    Do you not want folks to differentiate between places they've lived, been on holiday, &/or been in transit? (--which only a few people have actually stated e.g. Perun). I mean, do you really care if I've been in transit in Schiphol?

    Yeah, I only mentioned places I have spent some time in (vacation, extended work assignment, etc). I could not count changing planes in London as having been to the UK .. so I left that out.

    And realized I left some out from a Caribbean trip ... off to edit

    Yeh, apologies for the above; I see quite a few folk have actually given detail. I actually just meant Forostar!

    So, Foro thread-starter --do you think you could state whether you lived in these places, just passed through them, holiday'd, etc? I'd like some more detail, please. :D

    Wow, lots of contributions. Thanks, everybody!
    I have only lived in the Netherlands. All other countries can be seen as holidays. None were just passed through, although you can judge that for yourself if you read on. ;-) My wife is from Poland so by now that country probably ranks highest. But I have also been many times to France with my parents. Great memories of cycling holidays out there. My parents are still doing that, not only in certain areas but also to other countries. They went to Santiago, to Rome, to Cracow, to Stralsund (North Eastern Germany), all on bike. I wish I would be as sportive and as motivated as them on their ages.

    The really out of the order countries are Turkey and Canada. I went to the city of Marmaris by boat from Rhodes, an excursion. It took one day. It was a drag, only people trying to sell stuff. And the castle we were aiming for (and which was a major base for the Ottomans, from which they eventually conquered Rhodes a.o. places) was closed. Well, at least I can say I was in Asia. Canada: That's Montreal. I had a girlfriend out there and I stayed there for about two weeks.

    Cried: what about you?

    Flash: I can't judge the position you're in, but I do not think that age has much to do with never going abroad. At least, it can not be the only reason. It depends on a combination of the wish to see other places and the possibilities to do that. Often (a) parent(s) take their children abroad, but again, it all depends on what they want and can.

    Going abroad is very very expensive in Turkey and frankly, we're not that wealthy. And application for a visa takes on forever, we don't have a right to move abroad freely as you guys do in European Union. My father only has 15 days of holiday excluding the weekends and national days. So everything plays a part.
