It is called “缘” in Mandarin and Cantonese. It means "a happy meeting" in some ways.
So,let's cherish it!

I love travelling, but I've never been outside Europe. European countries I have been to:

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine.

Out of those countries I have been to Switzerland and Germany the most, but probably visited the most different towns and regions in Italy. And my favourite out of all the countries is Croatia :)

This year I have trips planned to:

Bergen, Norway - long weekend
Stockholm, Sweden - long weekend
Copenhagen, Denmark - long weekend, first time to Denmark so very exciting!
Spain/Catalonia/France - two weeks travelling from Valenica to Toulouse
Croatia/Montenegro - two weeks travelling from Split to Podgorica
Slovakia - one week, mainly in Poprad

I have been to:
Europe: Norway (obviously), Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Italy, Vatican State, Poland, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Ukraine, Russia, Armenia
Asia: India, Nepal
America: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, USA
Middle East: Egypt, Israel, United Arab Emirates.

Several of these countries I only visited for a couple of days because of work, which means I did not really have any time to see much of the country or the city I was in, but at least I was there :)

Not enough for my liking! I've been to Wales and Scotland within the UK (I live in England). I've been to France, Italy, Germany and Sweden (via Denmark) in Europe, but with the exception of Italy, I haven't been going to see the country, I've been going to see people. And I've been to Jamaica, Grenada and the US outside of Europe. However, Jamaica is the only one of these I wasn't too young to remember.

EDITED to add Slovakia (via Austria) and Cyprus

hummm.... I lumped Wales & Scotland & Northern Ireland into UK (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) So does that mean I can count 3 more?

Being from the United States, I'm not able to just hop over to another country for a long weekend (Canada and Mexico are both too far from where I live). I'm listing the states as well - it doesn't seem right to lump them all into one entry when I have been to so many states.

Within in the US (states, not countries, of course) - ranges from drove through it to stayed a few days to visited many times or lived there:
Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, District of Columbia (I know, not really a state)

Countries outside of the US:
England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France, Bahamas

Switzerland was just a quick stop while on a tour in Italy, but I kept it on the list because I am going to Geneva in May!
