September 27th is World Tourism Day, an occasion marked by the United Nations World Tourism Organization to “foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.” While it’s certainly an ideal reason to satiate your unending wanderlust by dreaming of far off places and pinning photos for your future travel bucketlist, it’s also a day to contemplate the significance of travel, why we (as insatiable wanderers) devote our lives to it, and its impact on our global community.
