According to this map, I have visited 15% of countries! John has made me measure my travel by the # of states/countries/continents that I've visited.
Our goal: hit all 50 states! during our life. I've made it to 34 states....66%! Not bad.
I also want to hit all of the continents. I need to hit Asia (should be easy...I'd love to see the Great Wall, the beaches in Thailand or Vietnam, and Kyoto in Japan). I also need Antartica. John and I have our eye on a cruise that takes you to Antartica.
I always have the travel bug. Thanks to work, I may make it back to either Spain or Sweden this summer. Both countries rank on my top of the list. I was in Sweden two years ago...in the summer. John went at Christmas time. Boy, what a difference! I stayed in Stokholm and loved the city. It was beautiful. Truly a wonderful city. Plus, Stokholm's the only place I've ever seen/eaten licorice flavored ice cream. Wonderful!!
And Spain....oh, I love Spain. I love the culture and the lifestyle. I love the ham (serrano jambon) sandwiches and the sangria. I love the architecture...the meshing of Muslim and Christian buildings.
Gotta run...John's on the radio!
