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?

I have spent time in these African countries working:

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

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.
