Happy Thoughts, Happy Places
So, while the memories are still fresh, I decided to unbox my scratch map to document the places I've visited in the past. As you can see, it is still a work in progress.
Asia is still the most visited region because of its proximity.
Europe comes in next. Slovenia and Slovakia are too small to be noticeable here.
The markings on the United States map are confined to tourist spots and a few states where I spent time during business trips.
I do not plan on setting foot in all continents, but I still want to scratch off a few more cities in my bucket list. I am still hoping to experience food-tripping in Montreal, chasing the Aurora Borealis in Scandinavia, being in awe of the Hagia Sophia in Turkey, watching the sunset in Santorini, being mesmerized in Russia. I am still undecided about Latin America and the African continent.
As St. Augustine once said, "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." I have barely begun. I hope to finish the book in this lifetime.
