Where I Have Been (as of 5.26.18)

There are approximately 192-196 countries in the world depending on whom you ask, and I’ve been to a grand total of 36 of them (36 if you count Hong Kong and Macao as separate from China). The map below visualizes where my journeys have taken me:



As you can probably tell, it’s a little North America and Asia-centric, which is why my plans for the coming couple years are intended to get more exposure to other continents.


If we’re only looking at the United States, I have been to 32 of the 50 states, plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. The coasts are pretty well traveled, but that midwest strip and northeastern corridor is proving elusive.
