This review is from: Crossroads: Becoming a Geographer, Ten Joyful Travel Tips That Will Change The Way You See Your World (Paperback)
I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you love to travel or have never traveled in your life, whether you are traveling internationally or within your own country, whether you are soon to be traveling or recently returned, whether you work with international programs or not; ultimately, if you are mindful (or want to learn how to be mindful) of the world we live in and the people around you, Crossroads will indeed change the way you see your world. Read this book and learn how to travel in a meaningful way, learn how to thoughtfully immerse yourself in the experience, and begin to not simply open your eyes to different ways of life, but to appreciate and understand other places and people.

This book was written in celebration of the fact that we learn best by doing, by walking through histories and reaching out across cultures and tasting and smelling and listening to that richly cacophonous collage that is the world. Don, a geographer not only by trade but by calling, offers this book as an entryway to a certain kind of learning. It is an invitation to take his earned experience and apply its wisdom to your own inevitably formative travels. It is an invitation to open yourself to the expansiveness of every day–conveyed through the lens of a learned professional but enjoyed like a warm cup of tea on a morning filled with promise. By pairing anecdotes with geographic jargon and advice with personal photographs, this work becomes less a textbook and more a companion, opening the door to an education that will endure a lifetime.
