An incredibly rich conversation about how travel transforms your character. Mary interviews Chelsea Glass, owner of Heart of Travel, an organization that helps you learn about Latin American culture through Spanish classes and small group trips.
You will learn about…
- how to travel ethically and truly support the country you’re visiting
- the hardships of interracial and intercultural relationships
- how to find your “home,” whether it’s the place you were born or somewhere abroad
Remember: travel can teach us so much about ourselves and the world around us. If done intentionally, travel transforms you.
