Private Travel: Another Educational Opportunity

In my professional contexts with students, faculty, and other colleagues, I regularly draw from my private travel experiences, introducing and encouraging new perspectives and new ways of thinking and viewing global issues. Most recently, I have visited the following countries: Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Nederlands, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and my native Finland.
