Our national hero was also an awesome traveler. Happy 151 to our man, Jose Rizal! (via TravelFactorHQ)
I liked how Travel Factor perceived Rizal as one who traveled a lot. And it was actually in his travels that Rizal’s perspective of humanity was widened. Ironically though, as written in most of his letters to his family, he is frequently reminded of the Philippines by the sights and sounds he encountered abroad.
The design above also reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Pepe: “Man is multiplied by the number of languages he possesses and speaks.” Of course, that is with the assumption that wherever one goes, one makes the conscious effort to learn the language of that place, be it just here in the Philippines, or abroad.
