I understand that the majority of Americans don’t own a passport. I didn’t have one myself until I was an adult, but I’ve made good use of it since then. Both of my own children got passports by the time they were two months old.
Here is a list of the countries that I’ve visited to date:
1.) U.S.A. (Even though it didn’t require a passport, I had to include it on the list. Many Americans don’t bother to see much of their own country, but I’ve visited most of the states and major cities.)
2.) Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Calgary, and the Canadian Rockies)
3.) Mexico (Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo san Lucas, Mazatlan, Tijuana, Ensenada, and the Baja Coast)
4.) The U.K. (England, Scotland & the British Virgin Islands)
10.) The Netherlands
Why do everybody pick the bad part of Canada? 😦
The Maritimes are much better! 🙂
I hope that you went to Yorkshire when you visited England 😉
I too hope your English travels took you to Yorkshire, a place that manages to mix some of the prettiest villages and countryside in the country with some of the ugliest towns.
No, unfortunately I did not get a chance to see much of the English countryside. I’ve spent significant time driving around and exploring many of the other countries I’ve visited. While in the UK, I spent a week or so driving around Scotland (twice), enjoying the scenic landscape, visiting smaller villages, and celebrating Hogmanay and a wedding in true Scottish style. When I was in England though, I was primarily visiting friends in London and doing city stuff. I’ll have to add Yorkshire to my list of places to visit some day.
Will, the Maritimes do sound beautiful, and there are several parts of Canada I’d still like to see, but I thought that the Canadian Rockies were quite beautiful too. I enjoyed spending days on end hiking along the dramatic mountainside and seeing crystal-clear glacier-fed lakes.
I finally renewed my passport last summer so I could go on any spur of the moment work trips with my husband.
