Connie G (connie_g) | 876 comments I'm hoping to finish up my 80 countries this year, my third year of the challenge circumnavigating. I'm also doing the USA Roadtrip challenge.

I choose the rogue traveler for this year's challenge since I'm planning to read a lot of books set in one foreign country, Canada.
