  1. Wow...that is quite a list! I haven't ever thought about it so here is my list: Florida (where I'm from), Georgia, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, New York, New Jersey, DC, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota,Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico.

  2. Are you living in Texas now?

    Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, Missouri, Nevada, Colorado.

    I have also been to Mexico for one day when I was 13.

    I am sure you have guessed that I am not much of a world traveler.

  3. I laughed when I read your comment about buying peanuts in West Virginia. You also ate lunch there. Also, you spent the night in Virginia and the airport is in Virginia so I think you can totally count them. Lol. Didn't you go out to Minnesota with the rest of us?

    States for me: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Washington, California and Tennessee. This is totally off the top of my head so I may have missed one or two.

  4. wow I am impressed! what a list, love this dramatic shot.

  5. I'd need to see a map to name them all as most of my travels through the states have been part of choir tours where I was on a bus and would roll off and ask "where are we?" But I think I've been to 24 of the states, which is pretty good for a Canadian girl. How many provinces/territories have you been to?
