I have traveled all of 27% of the US and I've never been out of the country. I've, technically, been on four flights, but it was all for one trip. I went like this: Little Rock -> Dallas/Fort Worth -> Portland, Oregon -> Dallas/Fort Worth -> Little Rock. My trip to Portland is also the only reason I've been to Washington--my friends and I drove up to Seattle.

I guess this makes me woefully untraveled and unworldly. Meh. Of course, I really don't like travel all that much. Mostly because I get motion sickness, but also because it's stressful. I've never understood the notion that, in order to relax, one must go through the hassle of planning a trip, packing for that trip, traveling (by car, train, bus, plane, whatever) to their destination, deal with checking into a hotel (which is annoying even when you have reservations), getting lost in an unfamiliar location (it's inevitable, really), sleeping in a bed that isn't your own, having "hospitality" personnel you don't know cleaning your room (and thus riffling through your stuff), and then having to re-pack your luggage (which is invariably more difficult that packing it was because you have picked up something new somewhere), traveling again, unpacking and doing all the laundry from your trip. Personally, I'd rather lounge around the house with a good book or good friends and be done with it.

(And, yes, the lazy cat in the icon is one of my cats. His name is Zephyr and he likes laying around, especially in front of the fireplace.)
