Hawaii looks fantastic! I know you guys loved that trip.
Pretty soon it will be easier for you to list the places you haven't been than the places you have been. I hope your travel log on Afghanistan was accepted by that site(magazine?).
Jsem zvědav, jak by to vypadalo, kdybych byl přivolávačem deště. Jak by to vypadalo, kdybych uměl přivolat déšt'?
Mám pocit ale, že se to bohužel nikdy nedozvím.

And no, it is not and soon will not be easier to list countries I have not visited. So far I visited 57 I think, this year I plan to see Mexico (but I have already been there) and Guatemala, and then China. Hopefully some third country I have never been before (hot candidates - Portugal, Russia, Iran). And I have already been to Japan this year. So hopefully I reach 60 this year.

Unless I go overland down to South Africa, it will now be quite hard to add more and more countries.

I have mid term goal - visit North Korea, and long term goal - visit all the countries of the world. As one cleaver man once said - I set this goal not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

This winter is packed with cheap rates of tickets from around CZ to the US. About 400 USD return seems to be new "normal".

I decided advance my plans for 2016, so I am going to Seattle this summer. One week only, no more time to spend. Yet I am looking forward to it. Motels, 5FT deep pools, Tacos tasting way better than those down there in Mexico, cheap gas, wide roads with no traffic on them... Can't wait.
