Introduction to #BaseballJourney

Introduction to #BaseballJourney

Along with running Baseball de World, I have run the website for the last couple of years. The site is my personal site where I talk baseball and document my baseball travels.

In early 2013, I will return home to the States and begin traveling. Over the next 8 months, I’ll begin to plan my trip and I’d love your feedback. I’ll be posting articles here under the heading #BaseballJourney which I will also use as a hash tag on Twitter.

The problem is I don’t know where to travel.

By the time I return home, I will have been away for 2 years and 3 years of the last 3.5. So, I am debating whether to do my traveling in the US or heading back overseas after a short time at home to see Europe.

Both have their pluses and minuses.

Europe Positives:
1.See new countries
2. Experience new cultures
3. See baseball in different environments
4. Might be cheaper than US Travel

USA Positives:
1. It’s home and I haven’t spent much time there the past few years
2. I’ve always dreamed of seeing every MLB stadium
3. I’d get to see my family and friends
4. I’d be back in a country that speaks English
5. I’d get to see a lot of the country I’ve never seen

I’m really torn, but as much as I want to see Europe I am leaning toward a USA trip. Simply because its what I have dreamed off and planned so many times over the last decade and now I have a chance to do it.

If I did a USA Trip, I would plan to see:
All 30 MLB Stadiums
Hall of Fame and other museums
Baseball on every level – little league, high school, college, minors, etc…
Misc. baseball sites like the Field of Dreams movie set
Plus there are national parks to see that I’ve never been to

The main problem with the USA trip is the cost. I don’t have a car anymore so I would need to buy one thatwould get me around the country. The other main costs I think would be housing. I can save money by staying in cheap hotels, hostels, camping, and doing some couch surfing as well.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
