Occasionally I will fantasize about traveling to somewhere far from here.
Sometimes as a result of these fantasies I sit on my PC at night and put various destinations into expedia and find out stuff about how I might get there - which airports I would go through, how much time I would spend getting there, how much it might cost and so forth. I have also noticed it that if I type in the “going to” box a word like “Iraq” or “Pyongyang”, expedia cannot find any airports.
Which leads to a hypothetical question:
I am Joe Citizen from Springfield USA. I have no criminal record, no disabilities, good health, etc. I have no insider information, no special clearance, no official badges or ID. I have never served in the military nor do I know anyone who does. I run into a good bit of money and want to spend it traveling. I want to get in my car, drive to the airport and get to other countries. I’m leaving next week. Money is no object as far as paying airfare, accommodations, food and expenses, et cetera. I have no obligation to home or work life. I can use publicly available cars, planes, trains, subways, ships, ferries, and anything else that I don’t need some special permission to use.
To what other countries can I not easily travel?
