According to the UN, there are 193 countries (with some debate). How many have you been to and which ones (please don't include holdings of other countries...for example, the Cayman Islands are not a country)? For a good reference see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states:

I have a pathetic number (7):

Canada
USA
Honduras
Belize
Mexico
Sweden
United Kingdom

Later this year I will be adding:
Jamaica
Haiti
Bahamas
Brazil
Argentina
Uruguay
and possibly Paraguay...maybe a couple more Caribbean nations if I can toss in another cruise.

So the Cayman Islands aren't a country? What would you count it as, England? The Bahamas are a commonwealth btw...

I wouldn't considered Cayman Islands as anything....just an island...but English holding.
The Bahamas is/are recognized as a country (as are places like Canada, Australia, etc.) Technically called a commonwealth realm, but still recognized by the UN as a country:

A Commonwealth realm is a sovereign state within the Commonwealth of Nations that has Elizabeth II as its monarch.[1] The sixteen current realms have a combined land area of 18.8 million km² (7.3 million mi², excluding Antarctic claims), and a population of 132 million;[2] all but about two million live in the six most populous states, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and Jamaica.

This is not counting countries I've been at an airport in, since the flight to Japan included two layovers in other countries.

WOW....born to shop....that is a lot of countries!!!!
I know... :blush:
I have been very lucky to be able to travel so much. Actually I travelled a lot with my mother when I was younger (am 25 now).
But you know, when you think that there are 193 countries in the world, I haven't been to that many... There are actually so many places I would love to go! Never been to South America or Africa (besides Northern Africa but I think that's very different from the rest of the continent).
I may add Iceland to my list of countries later this year, however, we're still deciding between that and Greece!

digby: You might be surprised! Most of C. America are independent countries. It's the Caribbean islands that are often not.

annanas: That is an impressive list!!!

born to shop: I know what you mean! I have this app on facebook and it says that I have visited 2% of the world :sad:

I"m so envious of those of you who have extensively travelled Europe or Asia!
