I get sad reading this post. I love to travel and see the world, just never have enough time or money doing what I want to do.

I have been to:
China
US
Japan
Thailand
Bahamas
St. Marteen (Not to sure how to count, half Dutch/half French?)

I hope to accomplish Mexico and Canada in next 3 years. One or two european countries in next 5 or 8 years.

France
Monaco
Italy
Austria
Germany (have to admit just an airport stop in Frankfurt)
Greece
Ireland
Russia
Ukraine
Mexico
Canada
Israel
Caribbean countries: Montserrat (technically British); British Virgin Islands; Aruba & Curacao (I believe they are the same country but could be wrong); Guadeloupe (French?); St. Martin (both sides-two countries); Dominican Republic; St. Lucia (I am sure I am missing some)

We were supposed to go to Japan this summer but due to a really unstable family situation that has been put on indefinite hold.

ETA: I knew I forgot some Islands: Jamaica and Bahamas.

ETA: Dang it...forgot Spain too.

Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten are Dutch. St. Martin is French. So there, you get to count France and The Netherlands.

I have not traveled as much as I would like. I end up going back to the USA a lot. So far:

Barbados (home)
St. Lucia
St. Vincent
Grenada
Dominica
Republic of Trinidad and Tobago
USA (and Puerto Rico)
Canada
England
France
Austria

In the near future I need to go to Mexico for work, but have no plans to go anywhere else soon. It just costs too much. At least with the USA or Canada I can get there using our airmiles. Yes technically I can use airmiles to go to Europe too, but I find the taxes cost prohibitive for a family of 5.

Gwada (Guadeloupe) is a French department

Aruba ( Bonaire) and Curaçao are what we call the ABC Islands, there are 3 islands altogether, and as U2rocks says are Dutch

Only 3 - USA, Canada, and Mexico - but I am young yet.

Someday I hope to have the time and money to travel overseas.

ETA: DH was born in the USA but was an Army Brat, I believe they spent some time in Europe, specifically Germany, when he was a child. His mom says he spoke German as a toddler, but then lost it. Then he joined the USMC out of high school, and has been to Iraq, Kuwait, and Egypt (the "airport" version). He was supposed to go to Japan when the 1st Gulf War broke out, and his orders got changed. He always says he really would have preferred Japan.
