I love to travel. If pressed I would say it has something to do with the fact that I grew up in a tiny isolated town where I read books about other places and thought "someday, I'm gonna go there." Usually, I do it big. If it doesn't involve a passport and 9 hour flight or a cross country drive I wasn't all that into it. As a result I have been a lot of places, but never really explored my own back yard too much. Well, like most folks the economy has shrunken my wallet a bit and now I am really not able to afford the "Big" trips. So, in honor of my new back yard approach here is my Accounting Travel Edition.
Ten countries I told my high school English teacher I wanted to visit (in alphabetical order): Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Romania, Scotland, Spain.
Number of countries I have visited from that list: 5 (England, Scotland, Ireland, Czech Republic, France).
Number that have been added to the list since then: 62
Number of times I have visited London: 4
Number of countries I could cross off my list if I had gone there instead of London (Again): 3
When I realized that: Just now.
Prices for my plane tickets to London in chronological order:
Cheapest Flight Deal: Round trip London to Belfast for $4.00
Most expensive "cheap" flight: Round trip London to Czeck Republic $35.00 Plus nearly $350.00 in fees because I missed my flight both ways and had to re-book!
Total number of countries I have visited: 9
Number of US States I have visited: 41
Number of US States I have lived in: 5
US Travel Goal: To see a game in every MLB ballpark.
Number of parks I can cross off my list: Four
Number I visited only to have the team tear it down and build another one: Two
Number I was supposed to visit this summer but facist ticketing practices have ruled that out: 1 (yes, I am talking to you Los Angeles Dodgers).
Number of trips I still have planned for this summer: 3 (Reno, Ashland, TBD)
Trips I was supposed to take this weekend, but may be snowed out: 1 (In theory I am supposed to travel to Reno this weekend. In reality it is snowing... Um, I don't "do" weather, so we'll see how it goes.)
