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
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 Lexington and Louisville, KY in September and November
