Around 30 and I haven't even made a dent on what is on the globe! So many places, and so little time.

Hi. I'm new to the board, so I thought I'd start my first post here. Countries I've been to: Ireland, England, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany (lived there 5 years as a kid - read that as Army brat), Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Greece (including the islands of Paros, Delos, and Mykonos), Turkey, and Egypt. Some countries I've visited more than once. Planning on going to Paris this September with my sister, so I'm researching some stuff on the boards here.

Coo;camden,

Loved your addition of Texas to the list! Living here, I can clearly see why you could list it--it is clearly to its own.

TopDogJoan, you have achieved my goal in life -- all 7 continents.

So far I've lived in 3 countries (including the U.S.)and visited 19 countries on 3 continents. I'll add the 4th this summer when I go to Africa. I think my problem is that I keep going back to Europe, even repeating countries, which I'm doing, yet again, this spring.

I've also traveled throughout the United States. I can't consider myself a world traveler if I don't know my own country.

coolcamden, are you by any chance a Texan?

Safe travels to all.
