Hah!

I like that you included San Francisco on your list.

 

When I'm President, you'll need a passport to get out of California - issued by me personally after thorough review.

 

Lived in Okinawa for 3 years as an Army brat.

Mexico half a dozen times. (never again, fxck 'em)

Aruba (stunk, the landfill was burning)

Costa Rica (beautiful)

Panama (cool, but I wouldn't go back)

Scotland

Ireland

Wales

England

Key West

New Orleans

 

There's so much I want to see around the world, but the wife and I decided we will focus on seeing all our country has to offer before traveling abroad again. Wanna go to Alaska again, wife wants to go to Hawaii.

Been to nearly 40 of the 50 states.

I've always wanted to visit Ireland,Scotland and Israel maybe I will one day. I've been to all 50 states and there are lot's of really cool things to see here in the US, but the world is such a big place with such amazing history and sites. I've enjoyed seeing what I've seen. I always felt safe everywhere I've been, except Mexico.

I'm sure I'm forgetting one place... I also went to canada once but was to young to even remember

 

I live in Ecuador... I think I've traveled thorugh 50% of my country which might sound like nothing but you would be surprised at the variety we have here, including the Galapagos Ilands.

 

I'd love to go to Egipt and the "amazonia" but I've heard some horror stories about health issues there so I will pass.

My first time to Scotland I came across this type of sign' date=' when they mean caution; they really mean it.

 

[center']road%20signs.jpg[/center]

 

 

In Scotland (and I'm Scottish, by the way) they tend to use warning road signs only when life preservation is in the balance (why waste money?).

 

If you come across the white chevrons-on-black "sharp corner" sign - pay heed!

 

For a European I've not done that much in the way of countries but so far;

 

Scotland

England

Wales

Northern Ireland

Eire

France

Belgium

Holland

Denmark

Spain

Germany

Italy

Turkey

Egypt

The Vatican State (does that really count?)

The Principality of Monaco (err, see above)

The Mick' date=' where did you live in Colorado? I had to move away from there too in 2005, partially for health reasons, but I miss it everyday! I lived in Whitelands...I mean Highlands Ranch...[/quote']

 

I hail from Arvada. But I've lived just about everywhere in Colorado at one point or another. My folks moved there in 1971 I was 2. And I moved to NC last November.

 

How long were you there?
