"Soon-to-be World Traveler" BigBlueOne's Profile

Me

I work as a VP of a hospital full time and as an aspiring traveler part time. I would love the opportunity to flip-flop those but I fear being broke wouldn't suit me.

Traveler's Century Club

One of my goals is to join the Traveler's Century club TravelersCenturyClub. Basically, the idea is that you join this club after having visited 100 unique locations. Unique could mean separate countries or it could mean areas within countries that are geographically, politically, or in some other way, diverse.

Right now I have 20 of the potential areas...
Mainland U.S.
Mexico
British Virgin Islands
Hawaii
Puerto Rico
Jamaica
Bahamas
US Virgin Islands
St. Maarten
St. Martin
Costa Rica
Tahiti
Alaska
Canada
Cayman Islands
Barbados
Bermuda
France
Prince Edward Island
St. Pierre & Miquelon

Future Trips

Trips for 2013...

Chicago, IL in March and April
Louisville, KY in April
St. Martin, St. Maarten, Saba, St. Brats, and Antigua in June
Washington D.C. In July
Mexico in July
