New locations visited in 2008 travel included Mauritania, DPRK (North Korea), and the Amazon region of Peru. I also made it to Opening Day of the Boston Red Sox season in Tokyo, Japan. I've added Turkmenistan in 2009, and then Yemen, Oman, and UAE in 2010. Later, got to Sudan and Zanzibar with a stopover in Addis.
On short notice, I went with Koryo Tours to Mongolia in 2014 and then to their inaugural tour of Tajikistan in March 2015.
