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

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.
