A small part of me is collecting countries the same way I’m collecting train lines, I travel to tick places off on my map. It’s the same reason I’ve found myself addictedly playing SimCity again this weekend.
But there’s more to it than that. I travel because I can and I travel to make and hear stories. The past few years have been the first time in my life where I have the money, spoons and freedom to do this. And to not take advantage of that would be wrong.
I travel to all these countries in order to share stories because others can’t.
