So… I turned 30 and the world didn’t end! Who would have thought? I am happy to say that I was able to complete my travel goal, and am making my way through a quick recap of the countries I visited by my 30th birthday. Why USA? Just to experience the different sub-cultures the country has to offer. The “melting pot”, as it is known, is different from east to west coast, from north to south. Oh! and soul food… make a trip just to get you some grits!
Welcome to my mother’s birthplace, and the second country I visited, the first time barely 2 years old. Rich in natural cane sugar (which is turned into some of the world’s finest rum) and home to the flying fish, Barbados is an ecological wonder. With its unspoiled (and sometimes deadly) beaches, fun loving culture, relaxed way of life and interesting culture, how could you not want to visit Barbados?
This is it! In just under a month, I will stop being a fun-loving 20-something year old and start a new decade in my life. It will also mark the end of my travel goal. Here’s a quick recap of the countries I visited in my pursuit to visit 30 countries by my 30th birthday. COUNTRY No. 1 – CANADA. Learn why you should go to my home and native land.
