Since I have been a tourism proficiando for most of my life I thought it important to capture this quote that justifies my perspectives about how tourism can lead to world peace, as highlighted by the Tourism and Peace conference and initiatives.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”

Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
