::: travel :::

Given that I like ticking stuff off lists, it will probably come as little surprise to know that I like visiting lots of new places for the sake of doing so!

Right now, I'm trying to visit all 50 States in the USA. When I've finished, I shall turn my attention to visiting every country in the world.

Here's a surprising fact: There's only one English County (on either the Ancient or the 1970s boundaries) that I have never visited - Cornwall!
