Nowhere near 30. Probably 15 or so.

I have visited Syria though - I reckon that doubles my score, so now I'm on a par with desperado.

I make it 28. It was interesting to experience other cultures in places like Colombia, Kuwait, Israel and China

64 - a lot of Scotland football trips and a couple cruises and the number builds up. There is an app called ‘been’ which is handy to record them. Bairn is 2 years 2 months old and he’s been to 12 already (not that he will remember - and no football trips yet).

According to this site, I have visited 54...

https://traveltip.org/countries_visited.php

I could likely add three or four island nations I have been to that are not on the website (e.g. Netherland Antilles, St Helena, Ascension Island), but if asked in future I think I will say, "Around about 60..."

Using OzPar's link, I have visited 25 (not counting change of flights in the Middle East).

Not bad when you consider that some of my siblings would have a score of 2.

29 for me. Fascinating getting out and seeing the world and different cultures. Started taking running stuff when i travel and good way to see a bit more of places than normally would or things wouldnt pick up sat on a tour bus etc.

Running on frozen lakes in Kazakhstan and the shoes on the danube bank in Budapest particularly memorable

35 without any cruising.😃

Not much in the Southern Hemisphere as it happens.

I count the U.K. as one country!

I understand why it’s interesting to see which countries you have visited, but it’s also a bit odd. One night in New York between flights and you colour in the whole of the USA.

I can't believe Despo that you didn't count the UK as being separate countries.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

Can’t say I would ever count it if I’ve never left the airport as not really experiencing anything of the culture other than generic duty free shops. No idea how many that would add on.

Another good app is called "Countries been" and it allows you to download county maps and things for different countries.

For me:
Scotland
N. Ireland
Rep. Ireland
England
Iceland
Denmark
Sweden
Norway
Estonia
Germany
Austria
France
Belgium
Netherlands
Poland
Czech
Italy
Greece
Cyprus
Spain (Tenerife)
USA (23 states because my dad is a bit obsessed!)
Canada
UAE
Taiwan
Hong Kong
Macau
Japan (13 prefectures because the mrs is Japanese)
South Korea
Australia (3 states)
New Zealand

So 30 so far which aint bad at 27. Next places will be: Ukraine, Slovenia, Nepal, Philippines and Peru. Need to get a proper look at Finland too with the number of times I've passed through the airport!
