Foreign Countries:
France--Paris, Normandy
Mexico--Cancun
Canada--Toronto
Zimbabwe--Vic Falls, couple of national parks
South Africa--Johannesburg
Germany--Stuttgart
Belgium--Brussels

US:
Tracking cities here is going to be too long...so states:
New York
Maryland
Pennsylvania
Washington, D.C. (okay, not a state, sue me)
Virginia
North Carolina
South Carolina
Tennessee
Georgia
Iowa
Alabama
Mississippi (driving through)
Louisiana
Florida
Texas
Oklahoma
Nevada
Arizona

I'd like to do a road trip through Europe one day. I feel like you get to know the character of a place better driving through than you do just flying in and seeing a few cities...

OO, in fact, the list is very small, I plan to significantly expand it after the virus. Now there are Sweden, France, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy and Turkey in my list)
I really want to visit China, Japan or India, I think it's a really new world)

In the last few months it was Spain, France and Croatia.

I love travelling in small European towns.

(In case any Admins read this, I am really "Montmorency", but currently unable to login under that name, as I forgot my password (after a long time away), and was unable to get the lost-password/password reset to send me a new password (or if it did, it went into an internet black hole).

I later found the "help" email address, and have emailed it, so hopefully I'll get a reply in due course, but if the duty admin happens to see this first, may I ask you to look out for a plaintive email from montmorency@.....uk

Thank you.

--------------

Anyway, this seems like a fun little thread, so I will try to remember my countries, roughly in the order that I first visited them. I'm not particularly well-travelled, and it's mostly Europe:

France
Belgium
(West) Germany (and Eastern Germany later, after reunification)
Netherlands
Italy
USA
Denmark
Switzerland
Spain (including Canary Isles)
Peru
South Africa (Capetown).
Cuba
Sweden
Norway (Visited the Russian border from there, but didn't cross it).

and that was about it until last year when I added:
Czech Republic
Poland (actually only Görlitz, which as people may know is about 3/4 in Germany, and 1/4 in Poland, straddling the Neisse river)

And this year, added Austria (Vienna, although had made a very tiny short token visit across the Austrian border from Germany once before). Also visited Czech Republic and Poland again this year. (We now have a family member living there, not far from both the Polish and German borders. Would probably have gone a lot more often, had it not been for the dreaded Covid-19).

I suppose I should add that I was born in, and live in England, and have visited Scotland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland, Jersey in the Channel Islands, but not Northern Ireland or the Isle of Man.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

I just renewed my passport so I've been thinking about this--I guess I'll record it here.

N. America
USA
Canada
Mexico
Panama

S. America
Peru
Uruguay

Europe
UK
France
Spain
Monaco
Germany
Belgium
The Netherlands
Austria
Hungary
Poland
Croatia
Czech Republic
Slovakia
Slovenia
Italy

Asia
Hong Kong [classify this how you will]
Thailand
Singapore

Oceania
Australia

I think that sums up to 25 right now. Hope I get the chance to increase that this year--top priorities are a lot more of Asia (Japan, S. Korea, etc) and a lot more in S. America.
