I am a lucky, albeit belligerent, man that my job allows me the privilege of travel. Even better I get to travel as I see fit so that makes me damn lucky. I have had the great fortune of being able to have flown almost 2.5 millions miles, see most of the 50 states and see something like 20 countries in my 37 years. I have no intention of slowing down and as the minions grow up I cannot wait to bring them to some of my favorite destinations and find a couple of new ones along the way with them.
That being said I have some places that I am truly not interested in seeing and it is hard to say why. Does this mean I will not visit them, no, probably not. It is just that it kinda kills me a little every time I have to see one of the Hell No places instead of a YES. So for my posterity I will list a few YES and HELL NO places below –
- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
- India – Ummm no. Not into the culture, food or anything of historical significance. Sorry.
- Mexico – The slogan for their tourism board should read – MEXICO: WHY NOW?
- Venezuela – Seems odd to want to be surrounded by stupidity. Just saying.
Clearly I am missing many countries but most fit into the “sure why not” category such as Brazil, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Poland, etc, etc. The more telling thing is the countries I have never wanted to visit.
