ooh.

i think that [one day] we shuold all fill out one of those maps that shows how many countries you've been to.

i just tried to tot mine up and got 37 excluding vatican city. not extraordinary but surely well above average?



Do Scotland Ireland and Wales count?


nah - 'GB' is one.

mind you, mulling over my list i realise that my 37 did in fact not only include VC but also two places that, on further reflection, i can't recall actually giong to, and therefore probably did not, namely romania & austria. so make it a round 35.

no. regions that span more than one country, such as lapland or, er, borneo do not count.

sitting around in an airport waiting for a connection does not count. anything else [including a daytrip] does.

Oddly enough I think the only country where I have been solely for work was Morocco, all of the others I have had free days / holidays in.

I just like hearing the sound of your voice. I don't know why your missus has such a problem with it.

An impressive list. Made me realise I've somehow never been to Holland. I should get that sorted.

my wife's list would be extremely long, nudging most of the way towards triple figures, although work would, in one way and another, explain most of those.

i must say that jet-setting has never really appealed to me. all of my overseas trips were a case of one of work, a stag do, football, or being dragged on holiday by the missus. i'm much more of a david batty filey caravan type myself at heart. i hate flying & hot weather, don't particularly like the feeling of being a 'foreigner', and detest being around poor people.

the only travel-related thing that would really appeal to me would have been to go somewhere for a year or two and really properly immerse myself in its culture so that i properly understood [e.g. by working there, befriending people from there, maybe shacking up with someone from there] it but i think this would have been much more enjoyable as a younger, well specifically a single, chap.

similar sentiments here, but get yourself down to the South Pacific, it is really another world.

my sophisticated friend from our capital city escorted me to wembley for the play off final 18 months ago. he's originally from fulham way and now lives in highgate. he was visibly disturbed by the oral travesty that was the specimens from doncaster and, to a lesser extent, leeds. there were a few thousand trogs on tour.

it seems quite a harsh judgement until you wander round his parts of town on a summers day.

he's been to loads of countries just for the sake of it. i haven't. i do fancy going to japan, korea, singapore, vietnam etc when the kids are older. i'm saying this to look more adventurous and less provincial than i probably am.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.
