The Art of Traveling
The information below was included in the travel materials from Select International for our Canonization Pilgrimage that begins today. I’m borrowing EVERY word at this stage . . .
What if the words “travel” and “traveler” were changed to “learn” and “learners”?
“Travel Lightly – Don’t let too much “stuff” weigh you down. Keep your clothing and your baggage simple.
Travel Expectantly – Expect to be surprised and changed by your experiences together.
Travel Humbly – Visit the people of this land with reverence and respect for their traditions and way of life.
Travel Gratefully – Realize you are guests in this land and display gratitude for the people who are welcoming us and providing for you.
Travel Courteously – Show consideration for fellow travelers and help each other smooth the way through any difficulties you may encounter.
Travel Patiently – Stay flexible and adaptable and realize that unexpected changes, delays, and problems are part of the whole experience.
Travel Relaxed – Let go of worries and tensions and decide to have a good time!”
Does this resemble your plan for your classroom this year?
Where will you need to be cautious and/or planful? Humble? Patient?
