Been There

More than a “been there, done that” experience

“Been there, done that” as the saying goes. This ages-old idiom is often used, typically with apathy and boredom (plus probably a slight eyeroll), to prove one’s superiority of experience. However, when starting the “Been There” blog, I wanted to flip this phrase on its head, instead using it to induce a positive attitude toward sharing experiences.

Having “been there”, I’m thrilled to share my knowledge with others on the beautiful and unique places that fill our planet. Therefore, the focus of this blog is to excite readers and travelers to go where I have been with an sense of eagerness and a yearning for new adventure.
