Most geographers have more than a little bit of wanderlust.  Maybe we don’t all have the pocketbook for it, but so many people have the desire to explore, travel and see parts of the world that feel as if they are mythical.  For students that have the curiosity, it our mission as educators to cultivate that and help them frame the world into a geographic perspective.  I’ve always felt that window-seat flyers are have the seed of a geographer embedded within them…let’s make sure those seeds can grow.
