like us.

There is so much going on in the world right now. If you are a traveler of any sort, I think it's impossible not to have a friend somewhere who is in your thoughts.

Nice post.


Jo- That is so true! I think it is one of the great advantages of travel.

Nancie- Yes, you are right! In good times we get to celebrate the wins, but in sad times we must share the pain.

Seems to be a very interesting place to visit. I've never been into Poland. I'd like to experience their culture. :)
