Starting in 2016, I’ve made excursions out of the US. Ireland and Scotland, then 8 countries through Western and Central Europe in 2017. Last year was Costa Rica.
One funny thing about traveling out of the country is that you meet many locals there (or fellow travelers) amazed you haven’t seen all of your own country. So, this year I’m seeing Alaska – somewhere I’ve wanted to go for a long time.
Flights are now booked, and in two months I’ll be exploring what John Muir has called “one of the most wonderful countries in the world.”
