The tales of two pernicious pugs and their doormat.

Ah...travels.

Well, today I've been looking at tickets for international flights and pictures of some of my old trips beyond the sunny lands of good ol' US of A. I've been trying to calculate how many countries I've visited, and whether some "count" as having visited or not. I've always felt somewhat guilty labeling places I've stepped foot on for an hour or so as somewhere I've "visited". So it's now up to you, dear readers, to let me know if they count or not. I shall abide by your wishes. Here's a list of places by category.

Places I've stayed at longer than 24 hours:
Sweden
Norway
Denmark
The Netherlands
France
Switzerland
Czech Republic
Austria
Hungary
Croatia
Italy
Greece
Spain
Portugal
England
Canada
Brazil
Ecuador
Mexico
Jamaica

Places I've stayed at less than 24 hours:
Slovakia
Costa Rica
Argentina
Paraguay

Places I've used the bathroom at:
Germany
Belgium
Panama

Now it's your turn to vote and decide - and if any of you have visited any of these places, I'd LOVE to hear your opinion about it or your experiences. I'm a travel junkie (as must be evident by now), so I love listening to anything related to traveling. Toodles!

Wow! That's amazing. The only time I've stepped foot out of the USA was for the visit trip to see Kevin. I haven't even been around our own country...only the east coast of it.

Funnily enough, I've never really had much interest in exploring the states, although I know there are some really fantastic sights - but still, I prefer traveling somewhere other than the US. And like you, I really haven't seen much of the US either. I've primarily been around Michigan, California, and Minnesota all my life. :) I prefer Minnesota - California's just too crazy.

I spent 6 months in Southern Italy and 2 weeks in Corfu, Greece. I HIGHLY recommend either of those. It was the most amazing time and I always felt like I had just stepped into a scene from "Roman Holiday" with all the little Italian ladies calling me Bella! Bella! and the scooters zipping around and the men..so fiery, so passionate...meow! :)
