This story really resonates with my ‘learning by travelling’ experiences as well. It is only when we leave our own culture to join others that we can come back to our own with fresh eyes to make improvements. London, the capital that so many people are dying to live in is where so many people sit silently, disconnected and glum on the train. It would be naive to think that rural tribes everywhere live happy care-free lives, but laughter and human connections are so important for wellbeing…this is sadly too often overlooked in modern Western society.
Thanks for a great read!
