The Quests

Questing is working towards a travel goal of visiting a particular set of places, usually one that involves “visiting all the __.”

That blank line can be just about anything—whether that’s going to all the National Parks, or the MLB ballparks, or getting to 100 Countries, or even just stopping by every craft brewery in your city. Or something else entirely.

Quests are a great way to inspire more travel and adventure in your life. I love them because they often force me to go to places I wouldn’t have otherwise experienced, and they help structure and narrow my trip planning, too.

→ Here’s a mini-guide to Questing that describes it all in more detail.

Finding Your Quest
