I discovered the passion for travelling abroad fairly late. I had by then visited 15 of the 17 regions of my own country already. Since a few years ago I travel as much as I can across Europe and have lived in 5 cities of 3 different countries. Also, I have travelled quite a lot across some of the countries I've visited during several trips. For instance, I visited many places in 10 of the 12 Dutch provinces when I used to live there. May I consider myself a slow-pace traveller? I think I am, since during the last few years I've been moving countries and discovering the lands spread around my base points through a number of regular short trips.

So far I've been in:

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, United Kingdom (England, Wales and Scotland) and Vatican City.

ALthough it isn't that much, it keeps growing!

So far I have a huge list consisting of:
-Australia (lived here for my whole 21 years)
-Japan (visited twice for a total of 5 weeks)

Though as I will be going on exchange to Germany for a year from February, I plan to take full advantage of the travel opportunities Europe has to offer.
I would also love to see more of Australia as I have lived here my whole life but have only stuck to the east coast. It's such a huge country that I feel I would need a month or so and just drive around the country and see what it has to offer. I work in a tourist park in a coastal town and constantly meet travellers, both Australian and not, who tell me all about their travels and it makes me very jealous (As a side note, this job is amazing for speaking European languages as in the warmer months, I meet at least 1 new german speaker per day and a fair few french speakers as well so this is even better motivation to study). Unfortunately for my bank account, I have a very long list of places I want to visit so I hope that in 1 years time, I will be able to add a fair few more countries to my list, especially since Mannheim is only a stones throw away from other countries (at least to an Australian it is haha)

Yeah, my list isn't very impressive but I guess I'll share it here finally. After all, I don't have anything else I could be doing with my friday evening, like, I dunno, language learning or anything like that. :?

England - I am being specific because I have never been to any other part of the UK. This is my country of origin, where I have lived for all but one year of my life. I haven't seen nearly as much of this country as I would like to yet.

France - Disneyland Paris, when I was wee - hardly remember a thing.

Turkey - One family holiday yeeeeears ago - can't remember anything.

Germany - Coach trip down the Rhine river - I just remember it being beautiful.

Portugal - Week long trip to O Porto and Lisbon on my year abroad. I liked the former city more than the latter, it has to be said.

Spain - I spent 11 months living in Santiago de Compostela (university year abroad) and visited all of the major cities in Galicia, along with a few other little places. I spent a day and night in Asturias, (in Oviedo and Gijón) where I fell in love with asturian cider. I went to Madrid (and Toledo and Segovia) for New Year's which was amazing, then took a trip down the east coast later in the year, visiting Valencia, Murcia and, of course, the great Barcelona, which I much preferred over Madrid, if I'm honest.

Edit: I just remembered that I also went on holiday to Tenerife a number of years ago, and I'm going to Lanzarote in October, so that's something. ;)

Edit #2: Italy - In December 2016, I finally made it to the country I have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember. :) I spent the majority of my week exploring Florence which was one of the most marvellous places I have ever visited, but I also popped over to Pisa for a few hours one day.
