    Basically, it would be cool if everyone posted the countries they have been to and I will delete them from the list, and we will see how many countries we are left with. Perhaps we will even get all of them! (although I highly doubt it because countries like San Marino, Tuvalu and Kiribati exist :) )

    Here are mine:
    Canada
    USA
    UK
    France
    Germany
    Switzerland
    Austria
    Spain
    Italy
    Vatican city
    Belgium
    Netherlands

    NB: Wrte out the complete list, not just those that haven't been said :)

    If we really want to do this, perhaps the easiest and most sensible (and least confusing) method would be for each person replying to the thread to copy the list posted by the individual immediately upthread from them, delete any countries they have visited themselves, and then post the edited list. Then the individual replying to them can do the same and so on, with each post reducing the list further.

    This would also mean the moderators would not have to edit any posts :p

    It's a good idea, but I thought that would make the page incredibly long, and with some countries being visited many more than others, some people maybe wouldn't be able to contribute...

    I was just thinking that once in a while I would publish an edited list which would allow people to see our progress :)

    Clearly some very well traveled people here (much more so than me) though I doubt we will get someone who has been to North Korea! My rather mundane list includes places already mentioned (with the possible exception of Mexico).

    Mexico
    United States of America
    United Kingdom (England, Scotland)
    Spain
    France
    Switzerland
    Austria
    Germany
