    I went to Acapulco, México.

    And I'm from Mexico and I live in Mexico. So I guess it doesn't count, right?

    I went to Tiajuana for like 5 minutes once while visiting San Diego. It was scary, so we turned around and went back. This was in 2002 I believe, which had to be a lot better than the situation now.

    In 2000, I went on a cruise that started out in Houston, then went through Mexico City, stopped at Chichen Itza with Mayan ruins, the Bay Islands on Honduras, stopped at Cozumel as well, it was pretty cool. Then in 2005, I lived abroad in Japan for a while, so it was like a really long vacation. Aside from Central America and Asia, haven't left the country.

    England (London and surroundings) - Went there as part of a language course in around 2006. I've really liked it back then and I'd be happy to see it again after all this time.

    Germany (Berlin) - I went there twice, once quite some time ago when I still was in high school and more recently with friends. We had a ton of fun both times!

    Scotland (Edinburgh, Glasgow and a trip around the Highlands) - Full of friendly people and all kinds of interesting sights. Also the Highlands are just breathtaking.

    Belgium (Lots of different places) - I have a belgian friend who took me on a tour, I've seen a good chunk of it on both sides, Wallonia and Flanders. I've seen both the good and the bad of the country, but overall it was nice. Plus they have great beer :grog:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Imola
    2004 Slovenia/Croatia/Bosnia

    2005 Slovakia/Czech rep. (Earliest digital photos I still have)

    2006 France (Corse) (For that other "first video game ever/most influential" topic where I said Pokemon Crystal, I managed to do a few trades with another francophone kid - a testament to the effectiveness of gestures as a single language)

    More than five times around those years, northern Südtirol so north it really doesn't feel part of Italy

    2009 Ireland (Galway) (I felt so proud doing my first and last international UMTS video call at over 1 €/minute)

    2011 England (London/Brighton) (discovered CeX and bought Animal Crossing for the GC)

    2013 USA (Cali/NV/AZ)

    2014 Germany (München) (last year of high school trip, nominally ;) "out-of-school education")

    2016 Japan

    2018 Austria (Wien) (mostly for business/education rather than tourism)

    Soon, New York (my mom really wants to give me some plane tickets after I graduate)


    All three northern continents covered, but that means I miss the three or four, depending on how you count, southern ones!

    Oh boy, I am definitely going to have the longest list on here. So here’s what I remember (because I know I’m bound to forget some):

    - Bahrain (Almanama)
    - Saudia Arabia (AlKhobar, Mekkah)
    - UAE (Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi)
    - Jordan (Amman)
    - Lebanon (Beirut)
    - Syria (Damascus)
    - Egypt (Cairo, Alexandria, Fayyoum, Sharm Alsheikh, Arish)
    - Turkey (Istanbul, Bursa)
    - Germany (Munich)
    - Austria (Salzburg, Vienna, Zell am See)
    - England (London, Brighton, Manchester, Liverpool)
    - Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)
    - Singapore (Singapore)
    - Hong Kong
    - China (Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen)
    - Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kobe, Kawaguchiko “Mt. Fuji”)
    - Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane)
    - Canada (Vancouver, Niagara Falls)
    - USA (New York, Buffalo, New Jersey, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Virginia “Tyson’s Corner”, Washington DC, Miami, Orlando, San Diego, Los Angles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle)

    And that’s not counting the times I have been several times. Like for example, I have been to the US and London specifically at least 10 times each. I also lived in Cairo as a kid for 5 years.

    Favorite place? Hands down: Japan
