About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Short term: To convince people that Texas is a nice place to visit! Long term: “In our present state of affairs, the very survival of humankind depends on people developing concern for the whole of humanity, not just their own community or nation”

ABOUT ME

"The journey does not begin after the moment when we go on the road, and does not end when we reached the final destination. In fact, it starts much earlier and virtually never ends, because the tape in our memory is still turned on, even though we have not moved physically from the given spot for a long time. After all, there is such a thing as being infected with the travelling and the nature of this disease is essentially incurable. "/ R. Kapuscinski

PHILOSOPHY

The best way to prevent wars is to let people know each other

~ Robert Baden-Powell
