Inspiration surrounds us.

Inspired Places celebrates travel—our local and global connections, history and individual cultures, and innovations. Understanding places and all people promotes a common sense of belonging to our global community. Appreciation for uniqueness aids in cooperation toward the greater good, and ultimately, peace.

Our global society increases the importance, not only of tolerance, but of increased knowledge about our neighbors. Ultimately, a celebration of our differences uncovers our similarities.

As we drive toward the future, advances in technology must be balanced with an appreciation for the past and nature. Creativity that combines wisdom with innovation promotes enduring communities and a healthy, happy planet.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

Mark Twain
