Welcome to the first installment of 2018’s Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Almost every year I try to complete the challenge. And sometimes I actually succeed.
Why am I starting the month off with All 50 States? Because it is my main travel goal and a definite bucket list item. Before I pick up with any more international travel, I want to visit every state in the US. How many do I have to go? A lot!
Apparently, I only visit coasts… But a trip to Alaska this summer will at least get me out of the continental states and a possible trip to Missouri in the Fall will get me into the middle of the country.
How do I determine where I’ve been? As long as I get out of the car or airport for a specific activity, I count it as having visited. There are a couple of the states on the map I’ve driven through, so I’ve been there, but I wouldn’t count it as having visited. I also don’t count layovers has having “been there.”
Have any recommended trips/places to visit for the states I’m missing? I’d love to hear them!
