One of my main goals in life is to visit 100 countries by the time I’m 30. I’m currently at 84 after visiting Belarus! :) per my latest calculation I'll end the Summer at 97 or 98 countries... :D
So far for 2014, I’ve booked quick weekend trips to Dominican Republic and Antigua. A long weekend trip to Malta, Cyprus and Northern Cyprus in February, a weekend trip to Shanghai in early March, quick trip to Belarus, a weekend in Portugal in April for a friend’s birthday, another weekend in Milan, then yet another weekend trip in May to Nicaragua and El Salvador, then a big trip around Memorial day possibly to Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia... In July, I’m going to the World Cup (got tickets for the Third Place match) but before that I'm debating Island hopping around the smaller Caribbean islands and the Guyanas… add in a couple weekend trips to the West Coast due to some Delta mistake fares (Google it! :) ) I know I’m missing some trips, I even keep a Google Spreadsheet with all my weekends to avoid double-booking myself (which has happened before hehe)
Basically, I live to travel, I work full time as a Management Consultant in New York, but I used to be on the road Monday through Thursday.
I won’t deny it, Traveling is my main drive in life, so many people say they love to travel on okCupid and then it’s just a yearly trip to one country or god forbid a cruise in the Caribbean. :(
What I’m looking for is a partner in crime, who has a decent job and can match my lifestyle/pace, someone who feels just as comfortable on a long bus ride in rural Sri Lanka as on a nice beach resort or random old town in Europe…
Additional background info: Born in Brooklyn, spent 10 years living in Argentina, have multiple passports, no pets for now :( , currently live in Rego Park (near Forest Hills) and work near Grand Central
