Ok, to soften the blow, some of those are 95% work which means I saw very little of the country.
For example, out of two trips to Singapore I had exactly 4 hours to myself, excluding sleep.

Just to balance out zenmonkey, in order,

Canada
Mexico
Italy
France
Spain
Germany

For a grand accumulation of two months or less for a time of all countries combined, and half of that was in Mexico.

I have been in all but 12 of the United States, and I have lived for at least 6 months or more, in, in decreasing amounts of time,
Texas, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, California and Nevada.

Three foreign countries:

Austria (Vienna)
France (Paris)
Poland (Cracow)

3 is a nice number.
But my favourite number is 9.

When I was so young it really doesn't count since I remember so little: Mexico, the Canary islands and the United States.

In adult age: Norway, England, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Colombia, Costa Rica, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, Czech republic.

Plans for next year: Several spots in Russia for the Football World Cup. I will not repeat the mistake of going somewhere without knowing even the most important phrases such as asking for directions. I expect Russian to be more difficult to me than Spanish (which is difficult) but I will take it on and I have 6 months to get going.

Wow, some people have travelled so much, it's inspiring. It's my dream to travel the world (I know, how original). So far, I've only really been in Europe. Broadly moving West to East, I've visited... ((honestly, all I want to do is gooo eeeeaaaasst, life is peaceful there, go eeeaas-....))

- UK (it's where I was born, but counting it because I need to take a flight to visit most of it)
- Ireland
- France (and Monaco)
- Spain
- Germany
- Belgium
- Slovakia
- Czech Republic
- Austria
- Turkey (but the European side)
