    Just a poll to see how well travelled MSE people are

    Just indicate how many countries you have visited.

    Follow UN list of countries without being pedantic.

    Russia and Vatican City are both considered as one country each.

    Damn, just short of the 41-100 category, even counting countries which no longer exist

    More travel geekery - how many languages do you know how to say "thank you" in (without looking it up)? Anyone beat 20

    Well they aren't on the list from the UN or the US State department - or the wikipedia list of sovereign states -

    I got bored at 26, but I was a Merchant Seaman and also had 12 years Army Service. I have also holidayed in many European countries and once (unforgettably) in Canada, which I rate as the friendliest country with the friendliest people. That's not always a combination: friendly people do not always live in a friendly country.

    Forgot to add that I discovered one simple fact: ordinary working folk are more or less the same all over the world, certainly all the ones I met. Most want the same things: peace, enough of a wage to provide for a family and a quiet life with no disasters. It's the politicians (elected or not) who screw up the world.

    There may be more than one way to skin a cat.
    But the result is always inedible.

    I've only travelled for pleasure and am fast approaching 50 (in years and countries), not including countries where I haven't left the airport. I doubt that I'll get to 100 before I croak it but you never know.
    I got a letter from the government the other day. I opened it and read it. It said they were suckers.
