States NOT visited:

  • Maine
  • Connecticut (I think)
  • Rhode Island
  • Washington
  • Oregon
  • Alaska
  • Hawaii


I'll eventually pick up ME and CT on AT hiking trips.  I don't know if I'll ever visit Rhode Island, it isn't really on the way to anything.  

Someday I'll do a trip to the Pacific Northwest and visit Oregon and Washington.  

Alaska will probably be a cruise someday.  

I would love to see Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.  

Countries I HAVE visited:
  • Canada
  • Germany (although at the time it was West Germany)
  • Austria
  • Italy

I've also been close enough to see part of what is now Slovenia but at the time it was part of Yugoslavia.  

My biggest regret in International travel is not going to see the Berlin Wall when it was still real and they were still really shooting people who tried to escape East Berlin.  I went to Germany, Austria, and Italy in the summer of 1989 and we had an option to go to Berlin and see the City and the Wall.  At the time I truly believed that I could go back and see the Berlin Wall decades later so I opted for Venice, Italy instead.  Venice is nothing but a tourist trap and I missed my chance to see the Berlin Wall.  A few months after I got home I watched on TV as the Wall was opened.

Some of the Caribbean islands are right up there with Venice, as far as disappointments go.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Me? Ontario and Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, BC and the Yukon.

So far Ontario (Windsor, Toronto, and Ottawa), Alberta (Calgary and Edmonton), and BC (Vancouver). 

Every one of those trips was for work, except for Windsor. I used to go there when I was 19-20 years old since the drinking age is 19 there lol...

It's somewhat nice all the places I've been able to see in my life so far, but somewhat depressing how many of them were business trips. Outside of Windsor and one day in Ensenada, every single one of my international trips was business-related except my Italy/Paris trip when I got married in 2018.

Lived in Illinois, Indiana, California, and Georgia.

Although I think California should count double because I lived in both NorCal and SoCal, which often seem like different states...

Provinces are huge.  Ontario from E to W has elements of urban jungle and total remote BFE and that's the most populous .  I look forward to returning to Quebec,  particularly Quebec City and the eastern provinces.

Yeah, Ontario spans the entire Great Lakes region.

I ventured into the Yukon when I was in Alaska. Got to see the Carcross desert which is the world's smallest; literally just a couple of acres on the side of the road. Not sure why that spot doesn't get any water.

One piece of advice my late grandmother gave me (when I was a young teen) was to travel the world first, before traveling the US, because you can always see the home country later in age (if I'm afforded a long life, that is), but going international gets exponentially harder as you age & run out of energy, time, & physical capabilities.  So I have not made it a priority to see all 50 states at this time and there are probably more states I haven't been to than those I have seen.  However I have almost as many countries under my belt as states, so I feel pretty good about my travels so far. 

States I have been to:   Texas (obvi), Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida & Ohio.     (5 of these are thanks to our CFN Board Meetings!!) 

Countries I have been to:   Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras (the islands only), Bahamas, Jamaica, Spain, France, Italy, England, Holland, Denmark, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany


I would much rather touch foot on all 7 continents than see all 50 states, personally, because its much more fulfilling & exciting being in crazy cool places so far from what I'm used to.  I just love that part of traveling the most - seeing the unfamiliar rather than the familiar.

That's great advice. It's easy to think you'll be flitting around Europe after retirement, but that's when overseas travel gets hard.
