Have Dreams, Will Travel
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams."
Henry David Thoreau passed away before the first commercial airplane took flight, but his words have never rung truer. Today, a New Orleans flatlander can hop on a plane in order to climb a 14,000-foot mountain in Denver, and a California native can fly more than 2,500 miles to Washington, DC, to fight for the rights of foster children. These 10 stories show how travel can make dreams come true. If only Thoreau had the chance to fly across the country-who knows where he would have gone.
