peace- Be open to new experiences but take calculated risks – live to play another day

- Travel quickly through expensive countries and slowly through less expensive countries

- Stray often from the beaten path. Be travelers, not tourists. Seek out authentic experiences.

- Make friends of both locals and fellow travelers

- Don’t exhaust yourselves – take a break and spend a week on a beach doing nothing when feeling fatigued

- Lose weight (for Mustafa)

- Take lots of photographs

- Look for business opportunities (an unidentified or ill-served market with unmet demand that we have the skills, knowledge and network to satisfy profitably)

- Appreciate the breathtaking diversity of our glorious planet, be it natural, cultural, philosophical, artistic or other

- Become a better writer
