Very good question tcl...it started me thinking about my life...

Born: Malaysia (does that count?)
Childhood: England
Junior College: Singapore
University: Australia (still there and have been for past 7 years!)

In Betweens:

Korea
Japan
China
Hong Kong
New Zealand
Ireland
Turkey
United States
Bali (not really Indonesia tho!!)
UAE

My Aussie friends keep forgetting I'm not entirely Aussie, my sister says I sound like Steve Irwin but people still ask if I'm British.

I'm going back to England next month and hope to add France on to that list.

As a matter a fact, I am aiming to add many more (hopefully!) as I'm still so young. Here's to everyone and their travels- Cheers!

From dropping out of college in my sophomore year for a year of backpacking throughout Europe in 1956-7 until now: 77 countries and still going strong (leaving next week for Romania and Bulgaria). But I'm not just collecting countries as I have made 9 visits to France, for example. Although I have thought about it, I have no explanation as to where this wanderlust comes from. Reading too many National Geographic magazines as a kid, perhaps!

Wow. You all are what I aspire to! It's wonderful to think we can all benefit from the knowledge of such a breadth of experience. As for me, I'm just starting out...

UK & Italy so far in Europe, Bermuda, Bahamas, Grenada, Mayreau, Bequia, Carriacou, St. Vincent, Canada, USVI and 22 out of the 50 States in the US.

I've got a long way to go! Luckily I'm only 32!
