Trip Report 195 Countries To Visit Before I Die ... Maybe?

Jump to last reply

Many years ago, I received as a gift “1000 Places To See Before I Die”. This seemed like an impossible task until with the inspiration of my best friend we manage to rework the numbers using a bit of Enron and Wall Street accounting practices. Instead of 1000, How about 195? …. Instead of Places, How about Countries? We are still working on the dying part but I have a head start.

Having been born in a country it's now 194... My work and passion for travel knocks off another 40. The numbers are falling like my 401k retirement account but makes this task seem more and more possible.

Please join me with your stories, comments and suggestions as I chronicle (with sometimes questionable memory) my life through two of the many things I enjoy, travel and writing.

Visit my blog at: www.dmbtraveler195.blogspot.com and with your help we will share the journey of a life time and hopefully the longest trip report ever.

I will begin with the most important country, my birthplace.
