I want to keep learning; that's why I travel.
To see beautiful places, new ways of life,
different traditions. It changes you.
In the beginning, we'd lug two
huge checked bags, two of the biggest carry-ons, a camera bag, and
anything else we could bring. Now
we've got it down: Our two new
Briggs & Riley carry-ons fit everything we need for a month.
Travel gives you instant perspective. You go to Cambodia and meet

In July, we're traveling with Michael
and his family. We'll cruise with
