How many countries have you been to in your life so far and how old are you? At what age did you first go to a country other than the one you are from? I've only been to one other country and I was about 10 years old. I went to Belgium with my parents and aunt and uncle.

I live in the U.S., I have been just across the border into Mexico, twice; I've been to the very western part of Canada, twice; I've been to England, three times; and to Austria, Italy, Swizerland and France. Of course, I live not just in the U.S., but in the great nation of Texas, so you can take what you want from that.

Well, darn, forgot to include the ages. I was 8 the first time into Mexico - just across the border from El Paso in Juarez; 14 when we did the European tour, including the first trip to England; 19 the first time I went to Canada; in my late 30's the time I returned to Canada; 41 the second time I went to England; and 49 my 3rd time. My parents moved me to Texas from New Jersey before I was 2 and I've lived in Texas since.

I have been to 50 different countries so far in my life. At the moment I am 36 years old. I went on day trips to France when I was a child and I dreamed of traveling to more countries. I saved up money from my paper round to go to on holiday to Greece when I was 14 years old with my mum. My next trip was the Netherlands with a friend when I was 17 years old. At 18 years old I worked as a children's nanny in Finland then traveled around Europe by train on my own. When I was 20 I let out my house and got a working holiday visa for Australia. I went around the world for just over one year. When I was 30 I went on another long trip to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Traveling is my top hobby and I will continue to travel to as many different places in the world during my lifetime.
