I've been traveling since the age of 17 when I was an exchange student. Truthfully, I don't count places in the same way as this site does, but rather "real" countries. So, this spring I will reach 100 countries with my trip to Cuba. I tend not to focus on dates and places and details, but rather on the people with whom I connect and the experiences I have, whether that be African dancing in Ghana or looking into the eyes of a cheetah in Botswana or talking with the hulu tribesmen in PNG. For me, it's all about connection and I love being connected on a global scale.
My Favorite Places:
Places that pulsate with passion and energy. Africa and South America in particular.
