I was on a friend’s blog today when I ran across this fun little site. I have always been obsessed with maps and traveling, so I thought I‘d give it a try. My friend talked about going to 30 countries by the time she turns 30. I have been to twenty-three nations, which isn’t bad I suppose seeing that something like 70% of Americans have never the left the states! I did not make the 30 by 30, but my plan is to simply try and hit as many of 193 counties that I can before I die. For now, there is a gaping blank space in South America that needs to be remedied soon.
At 32 here is my list:
1. United States
2. Costa Rica
3. Dominican Republic
9. South Africa
17. United Kingdom

Because I am so often labeled as “Anti-American” I also wanted to show how I have traversed this beautiful land of ours. Here are the states I have either visited or at least driven through. Trust me, you would not want to stay in some of these places. I only wish the states could have been highlighted in blue.
