Where else is there left to discover?

In this age of mass tourism is there anywhere else left to go? Has the rest of the world still got things to show us and why do the majority of Americans still not own a passport?

Well, I know there is a ton left for me to discover. LOL But seriously. I had a passport, and it expired a couple of years ago. I don't have the money to travel out of my state let alone the country, so I don't worry about a passport. Hopefully I will need one someday!

I am sure there are alot of places left to discover. Even if they may not be easy to get to. I don't know why most Americans don't own a passport. I am among those who do NOT have one. Perhaps like myself, many people are waiting to be able to afford to travel. And for some at this point the idea of leaving US soil is frightening. Many countries do not care for americans right now.

Yes! There are so many places left to discover. Even if it isn't necessarily new to the world, it will be new to me! I would love to go and see so many places. Chernobyl for one!! I think that would be awesome. As for Americans not owning passports, well. . . it is expensive to fly overseas and expensive to stay. My hubby and I just spent mega bucks on two trips to Britain to visit his family and we didn't have to pay for lodging!! The cost of travel might be coming down, but it's still out of reach for many.

I really love to travel and have been to almost 50 different countries so far. It is becoming impossible to discover anywhere new in the world. Even Angel Falls in the jungle of Venezuela was discovered. Places change quickly once they are discovered and over a period of time more and more travelers go there. Ted Hughes and Silvia Plath went on a honeymoon to a small Spanish fishing village that is now one of the biggest tourist resorts with lots of high rise buildings. It is Benidorm! I tend to go to at least five different places when I fly into an airport. There are small areas of the world that are not so touristy. I found Samoa to be short of tourists when I was there and on walks in New Zealand I didn't see many people. It is a shame that many Americans don't own passports. Many of them don't know what they are missing.

I hear there are still jungles and paths in New Guinea that haven't been ventured onto. I could be wrong though. And maybe most Americans down own a passport because we are still discovering America. For this, of course, we don't need a passport. Plus if we do want to travel overseas we can just get a passport in a few days or so. At least I did. Didn't cost any more either. Well, that's my two cents. Enjoy the rest of the week.

The world still has a lot to show us. Even if we have been there before, there is always something else. Mass tourism gives people the opportunity to visit many places but in a way it has also spoiled those same places a bit, but it's a big world, there are still many things out there to marvel at ;)

Try some cruises:- 1) THE BAHAMAS. 2) THE GREEK ISLANDS. 3) THE MEDITERRANEAN. 4) Pacific Islands Cruise. I have been on all of them. They are out of this world. I had a passport since I was 18 years old. I owned a British Passport (MALTA was a British Colony). I owned an English Passport, renewed at the FOREIGN OFFICE in London. I owned a MALTESE PASSPORT when Malta became independent. I now own an Australian Passport having been naturalised. I can have dual passports:- 1) Australian. 2) E U passport, now Malta is a member of the European Union.
