"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Sixty five. I might have missed one or two as I've already had to amend the figure to include two more I'd missed). This doesn't include Britain. It will be sixty six in a few days when I go to Sri Lanka.

    I don't want a stay at home badge. I'm afraid the more I travel, the more I like being on the move!

    65 what? Countries?
    But I visited the same countries a couple of times. :(
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,894 mod
    It's 70 countries as I missed out five. Six if you count Tibet as a country (some people say it's China).

    @april I haven't double counted any of these countries. I have visited many more than once, especially European countries, as well as India and Nepal.

    Woooooooooooooooooooow =D>

    So, Your nationality and where are you living are always temporary.

    The only way to contact you is internet, isn't it? :D
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,894 mod
    More or less. I visit my postbox a few times a year, my mother receives a few things, but otherwise the internet is the most useful way of staying in touch.

    How many countries have you visited Science?
    Sorry for my question Science. :))
  • science24science24 Posts: 976 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I will not tell you @april, and you know the reason :P
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,894 mod
    @Science24 have you explored your own country? (Where are you from by the way?)

    Remember if around 80% of Americans have no passport, then about 300 million Americans have never travelled outside their country. And most of them haven't even been outside their state either.

    I have been twice in Iraq. This has been my longest journey until now. :)

    As far as I remember.

    I've just realized that I chose a wrong word in my sentence.
    It has to be "I'm not as well travelled as mheredge, right @mheredge? @Lynne? @Amatsu? @pryfllwyd?

    What were you doing in Iraq Prosey ? Was this for work or holiday?

    Britain (of course), France, followed by Nepal and India are the four top destinations that I travel to. I've lost count of the times I've been to these four countrie and I have explored them all pretty extensively too. But everywhere else where I've been to, I've only visited for a few days to a few weeks. I couldn't say I know anywhere else all that well.

    My mum was working there many years ago. I visited her. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,894 mod
    It must have been very interesting. I visited Iran and loved it.
  • ProseyProsey Posts: 1,223 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes, but I didn't speak English at the time. Anyway I had (or rather my mum had) five marriage proposals. :)) I was blonde and plump (12 years old)
    :))

    @Lynne I would like to apply for an English learner badge. :)

    As I said to Prosey Science24, you are still young. Your time will come. :)
    But I sympathize with you.

    @april? You sympathise with @science24's youth or that @science24 has only travelled to four countries?

    @science24, which countries have you visited? I have never been to Algeria. It's still very much on my list though. I particularly want to go to the south and see the prehistoric rock art down there.
  • science24science24 Posts: 976 ✭✭✭✭✭
    The countries I have visited have those Internet TLD: Tr, Fr, Tn, Ma , try to figure them out?


    I think you want to visite Tassili n'Ajjer National Park. It is a very interesting place to visit. Welcome to Algeria.

    That's in the south isn't it? A friend went to Algeria some years ago, trekking.

    I sympathise with Science's travel experience, but I'm jealous of his youth. :))
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,894 mod
    Age before beauty @april. You have lots of good experiences I'm sure. I think being the age I am is always the best age to be.

  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,905 mod
    Which age is that @mheredge?
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,905 mod
    Which country would you like to visit @Aladdin, if you had the possibility to travel?

    If I had a chance to travel, it will be around the whole world :D

    That-a-boy @aladdin!

    @april, when asked this question in north Vietnam by some lovely ladies trying to sell me some of their souvenirs, I smiled and answered "21 and a bit." One of them kept a straight face and said that she was 14 and her friend was 12.

    @Mheredge,

    Don't you mean attaboy?
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,905 mod
    I always say: "Too old."
