How many countries, other than the one you're currently living in, have you visited or lived in?

Asked by prescottman2008 (780points) June 12th, 2010

When I say “lived in” I mean something longer than the typical 2 week vacation. As far as “visited” that doesn’t include lay-overs at an airport.

I went to Canada for about a week for a wedding. I loved it up there (we were near Toronto). I’ve never lived in another country, but I’m hoping my husband will be stationed in another country for his next duty location so that we can get that opportunity.

I visited Australia for 3 weeks. I want to go back. It was beautiful there.

Fourteen (and Antarctica) as an adult, four as a child. I was a Navy brat who became an Army officer.

Lived in – none
Visited – Canada, USA, Netherlands, Spain, Czech Republic.

The list would be much bigger if I had more money. Also, I would love to live in Spain.

I haven’t lived anywhere other than England but I have visited Germany, France, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Holland and America.

Edit: Forgot to add Wales and Scotland seeing as they are technically other countries.

Have visited about 45 countries so far and each one (some much more than others) makes me appreciate home.

Three. France, where I was born, England, but not for very long at all, and now Canada.

I’ve visited most of the European countries as well the British Virgin Islands. I have visited the Bahamas and Mexico. I have never lived anywhere other than the USA; I don’t expect that to change. I would like to visit Canada, Greece, Scotland, and Scandinavia. If I never do, that will be OK too. I’ve yet to visit all of the U.S. states, but I’ve seen a lot of them and spent time in the U.S. Virgins..

I have driven across the border of Mexico several times and done shopping in the border towns of Cuidad Juarez and Tijuana, and I have spent a week-end in Windsor, Canada. That is the extent of my experience out of the U.S.
