This new one is my third passport. I got my first when I was 21 and going to Europe for a month on a (drunken) college trip. For my renewal in 1997, I was pregnant and going to visit ex when he was stationed in Germany. That one expired in March and my third is for our cruise during Spring Break.
I rarely talk about my travels here, but I would like to take the opportunity to share now. My favorite things to do here and abroad are to see architecture and visit art museums. I've been to most of the major art museums in Europe, something I am so proud to have prioritized in my youth. I also love to go to grand cathedrals and am a sucker for stained glass and carved stone, so castles work, too. Hence, Caribbean travel, well, it's just not what this city sightseer prefers, but of course I'll gladly do it. heh
For the record, all of this is personal travel, not business. Only four trips were due to military conjugal visits - 2 to Germany, 2 to Korea. I travel on the cheap, so none were extravagant. That's how I accomplish so much, I think. The trip to Scotland, England, and Wales in 1993, I did on my own with a backpack.
Here's my list of countries visited in order of destination:
Canada (many times)
Germany (both as West Germany and Plain Germany, 3x)
South Korea (2x)
Arenal (Exceedingly Hot) Volcanic Springs
I really want to go to Prague and Vienna (either one for Thanksgiving one year - I want to see the Klimt stuff in Vienna especially), plus some place in South America - I'm flexible. And Morocco, although it seems very dangerous.
What countries have you visited? What am I missing? What would you like to reminisce about? Where do you dream of going? What do you especially like to see when you travel?
