World travel can be an exciting way to learn about other cultures and traditions. It can also be expensive, time consuming and disruptive to your daily life. You do not have to hop on a plane, train or boat to get to know the world. Thanks to modern technology and the wonders of the Internet, there is a lot you can do from your own home to help you feel like you are a world traveler. Travel around the world without leaving home by taking advantage of print and digital media, exploring world cultures with food and folklore and getting to know the ethnic neighborhoods in your own community.
