VeeDub I like the road trip. Tempting. All 48 in one OCI.

My international travel is pretty limited. Lots of repeat trips, but I have been to England, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the Canary Islands, France, Belgium, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Venezuela, Mexico, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Australia. Somehow never been to Italy, although I booked it twice. And instead of going to India a few years ago I went to Florida. Not sure about that.

I remember going to a client meeting in Bangkok and on the flight in I realized I didn't have any hotel info. I was so used to being met by a driver that I had not bothered to find out where the meeting was. I just had to hope there was a guy with a sign at arrivals. There was.

I've been to 40 states and every province in Canada except the Yukon and Northwest Territories. In fact I travelled to all the province in 2003 alone. I travel a lot in Canada for work.

Missing out on the most of the northeast. 38 states completed. And not much of a "World" traveler. Only North America completed. Never been off this continent.

TDI(s): Gone...

Just got back from two weeks driving in Scotland (alas no TDI this time). Last October, I drove a Polo 1.2 TDI (3-cyl) in Italy. Several trips to the UK driving VAG products (Mk VI Golf TSI, Seat Altea 2.0 TDI, B5.5 Passat TDI with a proper transmission… manual). I've also driven gassers and diesels in South Korea (some kind of Korean diesel SUV thingy… it was 19 years ago so I forget). Every Canadian province in either my TDI or rentals. A bit in Brazil. Was driven around Chile. Most exotic was driving the diesel thing in S. Korea. Most terrifying: a toss-up between Brazil and Italy. Most fun, as always, the UK is hard to beat: disciplined drivers, great winding roads, single-track B-roads, and the challenge of driving a manual on the left while shifting with the left hand. I feel safer driving on the left in the UK than driving on the right in Italy. In two weeks and 1000 miles in Scotland over the past two weeks, we heard a horn blown exactly once, for a driver dozing at a traffic light when it turned green.

Years ago I came across a Car Magazines trip or article about that trip:
Shortest trip and fastest time to hit all LOWER States...If I remember it was something around 3 Days with 2 Drivers.

My family made our 30 day road trip in our Jetta TDI from Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland back into Germany in December. It was an awesome trip. Now we are stuck in lower Alabama.

We've put 75,000 miles on it in three years. Now we are looking to get rid of the Jeep and get a Q7. It will be a 100% diesel family.

Well I didn't end up adding any more states on my recent trip, so I'll just have to plan another one!

You have been to all 48 states, and a ton of countries.! Nice !

Your international travels are not modest at all.
