can people tell me about Japan please, the ones that I have visited! I have always wanted to go there and I am in love with their food!

I from (and live in) Northern California... I get around the bay area and central valley quite a bit, and the Tahoe area. I've been to Reno, Vegas, Phoenix, Houston, Ann Arbor, Chicago (and Evanston), Boston (I spent a summer at Tanglewood in Lenox), NY, New Brunswick NJ... and that's about it for the US.

I've travelled in Europe a few times (for "work"). I've been to Moscow and St Petersburg, Vilnius (Lithuania), Ireland (Limerick, Cork, and Dublin), Paris, around various places in Normandy, Lyon, Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Villach, Vienna, Prague, Amsterdam, Zandvoort, Köln, Nuremberg.... and I know I'm forgetting a few. Given that my trips to Europe have all been on working orchestra tours, I've had varying amounts of free time to explore those places, but I've spent the most time in the more obvious places like Vienna, Paris, Dublin, and Munich.

Been traveling all my life. My dad was in the foreign service and my late husband worked for an international trading firm. I've been to most of Europe, North and South America, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia and Vanuatu.

I've never really left the UK at all, only to go to France for a three day school trip when I was 12 years old...that's about it for me!

We visited Calais, and it was pretty enjoyable at the time.

I've been to the other side of the world, but I missed everywhere in-between.

I've been to the UK, but never made it to the Continent of Europe, in fact I only visited London. I'm sorry about that now, because it would have been nice to see the English Countryside. I've been to both the East and West Coasts of Canada, and I've been to Tijuana and Ensinada Mexico. In the USA, I've traveled to New York, New Jersey, Florida, Chicago IL, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada. When going by car, I've travelled through all of the states in between or enroute, but only went through those in between states. Usually I go by plane, so the only Southern State I've ever been in, was Florida.

For what it's worth, I think something like 1/4 of all Americans have never been more than 100 miles from their birthplace.

Well, I guess this makes me feel better, since I've been 20 times that far (Los Angeles/San Diego, about 2,000 miles away from Chicago.)

I've lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and now New Hampshire. And I've vacationed to Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Virginia, Kentucky, and Florida.

The only place out of the United States I've been to is Canada, a couple times. I don't foresee much traveling in our future. I'd love to go to Hawaii someday, or across the ocean to Greece or Ireland. My fiance wants to go to California, but I have a wicked fear of flying. I almost had a panic attack flying to Florida, so I don't know if I'd be able to handle going to Cali or Hawaii.

I've been to all the states on the eastern coast except Maine. I've also been to CA, AZ, Nevada, AL, LA, MO, WI, and TX.

I've been to Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland.

I used to travel a lot until I started my own business. It's kind of hard to get away when you don't have any employees to take over.

I lived in Scotland for about a year and Austria for almost 2-1/2 years. Other countries I've visited include Greece, Egypt, Israel, Mediterranean islands (Crete, Mykonos, Rhodes, Patmos, Corfu), Italy, Sicily, Jugoslavia (before it split into several different countries), Germany, Switzerland, Holland, England, Canada, New Zealand, Fiji (only a layover at the airport), Mexico. I think I missed a couple in there.

I've probably been in about 3/4 of the U.S. states. Lived in Illinois, Utah, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, Arizona. I also did traveling nursing for about two years and got to a lot of different states with that.

The only country besides the US is Mexico and it was just one or two of the border towns (not too surprising considering I live in South-Central Texas.)

States I've been to are...
Texas (home state)
New Mexico (lived there a year)
Tennessee (would love to move there)
North Carolina
Illinois (loved Chicago would have loved to visited the science museum)

Driven through a few but didn't really visit those so I won't count them. So not too well traveled...

I have never left the country, but I've been all over the US and am quite happy with that... Someday I will travel to another country.
