Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe South Sudan did not face any serious problems with international recognition after its independence had been declared.

My countries: Lithuania, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Italy (I'm not mentioning countries where I didn't leave the airport).

Unfortunately, I've only been to South Korea and the Philippines. In the states, I've been to New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia. There are so many countries and states I'd love to add to my list.

A slightly updated list with a few new countries:

Europe:

Netherlands*
Belgium*
Spain*
Romania*
Greece*
France
Germany
Luxembourg
Sweden
Denmark
Norway
Iceland
Austria
Switzerland
Italy
United Kingdom (but only England)
Czech Republic
Andorra
Vatican City
Hungary
Russia
Poland
Slovakia
(Belarus) - I spent all this time on a train. But it was ~24 hours.


North America:
Canada*
United States (quite a few states, about 10 or so I think?)

Asia:
China PR*
South Korea
(and technically North Korea as I stepped over the border at Panmunjeom)


This is by far not enough to satisfy my tastes, so I plan to add a lot more countries to this list (and add a lot more languages in order to speak to people from those countries). I've studied most of the languages of these countries though.

I haven't been to any new country in quite a few years now. Maybe my best chance for increasing the number is Scotland or Catalonia becoming independent. :D

In India people only seem to understand England. I was interviewing some potential students in Delhi once, and at another table one candidate was being told about Glasgow: "Is it in England?", "Yes, yes, England" she was assured... I've yet to have problems with forms though.

Most of my holiday travel has been around various parts of Britain and India. I've not got a great desire to travel elsewhere, but somehow academic conferences and other persuasions have taken me away from this island to more places than I thought: Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Malta, Sweden, the Netherlands, USA.

(Israel proved to be "unlucky 13" - we were all booked to go this summer, but illness scuppered the whole plan.)

I haven't really travelled very much, but I have lived for several years in several places.
** more than a year
* more than 3 months


I guess I can add a star to Ireland* and if I can count "Northern Ireland" I can add a mention of that... Or UK if that is what I should call it.

I can't wait for summer; I want to add Scotland, England, Wales, and France to the list.

I'm trying to do enough French and Spanish reps that I will be able to be an outstanding tourist next summer in Europe.
I listen to and use my fossilized Tagalog every day.
I read and watch movies in Spanish and French whenever I get the chance.
