New sights. New smells. New people. New places. Travel involves all this and much more. In this issue of FOCUS, we explore the power of travel to change our perceptions of ourselves and the world, and look at some of the reasons why it is so important to leave home. We also introduce you to some Boise State travelers who have visited the world's far reaches, as well as international students who have brought their world to Boise. Cover collage by John Kelly.
