Today is the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, and in between bites of our traditional turkey, sweet potatoes/yams and pecan pie, I am most thankful for all of those around the world who welcome travelers, and make us feel at home in your home.

We may love to travel, but no one likes to feel displaced or lonely, so thank you to everyone who offers hospitality to tired folks lugging suitcases in strange lands. 

Hopefully we can someday reciprocate your warmth and welcome.
