"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. "
- Mark Twain

If there's one thing I'm grateful for inheriting from my parents (apart from being short, excessively hairy, and prone to acne) it is a love for traveling. My parents would take my sister and I to places like Japan, England, and Pakistan when we were only a few months old. And even though we are 18 and 21 years-old, my father still tries to pass my sister and I off as 5 and 7, having gotten used to boarding early with the other families that had small children. Let me tell you, it feels great boarding a plane with kids who can barely walk. Not embarrassing at all.

If I could travel anywhere in the world, here's where I'd like to be right now...

Anywhere in Africa, looking out for a Baobab Tree.

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Pretending I'm in the clouds on the largest salt flat in the world.

Potala Palace, Lhasa, Tibet
Conquering my fear of heights at what used to be the home of the Dalai Lama.

Portofino, Italy
Soaking in the color on the Italian Riviera.

And if that hasn't made you want to pack up and pay $15 to check in your bags, watch this video.
