I don't have interest in countries that will look similar to others. i.e. why visit Iraq if its not too different from Iran. Mississippi and Alabama, same difference. Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, etc. I've been to Costa Rica so I have no desire to see Nicaragua or Panama. So when I say I want to see it all, these are the shortcuts I plan to do in order to see as much as possible. I assume most people who want to travel the world are somewhat similar.
