Travel within own country or outside?

United States
May 2, 2009 9:16pm CST
I recently took my forst trip outisde the United States where I live. But the United States is so big that there are many places in the US I'd still like to visit. It is a lot easier, bith time and financially to travel within one's own country, but it was great to experience other cultures when traveling outside the US. When choosing traveling destinations, would you rather travel inside your own county, or outside?

I would like to be able to travel in my own country first, so that I may be able to share things about my country to the people I meet when I travel outside. Its embarassing if people asks me about my country and I do not know what to tell them. I want to be able to recommend to them places that they should go to if ever they decide to visit my country.

I don't think the President did anything special on his 100th day, but it is a day the media reflects and reviews what steps he has taken. They do this for all Presidents and Governors. Of course, his party gives him good marks and the opposition gives him bad marks.

Malaysia has 13 states too. In each states, there are a few tourism spots to visit too. So far, I have yet visiting every states. There are still many places that I wish to visit within my country. Traveling within country is cheaper compare to other countries especially when the foreign exchange rates is high. But then, it is always very exciting when you can get visit to other countries, you get to see more. The cultures, the weather, the season, the architectural design, and many more. I choose to travel within and outside own country alternatively.

My home country is small with interesting and historical sights but it is expensive and the weather can be quite poor. Since a very young age I wanted to travel to different countries. I have been to 52 countries in the world so far in my life and I plan to visit many more. The ones that I have been to that I enjoyed most of all are Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Belize and the Seychelles. I am especially keen on tropical islands, palm fringed beaches, native wildlife and interesting cities. I have been to the USA three times and hope to see more of it because it is so fascinating but large. I would much rather travel abroad than in my own country.
