Places I’ve Been

Every time I see people traveling, I get so jealous. But then I have to check myself. I don’t want to be jealous. I want to be happy for them. It’s important for me to remember not to compare myself to others and to reflect on my abundant life.

Exploring the world is my greatest passion. When I look at a map, I realize how much of the world I still have to see. I am fortunate though, that over the last 10 years, I’ve explored so many corners of the world.

I’ve swam (and almost drowned) in multiple oceans, I’ve seen mountains, deserts, jungles, prairies, and experienced just about every climate there is.

Here’s a brief run-down of some of the places I’ve been.

I’ve traveled across Canada and Mexico so I am not going to list many individual cities. I’ve just listed places I spent more than 1 week visiting.
