Sharrie Shaw - Shanghai,
Shanghai (District), China
I have traveled as a child, but the real path to travel didn't begin until around 6 when I was transported to another foreign country. The inspiration to travel only truly surfaced when I graduated from university. But in a few short years, I traveled on a monthly basis & for leisure only. I've lived in Indonesia, Singapore, Canada and now China. I've traveled to all the 7 continents and have thus far completed another circuit of 7 continents in a single year in 2005. That is probably my major accomplishment so far, where traveling is concerned. I've also covered all the provinces of China.
In 2009, I hope to visit countries in C. Asia & Middle East, in particular, Israel, Bhutan & Uzbekistan.
All in all, my ultimate goal is to have lived in all 6 continents (I've only lived in 2 - Asia & N. America) for at least a year each. As for Antarctica, it is a great feat for me to have visited it twice. A third would be a bonus. I'd never have dreamed of living there for a year. It's much too cold for me!!!
