USA (native - maybe 30 states?)
Canada (5x)
Mexico (8x leaving Saturday to go again)
England
France (3x)
Spain
Switzerland and Italy (but less than a day in each)
Austria (only 24 hours)
Moldova
Indonesia
Australia (2x)
Japan

I'd really like to go to Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden. And Eastern Canada -- Nova Scotia and PEI. And South America somewhere, but I'm not sure what part. And I'd like a better look at both Switzerland and Austria. And honestly, there aren't many places I'd turn down... ;)

47 countries so far. One of my goals is to have visited more countries than I am years old.

Currently live in the US, been to most of Western and Eastern Europe, much of Asia, some of Africa, a little of Latin America, most of North America, a lot of the Carribean countries.

Going to Chile, Argentina, Peru, Equador and Antarctica next year. Not sure Antarctica is a country, but I'm counting it.

LOL - don't feel bad. I couldn't figure out who the Bahamas belonged to, so I left it out. :)

I think we're going to hit Quito and the Amazon. And then there's some resort in Peru, and I'm not sure what the plan is for Colombia at the moment...
12/30/2005 01:56:14 AM · #23
Cool...have fun! Try to hit the colonial part of Quito, if you get a chance...that's where you'll find the old treasures. The new part of Quito has the party spots. :) Enjoy the Andes and the Amazon!

This is making me think backwards a LONG ways...

I have been to every state in the union except (very sadly) Alaska. So, 49 states.

I have been to Canada, just about all of it but the Northwest Territories.

Mexico, especially Baja California, and including the mexican Pacific coast as far down as Puerto Vallarta and also including the (far offshore) Revillagigedo islands and Clipperton island. East coast of mexico not at all, Guadalajara and Ciudad Mexico, Barancas de tarahumnaras (Mexico's Grand Canyon).

No Central America, no South America.

Lots of Europe: lived for 4 years in Geneva, travelled in all the "usual countries" but none of the Adriatic area. None of what was then "Eastern Europe" and inacessible. Off the top of my head, Switzerland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Liechenstein, Monaco, France, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Italy. I'm sure I'mmissing some.

The Caribbean fairly extensively.

Nothing in the far east or near east, nothing south of the equator.

That's off the top of my head...

Robt.
