Travel

Extensive travel is one of Eric's trademarks. His recreational camping trips took him through all 48 states of the lower U.S. Internationally, Eric has spent time in approximately one half of the countries in the world, literally from A to Z  - Armenia to Zimbabwe -  about 100 total. His work currently centers on strategic parts of the world: predominantly the Indian subcontinent, Africa and China. Occasionally his blog entries describe a trip. He finds cross-cultural experiences both enlightening and enriching. He points out that 95% of the people in the world do not live in the United States. There is much to see and know from roaming with a purpose. As he puts it,

We learn from first-hand experiences. And what we learn is far more than geography or culture. People in different settings have much to teach Americans about life that we might not otherwise notice.
