I’m happy that I already did my traveling in the 90’s. Saw 10 different countries, had all sorts of light bulbs go on. Would have seen more, but I also spent time driving 200,000+ miles to 34 different states. Alas, my flying days are over thanks to the TSA. I wish others would do the same. If the airports were empty, even just for a day, the TSA would end. Money is the only language they speak. Irradiation or molestation just to fly? No thanks…
If I had the means I’d be on a world tour right now. The only country I’ve been to besides the USA is Mexico, and that was only a day trip across the border, no further than a couple of miles in. I don’t even think that really qualifies as having gone to another country. “Irradiation or molestation” you said a mouthful there. I may be doing a little flying in the near future. Thanks for the friendly reminder. 😐
Sorry! Didn’t mean to spook you! ‘A little flying’ is one thing, but with the amount of traveling I was doing at the time, I would have had to go through it quite a lot.
And, I didn’t really have the means…I was just lucky. First of all, flying and gas was a lot cheaper in the 90’s. I also had friends in other states, and I also have family in 4 countries. So, I went places I could stay for free as a ‘home base’, and went from there, staying in hostels and other cheap lodgings, taking over-night trains to save hotel stays, and even sleeping in my car a few times! I actually managed all the traveling working only part time. Like I said, I was just lucky.
Oh no, not spooked, just reminded of the “fun” I have to look forward to. It definitely helps to have friends and family around the world. It helps me when bouncing around the 48 states, but beyond that I’m on my own. Maybe I’ll try doing some Couch Surfing some day, making new friends along the way. 🙂
