30 by 30

Over the years I have accumulated a significant amount of travel miles, but mostly within the United States. There is nothing that I love more than connecting with new cultures, eating delicious food, and meeting new people along the way. As such, I am challenging myself to a 30 by 30 challenge. Normally, people who undertake this challenge aim to do thirty countries by the time they turn 30, but in an effort to not completely stress myself out to obtain this feat, I am embarking on a 30 cities by 30 journey. In my pursuit of these thirty cities, I pledge to visit as many cities in different countries as I can and as a rule I will not include more than 3 cities from each country. I will still document my travels across the U.S. as well, but my emphasis is on international destinations. Stay tuned to this page to see my progress and click on the links to read about my travels to each city:
