I never went oustide England (unless you count Wales) until I was about 24-25?! The first time was a last minute decision as a friend was going to visit me but couldn't make it, so I booked a plane ticket and went to Stockholm to see her the next day!

 

Imagine this won't compare to most people here, but:

 

Wales

Scotland

Sweden

Spain

France (for about 10 minutes, we just nipped across the border so I could say I've been there)

Andorra

USA (Boston, Worcester & NY)

Malta

Italy

Cyprus

Egypt

Heehee... Me, too, when we were in Basil, Switzerland. I forgot to list it. Does that count?

 

We were trying to get into a discothèque, but, unfortunately, we did "not have ze correcte motif!" Our punk-ass/hiphop clothes were too ratty and road-travelled for mister snotty disco man. Heheh. :D

 

Oh, yeah, we were high as kites, too, the lot of us. :freak:

England (London, Newcastle, Liverpool)

Wales

Italy (Pisa, Firenze, Perugia)

Germany (Munchen, Freiberg)

I've been only mainly around the US. Most states except Hawaii, and extreme northern New England.

 

Canada...the northwest (B.C. and Yukon) and Ontario.

 

The Mexican Yucatan Peninsula.

 

That's about it. But I've had fun in my limited travels so far.

I've been around a little. Let's see:

 

USA = all states except Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.

 

Canada: Just Ontario, but I have been to Toronto. Nice city.

 

And I spent 8 months on the island of Guam. (Which is a US territory, so other than Canada, I suppose I've never really been out of the country.)

 

I said just a bit, didn't I? :D

The company I am indirectly working for is based in Basel, so hopefully I'll get over there at some point!! You don't work for an agrochemicals company do you???

Ah, just checking as I'd never heard of the place before I worked here :)

 

I've been to Spain a few times as I have friends there, could count Barcelona as a seperate country as many of them consider it Basque! :P

In years past, (IIRC)

 

Russia

China

Koreas

New Zealand

Vietam

Iceland

Greenland

Cuba

Iran, Iraq

Jordan

Syria

 

are the places I can recall not having been to

 

It's much easier than listing where I've been, which includes all of Central America, every US state and Canadian province, every Caribbean state (except Cuba), most of South America, a bunch of African states (including Reunion Is, Mauritius Is and Madagascar)...most of Europe and the dark side of the loon.

Hey Mon!

 

Never been there, but with over 100k frequent flier miles in ONE of my airline awards accounts (plus being an "elite" member on the top three US airline, plus being a elite member of the "oneworld" alliance of airlines), and with gold status with Priority Clubs (Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza etc)...and with Hertz Gold status...you figure, I could take the time out to check it out, no? :cool:

 

There are a few other countries I have not been to (not worthy of mention), but it is true, that if I tried to recall all the countries I've been to, that list would be very incomplete.

 

In 1996 when I was applying for US citizenship, there was a question about listing the times one had been out of the country, and the duration.

 

IIRC, I had clocked 125 trips outside of the USA since Jan 1990-Apr 1996 Some trips covered multiple CONTINENTS.
