Which countries/states have you been to?

Recommended Posts

I do want to pile on, and I'm not rich, either. The time I did the UT, WY, CO, NE, SD run was allll car, baby, and we stayed with relatives when we got to Nebraska. I got to go to England with a school group, so I got a big discount on that, otherwise there's no way I could've gone. The TN, NC, VA trip we did fly, but we got a pretty darn affordable rate on Southwest. It can be done, man! You don't need a European family to fund you - good deals are out there if you look for 'em. It's all about Motel 6, heh!

Every time we went on a road trip, we stayed with either family or a family friend that could put up with us a couple days. The only time we ever stayed in a hotel was when we went to DC because the family we had in Virginia at the time didn't have room for us, otherwise that's where we would have been.

Usually every summer when my parents had vacation time coming, we'd get in the car and drive somewhere. And every state we went through, we'd stop and find the nearest local attraction and check it out. That made getting to our final destination a lot more fun than just sitting in the car the whole way through.

And we brought food and drinks with us in a cooler so we wouldn't have to stop to eat.....just stopped for bathroom breaks and gas. It helped keep the cost of the trip down so we could buy souvenirs!

I've been driving everywhere I went to (even Colorado and Wyoming) with a fucking camper since I was around 10. So no...I can assure everyone that I am in no way rich

I would love to go out west, especially Colorado and Wyoming. It's my dream to see the sun set over the Rocky Mountains at least once.

That would be nice, are there any trees? If I drive past them at night, I may miss them. I've got a friend near I believe it's Terry Peak, where my journey there might take me.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Oh yeah, to add to my locales, I lived in San Juan, Puerto Rico for 3 years.

Yep! Lots of trees, if I remember right. Especially whatever road it is that takes you to Mt. Rushmore...cool trees, and lots of wildlife, too. We saw a buffalo and a bunch of big-horn sheep just in that one little part. Great countryside.

Colorado is ridiculously awesome. You're going along these roads at the bottom of the mountain, and the cliff just goes straight up next to you so high that you can't see the top from the car window. It's really one of the wonders of the world. Didn't get to see the exciting part of Wyoming, though. We went through the flat-as-a-pancake part where nothing grows, oops! But yeah, can't say enough about Colorado.

Have to agree with you. I was in Colorado (drove from the Denver airport to Vail and Beaver Creek). It was in August, and we had rain on the drive to Vail. The roads are so scary! But besides that, it is gorgeous. The mountains and the views are breathtaking. I have wanted to go to British Columbia for a long time. I have wondered how Colorado stacks up to the Canadian Rockies.

I have not traveled nearly enough and hope to when my daughter is a little older. I am happy staying in the States. I have been to Vermont, Massachussetts, Connecticut, New York, NYC, PA, NJ (all the shores points many times), Delaware (for concerts), MD and VA (many times), D.C., North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida (many times) including the Keys, Louisianna (New Orleans), Colorado, California, and lived in Nevada. Only place outside the U.S. was Mexico twice (lovely).

Sounds pretty normal to me. We've done a lot of these family holiday's and our fair share of camping as well. It doesn't need to cost a fortune.

Well, since my family isn't rich like all of yours, I've only been to a few places and that's probably it for my entire life.

Wisconsin

Tennessee (twice in 2000)

and I've been to Illinois plenty of times

Pretty pathetic right? Oh well. Maybe some day I'll get a European family who is rich and lets me travel on my own to another country.

Now that you are all grown up, you can work hard, make money, take vacations and you won't have to mope around and blame everything that you did not get {or get to do) as a kid on whoever you blame it on.

Hmmm,

well states:

I live in New York

I used to live in Wisconsin

I used to live in Illinois

Missouri

Tennessee

Louisiana

Indiana

Michigan

Ohio

Minnesota

New Jersey

Maryland

Virginia

Connecticut

countries:

I was born in Pakistan

Canada

Italy

England

Saudi Arabia

United Arab Emirates [Abu Dhabi, I love that city's name]

Kuwait

and alwizard, I am impressed again by the travelling you did, and I know that was possible because of the military. If I do join, maybe that'll be possible for me [not thinking about joining just for the travel]

if not, I can always manage to go to more places somehow.

and DoubleNecker, I'm sorry you feel that way, but I'll suggest reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac [granted, different era] and then you'll see there's always a way you can salvage out a road trip without worrying about money [granted, you don't need to act like Kerouac ]. I went to Italy and England after I was leaving Pakistan to go home, just a bit more than a few hours and we did a lot of sight-seeing

According to the "Cities I've Visited" Facebook application, I signed 42 countries but I think I missed some because I didn't take a good care of european countries.

About USA states I don't know, because I never thought about them as different states but only one, even if big ... :slapface: I've been three or four times to Hawaii ... does it count more eh eh ?

the sad thing is no plans for the future ... :rolleyes:
