Travel

AG Travel Collage

Outside of work, I’m passionate about traveling the world, having new experiences, and broadening my perspective. I have a long, ambitious list of places that I want to try and visit in my lifetime, so I decided to start tracking where I’ve been and where I’d like to go in the future.

The places I’ve listed out below are grouped by geographical belonging, not cultural significance (for example, Russia being listed under Asia and not Europe). Additionally, I do not count laying over in an airport as having visited a destination. I only mark a country or state as having been visited when I actually set foot in it and do something.

In putting together trip itineraries over the years, I’ve used all kind of travel tools. This article nicely groups these together while also summarizing the primary value proposition of each.

The time of year matters when planning travel. This article offers heat maps indicating high, low, and shoulder seasons for every country in the world.
