By far, travel is o­ne the greatest forms of education. It's enlightening, it's hands-on, and the actual experience itself leaves vivid impressions in our memory bank. Sometimes visiting a neighboring city or State might be just what we need to get back o­n pace and refreshed from our busy schedules. For others, the requirement might be a bit higher. More diverse exposure is necessary. Here, I'm talking about going abroad and visiting a different country. Before I go any further, let me introduce myself and tell you about WEB International--Notes from Abroad.
