I look through the slim back notebook I always carry in my bag. I list the international spots I want to visit, sixteen voyages over a lifetime. If I make one journey a year, I’ll be almost 60 when I complete this list. None of these destinations are close or easy. Why do I dream so big?
Here are those 16 trips:
Central & South America (5): Costa Rica, Galapagos, Baja Mexico, Guatemala & Belize, Argentina.
Africa (3): Egypt, South Africa, Tanzania.
Europe (4): Sweden, Helsinki & Estonia & St. Petersburg, The Balkans, Greece.
Asia (4): Nepal, India, Vietnam, China.
I tour Vietnam this month, paring the travel list down to 15 destinations. Perhaps I can see another spot over Christmas later this year.
