I haven't compiled my country count yet, but I'm sure it's much more modest. I'm the "like it once, return again and again" type of traveler. Unless I'm on a cruise, and it's an "in and out of ports-of-call experience," I like to spend anywhere from several days to a month getting to know an area in depth.
Some of the destinations Clint mentioned are familiar and brought back good memories; particularly the charming towns of Cape Cod, the impressive old walled city of Carcassonne, and coming soon, the beaches of Punta Del Este and European sophistication of Montevideo, Uruguay.
Yet while I've missed the splendor of Angor Wat, Cambodia, I've been fortunate to have toured the ruins of the ancient Thai capital in Sukhothai and the UNESCO World Heritage site of the second Siamese capital of Ayutthaya.
Wadi Rum and Petra in Jordan have also escaped my travels so far, but I've compensated somewhat by thorough explorations of Ephesus and Cappadocia in Turkey.
Thanks go to Travel Channel's Kwin Mosby for his post featuring Clint Johnston, author of 'The Art of Travel Hacking.' Since there are, however, nearly two hundred countries in the world, Clint still has a wealth of travel adventures ahead of him. I hope that he and his wife, Tori, will have many more memorable journeys. http://blog.travelchannel.com/the-traveling-type/...
"If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times."
At my age, if I've said it once, I've probably said it twice! That's why I need a house that's smarter than I am.

"The best cure for an obsession is to find another one!"
Sounds logical. Once the Urban Oasis 2014 winner is revealed, move on to Urban Oasis 2015!

"Better late than never."
Whoever came up with that one obviously never had to wait for a Dream Home reveal.

You've taken it from the implausible to the very likely! I can't wait to see the winner's surprise video and follow-up interview. ^_^
(Well, not a REAL raft mind you, but in the sense of a whole lot of commitments!)
Maybe the eventual winner of the Blog Cabin will get to experience this amazing North Pole light show next year and send along some photos -- or a video.
On the subject, do you think we could get Laurie March of 'The House Counselor' and Blog Cabin fame to show up at the festival of lights this coming December as our proxy?
