I had traveled some, but not a lot, throughout the first parts of my life. In the 1980’s I had visited Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean a few times, plus had the opportunity to drive across the US to California and also down to Florida. In the 1990’s, I traveled some more, mostly for business to Europe and to various places in the US.
Then in 2000, I started traveling a lot. I had the opportunity to live in Seoul, Korea for work and was able to spend time exploring different parts of Asia. I quit that job, but was traveling again in 2003 when I went to Japan to spend 4 months studying Japanese. And then another 2 months of study in 2005. Check out Studying in Japan 2005, Studying in Japan 2003 and Living in Asia 2000-01, where I provided a blog (web log) online diary of my travels and experiences in Asia.
I am still continuing to travel, adding Taiwan, Ireland, and Ecuador to the countries I nave visited, and revisiting some areas I had been to before. map below shows where I have been so far.
