I've been meaning to write this tiny excerpt on why I believe Zuck and his wife Priscilla have been traveling around the country as part of their 2017 goals. The journalists and media were fast to conclude that the reason was a possible future run for president. As somebody who loves to travel and meet people from different cultures and backgrounds not just in the USA but from all over the world I can say that the reason for the travels is to become better acquainted with the world outside of Silicon Valley.
When you travel you see how other people live, you learn to eat what they eat, experience what they experience on a daily basis, and most importantly you learn from them. The more you learn about other peoples way of life the more understanding you become. It's important to see the world through somebody elses lense and viewpoint and life is all about learning and culture.
So in my opinion that is the reason for the traveling. I look forward to seeing more of his updates on his travels and the lessons we can all learn from the great people he and his wife are interacting with across the country.
