Great list and it’s useful to have these concepts to ground yourself after returning home to keep the best of your life on the road at home.

I would add keep your traveler’s eyes and curiosity on when you are at home. The observational skills and ability to question everything that travelers develop are great. Keep that up at home and you may discover quite a lot about your home that you didn’t realize and you may find connections with multi-ethnic communities that will help bring the world closer to you.

On our recent trip home, we loved discovering Asian and Latin American grocers and getting into conversations with them about where they were from and how things were going with their families. It helped us feel connected to the places we had been and it was nice for the people to talk with someone who understood a bit of where they had come from.
