Author and semi-retired Social Studies teacher Rufus McGaugh has been everywhere from Antarctica to Australia. In his newly released book, “Longitude and Latitude with Attitude: One Man’s Quest to See the Entire World,” McGaugh shares tales from his decades of travelling.  He says it’s impossible to choose his favorite country —seeing as he’s been to 252 countries and territories over the past 49 years— but he says he tends to enjoy those with an abundance of natural beauty.
