Not as well traveled as some, but I'm fortunate to have traveled the following:
North America: USA (home!) and Canada
Europe: UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy
Africa: Tunisia
Asia: Taiwan, Japan

I have lofty aims to increase this number by at least 3 next year (it's called wishful thinking), but we'll see how my budget works!

I think it's 33 total. (More foreign travel than U.S. states)
North America: 5
Europe: 21
Africa: 2
Mid-East: 1
Far East: 3
Pacific: 1

Maybe it's cheating, but I counted the Vatican, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii separately. Also counted tiny Liechtenstein.

Wow...I am definitely not feeling as well travelled as I once thought--a lot of you have been everywhere. Great inspiration.

For me it is 15 countries in Europe, plus Mexico, Venezuela, and Canada. I live in the US, have probably seen 80% of it including my favorite, Hawaii. (Although for beach vacations Hawaii ties with Greece in my book, just harder for me to get to!)

God bless us all
20+ in my travelling career. This weekend I'm going to Netherlands/Belgium for a long weekend. In 2 weeks I go to Beijing. Then it's Bahamas for Christmas.
It's all leisure travel.
Keep on flying...it's good for the soul

UK, Germany, Slovakia, Netherlands, Italy (Sardinia only besides the airport). Give me a couple more months and I'll have added Italy properly, Austria, more of Germany, France, and hopefully Belgium and/or Spain and Portugal and/or Ireland. That makes 5 so far, up to 10 by June.
