I couldn’t disagree more. What a self important piece of poop. The Author makes the “incredible” claim that traveling doesn’t “guarantee” you’ll be more worldly. Nope, point well made, just like standing in the middle of a road doesn’t guarantee you’ll be hit by a car, but it sure as hell increases your chances. Likewise traveling increases the likelihood that you’ll understand other cultures, and regardless of someones background it’s also likely to encourage problem solving, people skills and independence, three attributes that will stand anyone in good stead in future life.
Regardless of your current income or background traveling will most likely help you. Yes, you’re 100% right, life’s not a level playing field. But assuming that people should not travel, or for that mater study because it’s easier for them than others is ridiculous.
I’m guessing Chelsea has an annoying trust fund friend that’s posting too many selfies and positive affirmations but it’s a pretty long bow to draw that deprioritizing traditional education for traveling is “the worst advice of all time”.
