Title: How well travelled are you?
Post by: zoony on June 01, 2008, 09:25:25 am
There seem to be a few globetrotters who post on this site, so i was wondering just how many different countries you've visited apart from your own? My total is a paltry 3, Wales, France and Spain, and i've never even been on an aeroplane yet. How many countries have you visited then?

If Wales counts then so does Scotland!! Anyway, quite a few:

Iceland
Sweden
Denmark
Holland
Belgium
Luxembourg
France
Spain
Italy
Greece
Cyprus
Malta
Turkey
Czech Republic
Austria
Germany
Kazakstan
Israel
Saudi

I have spent time in these African countries working:
Libya
Nigeria
Ghana
Ivory Coast
Kenya
Zimbabwe
South Africa
Angola

And have passed through alot of others.

I also flew into and straight out of Iraq after unloading, 4 years ago.

USA - many places.

I haven't got to the Far East or Aus yet.

Most of this travel has been through work but in most cases I have been able to get out and about and usualy stayed in a place for at least a week, often returning for a second, or many more visits. That's the beauty of working for an airline.

If you can count Wales, I can count England I suppose.

England
France
Germany
Italy
Austria
Switzerland
Spain
Greece
Sweden
Barbados
USA
Canada


I don't consider myself particularly well-travelled. Some of those were very brief visits related to work (3 nights in Germany, 2 nights in Sweden, 1 in Spain where I didn't even leave Madrid airport) and all of the other European ones were quite some time ago. I've been to the USA /Canada six times though.

I was lucky enough to work for a firm that asked me to go abroad a fair bit, so I've been to New York & San Francisco (USA), Geneva (Switzerland), Frankfurt (Germany), Tokyo (Japan), Hong Kong. All top hotels or plush apartments, all paid for by the firm  :)

In addition, on holiday I've been to:

Spain
France
Scotland
Finland
Hong Kong
USA (Boston & NY)
Italy
Greece

The only country I've not seen yet that I'd really like go to is Australia.

I checked what those who travel a lot think is ok to count here (http://mosttraveledpeople.com/_mtpprintmasterlist1.cfm). Apparently they call it "locations", and according to the list there are 673 locations in the world that you can visit. I checked my list and made it to 34 locations, but that's it. I think I mentioned all of 'my' 34 locations already in my previous post.

I wonder what would happen if the rules were slightly changed?

Take out all of the city breaks i.e. Prague instead of Czech Republic, or Paris instead of France. And also take out the football trips to one city for a match.

So where does that leave us now? And you can discount the business trips to an individual city for a couple of days.

Oh, and forget the rubbish of England / Scotland / Wales / Northern Ireland etc. Really!

Places I'd like to go but haven't: in Europe, Slovenia looks beautiful, and I've always been discouraged from Scandanavia due to the cost - Iceland looks cheaper right now though! Elsewhere, I've always fancied seeing the Himalayas, maybe Mexico and Cuba too.

There seem to be a few globetrotters who post on this site, so i was wondering just how many different countries you've visited apart from your own? My total is a paltry 3, Wales, France and Spain, and i've never even been on an aeroplane yet. How many countries have you visited then?


Well it looks like I'm going to Holland! Our engineering manager has asked me to go with him to Nijmegen to the Hyster forklift truck factory next month as we need a new truck for our machine, and he wants me to try them out. I've just started filling in my passport application as I only had a 12 month one back in 1987 when I went to Spain. Look out Holland, the Zoonster is coming!  :).

I think so mate, and if so it will be my first time! I spoke to Mark, the bloke I'll be going with, on saturday. He said he'd have more info this week, but it would probably be during the first week of july. Better hope I get my passport before then then!

I was lucky enough to work for a firm that asked me to go abroad a fair bit, so I've been to New York & San Francisco (USA), Geneva (Switzerland), Frankfurt (Germany), Tokyo (Japan), Hong Kong. All top hotels or plush apartments, all paid for by the firm  :)

In addition, on holiday I've been to:

Spain
France
Scotland
Finland
Hong Kong
USA (Boston & NY)
Italy
Greece

The only country I've not seen yet that I'd really like go to is Australia.

Nice to see this thread still going. In the last 11 years I've added a few Caribbean countries, Croatia, Montenegro and, last weekend, Belgium.

Odd that I didn't include Wales in the above list, I saw Rush there in '81 and I've been a few times in the last few years. I cycled there and back in 2017. I recall though that I didn't actually realise that I was in Wales when I visited Deesside in '81. Still, and destined to remain, the only country, at least in the ceremonial sense, other than England where I've seen Rush.

England and Wales aren't real countries anyway but that's another discussion.

I've been in a couple of European cities in the past 2 months and now I'm in Germany. Beautiful country indeed! You can feel the European standarts everywhere and people are always willing to help. The other day I was checking the map and a girl came and said: ''Are you looking for something?'' :) I started to think maybe it would be cool to have a property in Germany (https://tranio.com/germany/) one day. It's a nice country to live in.
