    Does it count if the "travel" was in a canoe, and involved no contact with any people at all?

    We talking landscape or people?

    Tell us where you went in a canoe and we'll convene a panel and decide whether to allow this as "travel".

    Well, I don't have much to say.
    I was born in Puerto Plata, D. R.
    I traveled to Spain in 1996.
    I traveled twice to the USA in 1996 and 1997.
    I went to Haiti by bus in 2000.
    Now I live in Florida, USA since last year.
    I have gone to New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

    While I was in the USN I slept in 72 countries, traveled through a few more. Some guys used "30 days paid leave annually" to go home. I used it to go everywhere but home.

    My secondary motivator for joining the Navy. I had been in three states when I graduated from high school, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. But unlike some of my classmates I knew there was a larger world out there. For them a trip to Chicago was an adventure. I wanted to spend the night in a tent listening to lions hunt somewhere in the darkness.

    I was in the Navy for 8 years, but I was on a SSBN so I got to see a lot of the inside of a submarine. NOT a good move IMO.

    I've been to relatively few places: Canada, Mexico, Japan, China/Taiwan, and Thailand.

    Eventually I would go to more places. I'm most interested in the Ethiopian Highlands.

    Try driving around the Med in a VW microbus. That was 1973, I don't know if you could do the trip today. Weirdest part of the trip was going to Cyprus, getting a visa on a slip of paper, traveling to Israel, backing up to the border and driving down to Egypt. (Yes, we were stoned, so what?) When we got back to Cyrus they removed the piece of paper and we went on to Egypt. (Gymnastics were required due to the type of passport we were traveling with.)

    At my age, the part from Ceuta to the Rock of Gibraltar would be tough. I know I can't hold my breath that long...

    Certainly. No one really likes to tell that hasn't travelled widely.
