I’m ecstatic to embark on my most ambitious dream, 25 years in the making!

Opportunity to win a competition today with clues below...

After graduating high school I set out alone to Central America with a backpack and a dream. I wanted to visit all 196 countries on the planet. In 2019 I’ll be striving to reach beyond the midpoint, 100! I’m not breaking any speed records to 196 but I’ve had unforgettable adventures in each, not just a stop over in the airport.. It took me 25 years, frequently on a shoestring budget backpacking to reach 93 countries and all seven continents. With each of the next 7 countries I plan to run a marathon or ultra, culminating this year in a 100 miler in my 100th country.

I’m looking forward to sharing the adventures with my students, friends and family.
I love combining my passion to run and travel to explore history, culture, art and nature. There will also be opportunities to win prizes from sponsors with geography and running challenges.

I’m not giving up my day job teaching high school social studies. International destinations will happen around my teaching schedule beginning this month and March, although I’ve been known to escape away to another country over the weekend.

My goal in 2019 is to personally reduce my plastic use and create more awareness of the amount of plastics reaching our waterways and the seas as well as to support a charity with the same mission.

Guess the country I’m en route for the opportunity to win a piece of art from the country. First to guess correctly wins. Here are the clues...

(Traveling to a country with which I wasn’t very familiar until this past year when looking back over countries not to miss. It’s flag has some blue symbolic of the sea. It has a significant mountain named after a U.S. President. It has a popular physical feature so bountiful that you’ll always have a different choice each day in a circle of the sun. Enter guess under comments.)

The orange on the map represents countries I’ve visited and grey countries I have yet to visit.
