I'm going to skip my childhood. We lived in France, but went all throughout Europe as my father performed. But I was really small and don't remember much of anything.

I live in the United States, and have been to over half the states.

I've often traveled through Canada as I drove between New York and Michigan. I've also been to Montreal visiting a second cousin.

While getting my Masters in Public Administrative, I spent a week in Seoul, South Korea.

I spent a day in Tijuana, Mexico. I wasn't impressed. I'd like to go back to Mexico, but away from the United States border.

Last year my wife and I took a Rhine River cruise, visiting The Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland.

This year we cruised from Rome to Barcelona, visiting Italy, Monaco, France (again), and Spain.

Languages: I can read and write French, but my spoken capabilities are limited. I'm looking to develop further, especially in a business sense, as I'm getting increasingly asked if I would be able to use French at work.

Incredibly, I didn't set foot off the British Isles until I was 13 and we had a school trip to France. Since then, I've made up for it:

Germany
Ireland
Switzerland
Belgium
Luxembourg
Denmark (lots of day trips with work to Copenhagen)
Hungary
Netherlands
Greece
Croatia
Poland (a day trip with work, but that still counts, right?!)
Bulgaria (again, another work trip, just one night)
Spain
Portugal
Cuba
Ecuador
Brazil
Argentina (just three nights!)
Bolivia
Chile
Canada
USA
India

This is making me wistful for pre-child days where we could go off on long-haul flights to places which weren't necessarily child-friendly!

I've probably spent more time in Latin American countries than Spain, so my understanding of Spanish is better in those countries than it has been in Madrid or Barcelona. Having spent five weeks in South America, it came as a bit of a shock going to Brazil for a week and realising I understood very little in comparison!

My list of places to go in future includes:

China
Thailand
Australia
New Zealand
South Africa
Iceland
Norway
Sweden... in fact, all of Scandinavia!
More of South America, including spending more time in the countries I’ve already been to (Ecuador excepted!)

My husband has created a spreadsheet weighing up ease of visiting with a small person in tow vs costs of travel, etc. It looks like we'll be staying in Europe for some time to come!
