My Travel Map 

When I was a graduate student, I was very envious of my PhD supervisor who had an entire bookshelf-lined room full of travel books, and a house full of exotic souvenirs from the oddest places. I promised myself that I’d try to do the same, too!

Well, I am not quite as successful as he was, yet. Service learning and a heavy teaching load does have a way of interfering with travel plans. But still, I am proud to say that I have visited 54 countries to date: (map from traveltip.org)
