10 Year Blogiversary!

Happy 10 Year Blogiversary to Museum Trekker! What an amazing trek it has been. It's hard to believe all of the incredible places my readers and I have journeyed to in such a short amount of time.
I don't think it's possible to count up the exact number of places I've traveled to but I would estimate that I've gone to more than one hundred museums, World Heritage sites and historical landmarks in roughly 32 U.S. states and territories and nearly two dozen countries. It's been such an inspiring, fun and exciting experience. Some times have been scary and some times have been sad but it has mostly been a joy and a privilege and it has definitely never been boring. Thank you to all my readers who have traveled along with me all of these years!
