How many countries have you been to?

Post by A Challenge » 30 Jul 2016, 14:33

Out of interest, how many countries have you been to, and what are they? Also, as an aside, how many UK regions and Crown Dependencies have you been to? This tool may be useful, and is what I used.

I may start a leaderbourd, if enough people are interested!

Sorry it's only 3
Crown dependencies are a territory that is under the sovereignty of the British Crown but does not form part of the UK. The Crown dependencies are the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

England
Wales

My list goes...
  • UK
  • Ireland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Belgium
  • Finland (+Latvia if we're counting airport exchanges)
  • USA
I should be adding Denmark and Sweden to that in August, then The Netherlands in October.
Other bits of the UK: Wales, Scotland and Jersey

Singapore clarification: you have to have been into the country (for a reasonable length of time), but I may have done it otherwise, but what do you think of the table idea?

Tell me when you have been to (or are in) those countries and they will be recognized here, but Latvia doesn't count. 7 and 3 then.

I take that to mean you're going on holiday, and so I will say I hope you enjoy it! I am going to put in a poll as to table or not.

I don't think do, but I think you know that! Have you been to the countries (but you are using them as a joke) or is this you not taking this seriously? You have 1 valid answer - the UK.
