    Just the one for me - the OH and I are planning a trip in September, but where and when is a bit up in the air at the moment due to job stuff.

    I went to Ireland (the Republic of Ireland) at the beginning of the year and I've been over to the continent twice so far, once in April and once in May (but both of these where just for the day), so not sure what I come under.

    If daytrip counts - i'll have to increase my answer to around 50! But i live in N.Ireland so am quite often over the border!

    I think perhaps the definition of overseas should be overseas! ie: if your from Engkand Scotland or Wales, Ireland is overseas, if your from Ireland, England, Scotland or Wales is overseas!
