Enjoy the journey – I did!

Nine days and ten hours:


“I got this one dad”

9 flights, 7 hotels, 3 continents, 4 countries plus Palestine countless taxis, buses, cars, trains, delays and more than 70 miles walked together and this small part of our father son journey has come to an end.  As they say it’s the journey not the destination (let’s be honest, I like the destinations too), but some of our most memorable moments were when we were simply going, more than when we arrived.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
