5 currently (Italy, France, Germany, Canada, Mexico), plus two more this summer (England, Ireland).

Wow, I am pitiful! Everyone else is so well traveled here!

My husband has been to 13, BTW. He is a little less pitiful than me

16 countries so far, but I was only able to start traveling a lot about 10 years ago:

Italy
France
Germany
Belgium
Switzerland
Austria
Czech Republic
Vatican
Hungary
Slovakia
China
Hong Kong (as a British colony)
Taiwan
Japan
Mexico
Canada

I hope to add 2-5 more in the next two years - maybe Greece included. Having children has slowed the international travel a little. My goal is 50 countries, 50 states, and every continent. I have a list of about 20 musts for my lifetime. India, Australia, and South Africa are high on the list.

Not near as many as I'd like!

Other than my home country (US) Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, China (they were not reunited then!), Thailand, Indonesia (lived there two years) One night in Japan, which doesn't really count, New Zealand and in the next couple of months I'll be adding the Netherlands, Belgium, and possibly Germany.

36 and counting, for both business and pleasure. Did not realize there were that many until this question arose.

Hmmm, let's see...

North America: U.S. (where I've lived all my life), Canada, Mexico, Bahamas

Europe: Italy, Spain, France, Monaco, Vatican City, UK (England and Scotland only)

Africa: Egypt

Will soon add the U.S. and British Virgin Islands to the list (although I'm not sure either would count as visiting another country).

Only 11 countries??? Looks like I've got lots of traveling to do!

I am such a newbie! I didn't even get my passport til last month, so I have only visited one country (Ireland) 2 if you count conections (England), and 3 if you count Niagra Falls when I was 3 - that's technically Canada right? lol Now that my son is older my goal is to visit one country for every letter of the alphabet.
