"I worked for environmental health for 35 years. When I started out I was inspecting things. You learn to look. Being a visual person relates to the way I travel. It's interesting to see how people do things differently and why they do them."- Dick Pantages, '64
"Travel is transformative for me. You really have an opportunity to come together as a group—not just the people in the community you are with, but your friends and family members."- Cindy Hunter Lang, '83
"One of the problems of growing old is that you have to keep busy. If you don't keep busy you sit in front of the television all day and just germinate. That's no good. Traveling keeps you alive!"- Paul Jones, PhD '71
"I've always been interested in learning, and I've never wanted to stop learning."- Kathy Borrero Bloch, JD '81
"I just think curiosity is one of the best things to have in your bag of tricks."- Margaret Anne Cullum, '62
"I grew up high in the Karakorum Mountains. My father enjoyed being in different countries and finding out about the culture of the country. What he discovered and I discovered is that all of us are very much the same."- Lynn Mumby, '75
