I had the opportunity to go to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil when I was twelve years of age but I did not want to go.
Since I didn’t want to go my mother did not go either. She would not have gone to another country and left me behind.
The trip to Brazil may have been interesting, I don’t know, I really do not care. I have no regrets.
I was not one fascinated by travel.
I did not mind visiting other states as I have done yet when it came to visiting other countries I always declined.
I have family and friends who have explored overseas and I think their tours of alluring, exotic places are wonderful.
It is just not my thing.
I will stick to the United States as my family originated in Halifax, Virginia.
I come from southern folk. African American, Native American (Cherokee and Blackfoot Indian), and European (English) bloodline.
I prefer my native land.
I have relatives that are still located in different parts of Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina and within other states.
I have visited a friend in New Hampshire, relatives in South Carolina.
I have been to Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware and a few more states.
There are many beautiful countries and lovely cultures out there within our huge world.
A friend was telling me last week how she would like to visit and revisit a few countries in the near future.
I will keep my travel restricted to America, nevertheless.
