    I thought this might be a fun little thread.

    What country are you from? And what countries have you lived in or visited? Weather it be for work or play. j

    Myself, I was very lucky to start right out of college working as a contractor for the USN at a very good company, after that I had several other jobs which involved lots of traveling. And owning my own business allows me to travel a lot as well, I really enjoy it, so I try to get to as many new places as I can.

    I was born in the United States of America, I have lived in France as well. Long enough to marry into a French family and drag my Frenchie back to the US of A. I might end up back their one day, who knows.

    In no real order

    Visited:

    Canada
    Mexico
    France
    Spain
    England
    Ireland
    Italy
    Germany
    Belgium
    Holland
    Denmark
    Austria
    Finland
    Norway
    Sweden
    Poland
    Croatia
    Russia
    Ukraine
    Brazil
    Columbia
    Niagara
    Chile
    Greece
    Portugal
    Japan
    China
    Malaysia
    Vietnam
    South Korea
    Thailand
    Romania
    Bulgaria
    Turkey
    Latvia
    Belarus
    Iceland
    India
    Singapore
    Israel
    South Africa

    That about does it. I consider myself well traveled. Though I am nearly 30, there will always be more to see, and I love to travel, its where lots of my money goes, I always take a business chance overeseas, sometimes just for the trip.

    The next country I am trying to crack is North Korea, though it is rather complicated.

    I live in the USA.

    Visited:
    - Canada
    - Mexico

    I'd be interested in visiting more countries but am not too keen on spending the money. Also my friends would just be interested in going to the bars and clubs in foreign countries. Which makes zero sense to me as I can get drunk locally. However, I can not see ancient structures, historical sites, art, &c that only exists in the countries I'd visit.
