Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries.

"From the great treasury of Marxism-Leninism, we draw basic principles and historical lessons to shed light on the people's war that we are waging.

To dispense w…
