I have been traveling for over 40 years to many and distant places, travel is my life. When I was in first grade I remember reading "the Sunbonnet Twins in Holland." That got me started. Then Richard Halliburton and his voyages. I got my first passport in 1966 when I was an exchange teacher in England. My travel theory is do the far places when you are younger and don't mind the long flights, then Europe as it is easier, and then the US. I am old and still going to far places, Ethiopia, Algeria and Tunisia last, but I have been to 48 of the 50 states.
