At the age of 38, I recognized that I had actually been to 39 states and 38 nations and areas, which felt quite cool. Since I like discovering approximate methods to make my life unnecessarily difficult, I chose I would constantly attempt to keep my state and my nation counts at or ahead of my years-on-earth count.
In September I went to Idaho for the very first time, moving into 40 specifies one month ahead of my 39 th birthday. Last March I went to Vietnam and Hong Kong, which I believed brought me to 40, up until I recognized I might count Vatican City and Palestine and be all the method approximately 42.
In January I’ll be checking out Togo and Ghana for the very first time, which implies I will be reasonably safe in the nations department for some time. Nevertheless, I’m currently a little nervous about how I’m going to acquire state number41 I’m past due for a see to Missouri to see my buddies, Ryan and Tom (hi!!!), which’s most likely what I’ll do. However I keep believing I need to knock out Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, and Arkansas in one fell trip swoop and you understand it’ll take me like 10 years to perform on that strategy. I might more quickly go to Georgia, the only state on the eastern coast I have not technically gone to, however I have grand prepare for that state, too. When it boils down to it, I have grand prepare for all over I wish to go, so I either requirement to begin investing more money and time on holidays or end up being more at peace with breaking them up into little bite sized pieces. I’m not exactly sure which alternative is less unlikely.
