Travel and Genius

Travel and genius.

“Creative geniuses are often marginal people; individuals whose vision was greatly expanded because they were forced to move from one cultural world into another, and thus were able to see the relativity of both.”  Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, The Evolving Self, Harper Collins, 1993, page 74.

He goes on to support this statement by illustrating how people like Freud, Einstein, Picasso, and Gandhi all lived in multiple places with a variety of cultures.  The message?  Get out and experience other cultures!  As soon as this quarantine lifts, let’s book a trip!  Feed your inner creative genius.

Full disclosure:  I also own a travel agency and I’m a Certified Cruise Counselor, so I can help you book that trip! Send an email to david.veech@clandestinetravel.com.
