Around the World

The other day I updated my Where I've Been map. I've been lucky and blessed to have visited 10% of the world. Even though I've traveled to 30 countries, oddly enough I still feel as though I haven't seen or been to many parts of the world. It's a small world and yet, the earth is large and relatively unexplored. There's just so much to see and one day I want to see it all. As I was looking at a world map, I mused over all the places I want to go next. I've made a short wanderlust list which begins with snowboarding in different countries and continues with seeing more of Australia and New Zealand, going on an actual safari, teaching English in Asia, brave a rainforest, Galapagos Island and Tibet. The list goes on and on.
There's many things I love about traveling. I love taking pictures, seeing different sights, experiencing new things, tasting new foods, listening and learning, meeting new people and much more.
Traveling is life speaking to me. If I could, I would be a nomad, seeking the unknown and getting lost in happy places. There's truth in saying it's a wonderful world.
The places I want to go: Antarctica and the rest of the world.

thank you for your comment!
To answer your question, I did the drawing on paper, then scanned it and used Photoshop to put it together with the photo I took of myself.

Wow I just had a conversation like this with a coworker. She said she'd been to what she thought was a lot of countries but 'Where I've been' calculated it as 5% of the world. Reminds us just how big this world is.

I need to see more! What has your favourite been so far?
