Create your own visited map of The World
I saw this idea on one of my favorite blogs “Fabulously Broke in the City” at this post.
I made this map so hopefully, in the next year or so, I can watch it grow. I’ve been to a bunch of places, and I’m so grateful for that. But, I can’t wait to see more of South America with Pablo once we start flying on the cheap. Argentina and Chile don’t exactly fit the Latino country stereotype. Most people I’ve met say that Chile and Argentina are really lacking the Latino “hospitality”, which I agree with given my experience in Mexico and Central America (having experienced the warmest hospitality in Mexico). Chile is not very exotic.. its actually a lot like California, landscapely speaking. And, it’s safe.. which, sadly, also doesn’t fit the S. America stereotype. Pablo was trying to convince me that Chile is a third world country, I assured him that any country with 29 Starbucks in the capital city is not a third world country. Somehow, “third world” became a term of development, but it really only had to do with how the country aligned or didn’t align during the Cold War.. but we’ll not get into that. (Chile was a third world country)
My point is.. I’d really like to see the rest of the countries around here.. maybe feel a little unsafe, get a sunburn, and maybe even be hassled to buy stupid souvenirs in the streets. Now that’s what I call traveling.
Arggg… As I’m typing this.. I remembered how much of this country I want to see too.
I give up. I wanna go everywhere.
What would be your first choice S. America destination?
