As most of you know, we spent most of the time between 2003 and 2009 exploring the world.
We’ve got our own list of lessons learned from those travels here: http://www.hackneys.com/travel/index-lessons-byarea.htm
Gary Arndt, who spent the last three years doing the same, was recently interviewed by Tim Ferriss and gave his 20 lessons learned here: http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2010/10/30/20-things-ive-learned-from-traveling-around-the-world-for-three-years/
I echo every one of Gary’s lessons learned.
I also encourage everyone to get out into the world so they can see these realities for themselves.
