Got anything to say that's not about the Tube? Say it here!

That's...
Austria
Belgium
Switzerland
Czech Republic
Germany
Denmark
Spain
France
United Kingdom
Hungary
Ireland
Italy
Netherlands
Norway
Portugal
Sweden
Vatican City (I've stood in St. Peter's Square, Rome, so I think that counts)
Monaco
Canada
United States

That site seems to be based on internet top level domains, which explains the "alphabetical" order. It also means it lists way more that would be acceptable on Pointless!

I've been to 15 US states, not counting ones I've only been through on a train.
