If you count the EU as France, Germany, Italy, etc... I have been in over 30 countries in Europe and Asia, and I have also been in USA/Canada.

What qualifies as "been to"? Stop overs? Lived there for X days/months?

I wouldn't count stopovers/layovers, border runs, cruises and other things that are too touristy, etc. If you've been there for at least a day, got a stamp in your passport, and left the airport I think that's a good cutoff point for where it should count.

1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Not counting one's home country, of course. I changed the title to specify foreign countries.

It was obvious before IMO, but in the win column for me now. People travel.

I've been to six countries.

OK, gents, pony up.


Too many....way too many...

I think the rational position is to remember who the guy might be behind the computer that is doing the typing.

Going overseas is about getting away from a toxic culture and obesity. It doesn't remove biological factors. There are gringos that go overseas that repulse women too. Lack of social skills, fat, ugly, old looking for young, etc.
