There are 50 states in the country I live in, 195 countries on the planet, several billion people on Earth, and oh yes the rather large ocean which covers 80% of the planet. My point is there’s a lot of places you could go and visit.
How do you decide where to go? What gets a pin on your Conquest Map and how do you even decide what to prioritize? It’s downright intimidating I think.
After all, the other 7.9 billion people on this planet are always in your ear about how to go here, or there, or see this, and oh yes you must visit this place. It’s to the point that our travel ears and brain are ready to explode!
Let me offer an alternative solution to you. Pick something you love and niche it out. Then pin up all those places on your map and start a quest to go see this “passion” of yours and experience the culture and wonder that they have to offer you.
This is what I am calling the “Pin Your Passion Travel Series” and I’m going to be sharing a monthly different possible passion to consider or at the very least allow you to get those creative juices in your brain flowing, instead of feeling overwhelmed by the fact that you likely can’t see every ocean reef or country in the world next year. The first offering in this series is the United States National Parks.
I am currently on a quest to visit the 61 US National Parks. I have visited 49 of them and I have plans to knock out six more in 2020 and 2021. That would leave six parks in Alaska for 2022 that would involve a significant, and amazing, trip up to remote places in Alaska to finish my quest while still in my 30’s! I am committed to seeing this quest completed in 2022.
