Even though I have a U.S. tourist visa, I haven't been there since 2001. Why? Because I haven't needed to. Most of the time since I moved to Europe my trips to the other side of the Atlantic have been to Mexico, and I haven't needed to make a stopover in the US on my way there in a very long time.
I may have wanted to go there on holiday again (I'm still missing Washington, D.C. and the Southwest), but given that there is only a limited amount of holidays you have, I'd rather spend it with my family. Maybe if they go somewhere there in the summer, we might decide to meet there instead. I wonder how has the place changed?
