In response to my my previous thread, I received a lot of support for the idea and inspired others to complete similar challenges. Unfortunately, after making a lot of progress with the challenge, I became quite busy with other aspects of life and no longer was actively working towards completing my challenge. However, I today have decided to continue my challenge where I left off!
Incase you are unaware, from my previous thread:
I recently had an idea come to mind. I will be attempting to control an airport in every country of the world. As I work to complete this huge task, I will be tracking my progress here with the map below, as well as updating you all with new posts as I go! I also want to provide a fact about the country to encourage others to come to try a flight in the area!
Note: Most major territories/autonomous regions will be controlled separately from their mother country, but this will always be noted for informational purposes.
Why am I doing this?
Good question. It all started at 11 PM on a Friday night, and like all ideas created at 11 PM on a Friday night, I will probably live to regret this.
More seriously, though–I want to experience the diversity of what every country of the world has to offer. This will not be an easy task but I’ll certainly try my best!
Here is the most recent progress report from the previous thread:
Quests don’t start at 11pm now, do they?
Apologies, my dear friend.
You mentioned you were beginning a quest. Therefore, I checked when quests typically begin at. You mentioned 11pm, and I checked some other individuals who began quests, and they were at different times. I mean, Indiana Jones didn’t start his quest for the Holy Grail until what looks like dark. He probably had an idea as well.
In all seriousness though, I am glad to see you are bringing back your quest! Can’t wait to see these beautiful countries around the world. I would personally recommend Sardinia, Italy.
Thanks for the good luck wish! I never said that all ideas for quests are created at 11 PM haha, just that most ideas that are created at 11 PM on Friday nights are bad ones.
