An intrepid traveler who I greatly admire once told me that he wanted to keep the number of stamps in his passport at least on par with his age. By age 40 for example, he wants to have been to 40 or more countries. I was smitten with the idea, and incessant traveler that I am, decided to adopt it as one of my ongoing life goals too.
2012 was a great year of travel for me, fortunate as I was to add four new countries to my list (for the curious: Morocco, Egypt, Czech Republic and Italy). Fast forward to 2013 (Happy New Year, by the way!) and here I am on the cusp of turning 32, but my country list still hovers at 31. No need for alarm, this year’s forecast is looking exotic. With a spanking new passport and a one way ticket to Argentina spiriting me to South America in a few weeks, my stamp count may indeed top 40 long before I hit the big four zero.
What are your travel goals for 2013?
