This article reflects my faculty professional development travel abroad prodigious experiences encountered as a traveler to Lima, Peru. My travel was sponsored in part by the Kennesaw State University (KSU) Year of Peru initiative and the KSU Psychology Department. The Peruvian global engagement experience enriched my future academic pursuits of teaching, research, mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, and professional faculty development. Tangentially, the Peru experience also intensified and heightened my appreciation for Lima’s diversified history, culture, and people.
