We Ain't Seen Nothing Yet!

Jay and I have been exploring places ever since we first met, and even before that time. I think of us as world travellers. Thus far in 2018, we've only added one country though: Brunei. It's not a contest, but I truly want to experience more than the 68 countries or territories I've visited. That number may sound like a lot.

Bah! We've barely scratched the surface, so to speak. Entire continents have been mostly or completely left untouched. We'll never have a chance to see every place we'd like. There simply isn't enough time left.

It's scarier to consider that we now sometimes choose to return to places we've already been. Both major destinations for next winter end up being repeat performances. We have locked in our five-month stay which starts in mid-November in parts of SE Asia we've already seen. I guess there's a big difference between just experiencing a short vacation from work and going somewhere to stay for two and three months. More exposure equals a better understanding of the location and people.

Still, I hope we eventually get back into a routine of brand-new exploration. A place one has never visited could be a future favourite, couldn't it?

I Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

I loaded an Android app called Countries Been. It provided a travel map that's fun to create. I didn't bother to enter cities yet. A whole lot of Asia might appear more complete if I had let two days in Saint Petersburg stand in for all of Russia. The areas which are coloured are where I've visited or lived.
