Re: Traveling... An addiction.
Ive done quite a bit of travel over the years... managed to fill 2x passports (both with double pages), and am half way through the third one now.. 86 countries in all so far.. many of them have been visited multiple times..
Work has been the primary reason for all the moving around.. but my wife and I like to travel recreationally as well and try to do at least 1 international and a couple of domestic trips each year..
this year we'll be spending a week in Turkey.. and will be doing about 4 days in NYC.. and another week or so at our cabin in southern colorado..
we're already planning 2014 as well.. running the bulls in Pamplona, Spain is on the top of the list right now (strong possibility)..
I dont get around as much these days as I used to for work.. but I still end up in Africa 4+ times a year.. and normally end up in at least 1 other international location every year as well... also usually make 3 or 4 trips to DC, a couple of trips down to the virginia tidewater.. and a couple of trips to other parts of the country as well for work each year..
between the air miles I rack up on work trips.. and the discounts my wife gets on hotels (she works for Marriott).. we pay next to nothing to travel internationally on vacations.. and take full advantage of it every chance we get...
