Always say “yes” to

a tour.

Getting to really know someone is an undeniable path toward kinship. So we ask questions and pay attention and learn. Yet, many times words are not enough; there is something to seeing rather than merely hearing. For many matters, seeing isn’t all that possible, which makes it all the more vital to seize the opportunities when it is. As in, take the house tour, the hometown tour, the mall-where-I-met-my-first-girlfriend tour. By doing this one not only better understands another, but also gains knowledge about the world that would be otherwise unobtainable. 1
