    Hi Renuka

    It would be interesting to hear from you what you think children can learn from travel. You mention that travelling has taught you some important lessons, can we teach our children anything through travelling? For my part, I think the biggest thing that travelling teaches children is to, as you rightly mention, accept other cultures and lifestyles as equally valid and important as our own and to open their minds to differences. It does not even have to be a foreign country – just going to a different state within India can help break stereotypes and teach children to appreciate and celebrate differences.
