Travel is a great way to understand international relations. Meeting different people and immersing oneself in a foreign culture promotes true understanding a18-Group Photo1nd empathy for another country and its people. CIR typically sponsors one or two trips per year to a foreign country. This is a unique opportunity to travel with like-minded people, many of whom have had broad foreign experience and still seek to expand their understanding of the world through travel.

Trips include, when possible, briefings at U.S. Embassies and visits with former participants of the international visitor program who have previously visited Santa Fe.  It is particularly rewarding when international hosts have the opportunity to share their culture and environment.

In recent years, CIR has sponsored trips to Indonesia, Guatemala and Belize, Morocco, Cuba, and southwest France.
