    my brother is a travel agent so he has several dozen countries under his belt by now

    i have only been to england, wales, northern ireland, japan, and usa (of course...gotta live somewhere)

    besides my home state of california, i have been to nevada, maryland, virginia, and hawaii (oahu and kauai)

    i stopped over in canada and maine en route to somewhere else but never got out of the airport so that doesn't count:p

    A better question might be 'Have you never travelled out side your home state/country' I'm always amazed at the number of people who don't travel.

    i live in a rural county just south of silicon valley and there are many people here who have never left the state

    and many, many people still live in the same town they were born in, myself included...and i know a lot of the locals among the 4,400 people

    when i first heard the jeff foxworthy jokes, i thought he was talking about my county...it all fit like a glove, people dating/lusting after cousins, lost dogs making the police log, etc :p ;) :D

    Something I find kind of weird is that most people I have met seem to be at either end of the travel spectrum in that they travel extensively or hardly at all. I have travelled quite a bit - often for work - and find this to be pretty consistent throughout the world.

    In answer to jefhatfield's original question - about 30 countries, all Canadian provinces and all US states except both Dakotas, New Mexico and Mississippi.

    Ha, that is good. I went to Fiji in 98 and was sad to see that they had 2, one in Nadi and the other in Suva. I've come to learn that they have a third now, near the University in Suva.

    But I have been to a place that doesn't have a McDonalds - I went to Greenland a few years ago, and they pretty much don't have much of anything. Very cool place though, if you get a chance to go, I would recommend it.

    I've never been off of US soil myself. I'd love to visit another country, though, as it's a great educational experience. Stereotypes tend to be blown away when you actually visit a given place.

    But I have been around the US a bit. I lived in the NYC area most of my life (and boy do I miss it). I've visited the Cape Cod area of MA for a number of years. I've been to Miami a few times. I've visited Phoenix, San Francisco (beautiful city, if not a bit weird), San Diego, and now I live in Los Angeles. I'd like to visit Seattle and Chicago at some point, too.

    Countries I'd like to visit are Egypt, Greece, some nation in southern Asia (not sure which one, perhaps Indonesia or Malaysia), Russia, and if they didn't kill Christians (not to mention other religious "dissidents"), China.

    Of course, I think that any American traveling overseas is taking his/her life into their hands right now, so international trips are just going to have to wait.

    If you let your fear rule you, you'll never see anything. It all depends on where you go, not all places are a problem, but there are some that you probably should avoid - just be smart. Oh, and be very careful if you go to Canada ;)
