Following my separation (eventual divorce), disenchanted by conventional America, I sold everything and took a job in Vietnam teaching English. I thought I would go for just one year, but, when I returned, I was wrestless and bitten by the travel bug. It's been 10 years, 32 countries, 4 continents, and I'm looking to go back out. Re-establishing in the USA is a difficult process and the cost of living has skyrocketed, so it looks like I'll be heading back out to explore a new place. Anyone want to experience a tropical island in Asia with me?
I spent 6 years in the Army, went to Okinawa, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Germany. I married a soldier and went back to Germany, and moved about 15 more times. I am planning a trip to Winipeg in the fall, and we will see what the future brings.
Well....where do I start? I've been everywhere man! France, Bahrain, Capetown, Canary Islands, Messina Sicily, Naples, Milan, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand. I have lived in Australia, England, the Philippines and good ol' U.S. of A. (Texas, Louisiana, New England, California). Does that count. I still want to travel to Spain, Morocco, India and re-visit France and Italy.
I've done quite a bit of traveling. Gotten to see a few other parts of the world.
Been to all but 6 states.
If money were no object, I'd still be traveling.
Turns out, the older I get, the more I need to be comfortable wherever I am.
Sleeping on the ground, or the floor, is no longer an option. Indoor plumbing
is a non-negotiable requirement. There will be no more camping out. Ever.
Would that I could, I'd be hanging out in Italy, full-time. With excursions into Greece,
and multiple points throughout Europe.
I'd also really like to see New Zealand.
I would love to explore Europe and other places I've never been, but every time I seriously think about it, I remember all of the places in the US I've never explored. I've even left places within a hundred miles of me unexplored, so I can scratch that itch without spending a ton of money.
I love to travel. I'm traveling today for a few days. I try to take my son somewhere new every summer. His first flight was when we went to Mexico for a week. He was 9 and still remembers that trip. Last summer we went to Greece for a month. That was a life altering experience for him.
An outlier here. Traveling gives me very intense anxiety. Going places I've never been is a huge trigger. I'm incredibly happy in my comfort zone where I can follow a routine. I'm having to move 30 minutes away to a different city that I've visited many times, but it's really scaring me.
