The site that I found to log the states I’ve visited also has the same function for the entire world, and I went ahead and made my own map for that: Abysmal 5.33%. Even worse was when I clicked on a friend’s blog and saw her map of the U.S. Alexia has been to 46% of the states here. Now, less than half the country may not be that great, until you consider she lives in New Zealand. A lot more impressive than making it to 80% of a country where I never have to get off terra firma to do it.
But I looked at my map of the world and realized, although I’ve made it “across the pond” as the British say, I have yet to log a single spot below the equator. So I think I need to officially add to my goals. After I make it to 100% of the continental U.S., I’m going to have to make it below the equator. Maybe Alaska first, but Hawaii is going to wait. If I’m going to go airborne, I might as well make it across the equator.
