Friday poll: How many countries have you visited?

Since it seems that a lot of Fodorites are very well-traveled, I thought it might be fun to find out exactly how traveled everyone is! So, how many countries have you visited? Flight layovers in a country doesn't count as "visited".

Ok, I'll start... my number is 7 - I'll get to add two more soon!

I've visited 8 countries, so far - Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy and Austria (plus 43 of the 50 United States).

My husband, B.J., has visited 17 total - all of the above (not including all the states), plus Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Jamaica

And there's so much more to see....Peace

I was a bit surprised when I started counting.

Europe: UK, France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic (11) (Granted, some of these are rather rushed trips)

Asia: Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong (part of China), Taiwan (5, if you count the mainland as separate from China)

North America: US (of course), Canada

So this gives 17-18.

I should start working on another continent.

Europe: UK (England, Wales and Scotland), France, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus, Vatican (if you count that), and Belgium (the bus passes through, and I did get off the bus to use the bathroom). That's about 14.

Asia: China (incl. Hong Kong & Macau), Taiwan (if you count that as seperate country), Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Israel, Jordan. That's 9.

Africa: Egypt. 1.

N. America: Canada, Mexico. 2.

So, that's about 26, not including the U.S.

StCirq,
I would say you could count the Bahamas as they became an independent nation in 1973. I included that one but didn't count Bermuda, U.S. & British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten/St. Martin, French Polynesia, or Hong Kong.

Didn't think to include Vatican City or the U.S. either
