I have been traveling around this planet steadily since I was 3 years old. I have been around the world many times now and will continue to travel until the day I finally pass on. I want to see and experience all that God has made around the world. Furthermore, I never claim to have been somewhere unless I have actually stepped foot there. Landing at airports, just passing through on a train or by boat does not count! Unless you actually intended to be in a place, to me, it does not count. As such, I can say that I have flown, sailed, cruised, road, walked, ran, slept, hiked, biked, SCUBA dived and even snowboarded my way around the planet, met many people, experienced many cultures, ate countless meals of all different types of foods, took countless photographs, and loved every minute of it.
Lastly, Just because you may have been to a country, does not mean that you have seen the whole country, or even been everywhere within that country. That is why I would rather list cities I have been to over countries. It would give a more accurate count of worldly travel.
