Since it’s still early in the year, I thought I’d reflect on our journey: past and future.

In 2010, we added:

Continents: +0
Countries: +10
States: +0

The new countries included: Albania, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands (UK), Corfu (Greece), Croatia, Dominican Republic, Montenegro, Slovenia, and St. Kitts & Nevis.

We also took a couple of weekend trips at home in Florida, as well as to NYC.

Most notably, we added a new traveler to the mix… our beloved daughter, Emerson.

Other notable highlights / memories included: going to Albania (who’d have imagined that?), making an unplanned visit to Slovenia (and then getting ‘kidnapped’ and hit by a car there), going on the inaugural voyage of the M/S Nieuw Amsterdam, eating some excellent meals in NYC (DBGB, Les Halles, Craftbar), and enjoying a very relaxing week sailing around the Caribbean with the family.

In 2011, based on our current plans, we expect to add:

Continents: +2
Countries: +20!
States: +2

At this pace, Libby and I will pass the half-way point to our goal in 2011 with 80 of 157 places visited, specifically 5 of 7 continents, 54 of 100 countries, and 21 of 50 states.

Notable highlights / firsts of 2011 should include: crossing the equator, taking Emerson on her first overseas trip, returning to London after a hiatus of two years, visiting Antarctica, and traveling to Russia.

    Russia? Hadn’t heard about that. I can see it from my…no that’s not it. I flew over it once (Paris to Tokyo) but that wouldn’t count.

    Yes, it’s actually: Norway, Denmark, Sweeden, Latvia(!), Russia(!), and Finland… in 7 days!
