I must ask you how you managed to fit in all that travel at your age,independently weathy or just plain ole resourceful?
I've paid my way with pasta, and driven the same 3-cylinder car for the last 8 years.
Most of my visits to any given country have been short in duration. I started travelling in high school (15 day class trip to Japan and Thailand, from a rural working class school; I had a part-time dishwashing job to pay for it), have had a couple of semi-major trips since, and my SO is Korean, so I've got a second home country now. I squeezed a free week-long stopover in KL on the way back from Australia (flying on Malaysian Airlines). It's those kind of little tricks that allow you to rack up travel stories.
