    According to the UN, there are 193 countries (with some debate). How many have you been to and which ones (please don't include holdings of other countries...for example, the Cayman Islands are not a country)... For a good reference see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states

    I've been to 20 (so far!), they are:

    Antigua and Barbuda
    Australia
    Austria
    Bahamas
    Belgium
    Canada
    France
    Germany
    Greece
    Ireland
    Italy
    Japan
    Luxembourg
    Netherlands
    New Zealand
    South Africa
    Switzerland
    United Kingdom

    Depends on how you count it. :) I landed in Switzerland & drove through a portion of it, but never actually did anything, so it may or may not count. (The airport argument. :) )

    United States
    Switzerland
    Austria
    Germany
    United Kingdom (Scotland only)

    Not sure what you mean by this. The Vatican City is considered a sovereign state.

    When I studied Italian, ages ago, I had to do a paper about the sovereignty (is that a word?) of the Vatican State, some things in their contract with Italy are pretty interesting, like when a murder happens at the Vatican, the Vatican police investigates, when a resident of the Vatican is murdered in Italy, the Vatican police gets to investigate, too.

    Every country of the Euro zone makes their own coins, the Vatican coins are highly sought out and never make it to the regular market.
