    • Thanks Jonas. You know, I have been to a lot of really amazing places, some of them several times, but it’s not about the numbers as much as trying to have an amazing and rewarding experience. I do have a target though: however old I am when I die, I want the number of countries I’ve visited to be higher than my age. I’m ahead now, 39 years, 48 countries. But it’s just for fun, and the important thing is to see as much of the world as possible while leaving my positive impact upon it.
      Happy travels,
      Steve.
