The U.S. of A. by train, bus, car, and foot? How can that qualify as a happiness definition? I hate to fly and I’m not all that happy about traveling in general yet I’d love to visit every state. Don’t know why – guess I could figure it out as I go. I use to think that place mattered but now, after a few experiments, I’m not so sure.
I live in Kentucky and think it may be a good start to visit each of the 120 counties! That sounds like a lot. It also reminds me that to really get a feel for a state I’d need to do more than stay in a Priceline selected hotel downtown and visit art museums and local restaurants yet that is what I would do by default. So before embarking on this grand adventure I’d better do some soul searching and some travel guide reading and get some local tips AND figure out exactly how I see the whole expedition fitting into my happiness definition.
