I have 3 years and 22 states left.

I’m Anastasia.

A few years ago I decided that even though I was young, I hadn’t seen nearly enough of the world. I knew that once I had to actually become an adult, it would be harder to find the time to travel. I also decided that I should see and understand America before I try to understand the rest of the world, since, you know, I live here.

And so, I decided I was going to visit all 50 states before I turn 25.

Now I have a world-wide scratch-off map in my living room and a countrywide magnet pin map in my bedroom, and I’m working hard to fill them.

This blog is my way of tracking my progress, journaling my experiences, and sharing with the world. I will post blogs for every country, state, and city I visit and will include tips and tricks for your visit.

Enjoy your stay!
