The problem with this thread is that you have people who have had a week at Disneyland in Orlando and say they have done America type posts. Or London and say they have seen England, or Paris and say they have seen France, or Sydney and say they have seen Australia, etc.
If a 20 year old won a few million on the lottery, within a month he could have visited just about every country in the world.
This thread is just counting passport stamps, so to speak.
"The problem with this thread is that you have people who have had a week at Disneyland in Orlando and say they have done America type posts"
I'm not sure that's actually a problem - I think the whole "fun" of this post is that it's just a list of countries we've visited, whether for a day or two or a few years. When can anyone actually say they have "done" a country? I lived in Britain for forty years but never went to Stratford-on-Avon - absolute blasphemy in the eyes of Shakespeare fans. And I've now lived in New Zealand for eleven years but only spent three hours (at Christchurch airport) in the South Island. I'm sure I'll explore it fully some time down the line but I still think I know a bit about NZ.
The thread probably is "just counting passport stamps" but I think most of the posters here know that and take it all with a pinch of salt.
