For my 16th birthday, my father sent me a broad. I was very lucky, I was only expecting a bicycle.

I was a broad a couple of times. English pantomime requires cross dressing of actors/actresses. Does that count? I have also been overseas many times.

I can't speak for the majority of people in either the United States or here in Canada, but I'm a traveler at heart, Europe once and counting (loved it!) and many trips to New England to visit relatives. It's great being a Canadian traveling overseas!

The first few posts on this thread didn't contain many serious replies, so I didn't much look at it until now. Since there are now some genuine answers, sure I'll bite. I think that there have been threads like this before, but I don't remember enough details to locate one.

I have been to Europe 21 times, to Mexico, Canada, Nassau, Bermuda and across the Pacific once.

In chronological order, as best I can remember:

Canada, Bahamas, Italy, Vatican City, Greece, Yugoslavia (now Serbia and Slovenia), Switzerland, France, England, Mexico, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Andorra, Monaco, Portugal, Bermuda, Austria, Liechtenstein, Denmark, Japan, Malaysia, Australia, Ireland

26. 19 of them in Europe.

Still eager to add Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Wales, Scotland and then who knows - - Scandinavia? further east? no doubt a number of repeats along the way.

Best wishes,

Rex

I'm an American. Have been to Europe 3 times visiting: Netherlands, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Belgium, & Switzerland. Lived/worked in Luxembourg for a summer. Also Canada, Mexico, various islands in the Caribbean. UK/Ireland--5 times since marrying a Brit with Irish parents (husabnd and son have dual citizenship). Can't wait to go again. Goals: Italy, Spain, Scotland. Have to say my husband has travelled to far more countries with more variety that I have--Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Greece, Turkey, N. Ireland, many in S. America and he has also been to more US states!

Ten times going on eleven. British Isles on my first trip in 1979, with subsequent trips to France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. I've enjoyed all those countries but France & Italy are, by far, my favorites.

My guess is that most Americans have been abroad at least once. And remember, you don't need a passport to go to Canada, Mexico, and most places in the Caribbean. So far, I have been to Canada, Jamaica (twice so far and a personal goal is to visit at least once a year) and Europe. In Europe, I have only been to Switzerland and Italy, though we are going to Germany, Austria and Switzerland for several weeks this summer. I agree that the expense for overseas travel is somewhat prohibitive, but once you go, it is really hard not to go back. I can't wait and am very grateful for the advice I have received on this forum.

My specialty is Germany and Switzerland. Being from a German background and all, I have an interest in the German peoples!

Favorite city in Germany is Munich.

Favorite region of Switzerland: Berneese Oberland

I was thinking of being a broad, but then they brought out that big knife and I changed my mind.

The question was how many of you have been abroad. Why did people start listing all the places they went in detail? Many of you people seem obessed with proving yourselves. It is like I got 99 trips and look how much many countries I saw! Are you the same people who go bragging about their kids' SAT scores/colleges and sports scores, your net worth,etc. It is not just the Americans doing it--the non-Americans seem to have started it here. I find it pathetic!

Linda, most Americans have never been outside of this country. This was reported in AAA Travel Magazine a few years ago.

I have been watching this board for a long time. It seems to me that many of the posters here have never been abroad and are mental midgets playing games.

Real travelers don't post some of the nonsensical, inane topics that that appear hear at Fodor.com. I suspect people come here from the US Travel Board and post this garbage because they are jealous that others have traveled to Europe and they have not.

I am the Handmaiden of Fodor, and I have spoken. Heed my words.

That you are so insanely jealous and life dysphoric.

That all you can think to do here is attack what you wish you were.

Normal.

"Handmaiden"--(Ms. Easier) with a name like that, I bet your idea of "several years" ago was when the corvair was popular. Get some recent data with dates and I will then look it over and let you know if it is valid.

I happen to know a travel-freak who goes out of the country about 8-10 times a year who posts the most absurd troll on here. He is really good at it! So much for your alleged knowledge.
