Around The World, F2P Style

Here's a list of places I've been since I acquired my iPhone. I really need to create a map to keep a visual track of it all. It's pretty neat to see a visual like this one. It makes the world feel smaller.

I've been to many places and, as mentioned in my bucket list post, I hope to see many more in the future. 

There are many reasons to travel but most importantly, I think travel is the best way to try new things and to fully appreciate the power of context.

Where have I been? Well, not including airports and "drive by's", I've been to 20 countries so far, including 27 U.S. states and 7 Canadian provinces.

I've included the list below for those who are curious. There's quite a variety but the following continents: South America, and Australia/New Zealand are notably absent. I must correct that, or at least I want to :).
