There are 196 countries in this world ours and for most of us we are citizens of only one. That leaves 195 countries left for you to discover. For some people landing at the airport, a taxi to their hotel and roaming around though the popular attractions of the area is their idea of "seeing" a country. For others, including this author, that is far from enough. We want to experience the grit, the true heart of a country. We want to mingle with the locals, meet fellow travelers, share stories and live our travels.
