Its very true, so easy to travel to different countries here in Europe.
Where are you from?
@htmndg183 I'm living in Florida, USA. COVID really set back my travel plans. I want to fill out that map!
Good luck sir. I was wondering where you're from because i thought maybe you'd be from one of the countries not shaded on the map lol.
What countries are you looking to tick off in particular?
@htmndg183 In addition to Antartica, the next trip will also include Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, The Falkland Islands, and Brazil. That will fill out the South American map quite nicely. After that, I need to visit Russia, along with India and Pakistan. Russian visas are difficult to obtain, but far from impossible. India? I've always wanted to go there. Pakistan? If I'm in India, I might as well visit Pakistan. Americans have a reputation of never leaving the United States, and that is true to a certain extent. Even so, I enjoy travel. I like to get on buses or trains and just ride along with the locals. It's amazing how friendly people are; even having strangers buying tea or a pastry for me, when I know that it is expensive for them to do so. There are a lot of nice people in this world. I wish that I could meet them all!
Oh wow. Good luck. You are a proper traveller it seems. I'm pakistani and its not often you hear someone saying they want to come to pakistan despite more and more foreigners visiting it over the past 5 or 6 years.
Ask us how many states we've been to. The U. S. is the size of Europe. It's a lot easier to visit other countries that don't require transcontinental travel. Let's say you live in NL near the Brussels. You could probably make the drive in one day and hit 3 different nations. There's no way you could see the borders of Canada and Mexico in one day.
@TrueConfection Yeah I agree, I think it's crazy.
@TrueConfection The number of states visited would be a good question and this question was nearly that, but I thought I'd be inclusive to the rest of the world this time. Next question will be that one. Considering I live in the UK I've been to a lot of states in the US.
I've seen both questions before. I was just pointing out that Americans do travel within our continent, but we can literally drive days in a straight line and still be in the U. S. We are finally seeing school trips to other countries, but they cost thousands of dollars per student.
@TrueConfection yes i agree completely, and transatlantic travel is vastly expensive.
