visited 15 countries (6%)

map of countries, the one I visited coloured in red

I saw this when I was looking at Chaals’ blog and decided to make my own map. 15 countries visited, 6%.
I am very fortunate to be able to travel.

I should be honest with regard to the map above as there is lots of red in it for very little I have seen. It seems by looking at it that I’ve seen all of the USA, all of China and all of France (and the rest).

Being French I am a little ashamed of the small amount of places I’ve visited. On the other hand, I’ve lived in 10 towns in France (6 over the last 6 years).

I’ve travelled 3 times to Spain, 4 times to Italy, 4 times to Germany, twice to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, once to Geneva, Switzerland, once to Budapest, Hungary (well twice in fact, I went in a scouting mission before the real time ;), I’ve been 6 or 7 times in the UK and I lived a year in Edinburgh when I was 21.

I’ve travelled once to Toronto and twice to Montreal, Canada, to Boston (a few times) and around, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Jose in the USA. I travelled once to Tokyo, Japan, once to Hong-Kong, China. I travelled once to New-Zealand, last year, for a pretty pretty enjoyable 3-week vacation. We covered about 4800 kilometers from Auckland in the North Island to Wanaka in the South Island and back.
