  • To what countries in the world have you been?

    I saw those other "Where in ______ have you been?" threads and thought this was inevitable logical extension. No map, though, unless someone wants to provide one.

    Not counting airport-only visits:

    USA (home country)
    Japan (lived there 6 years)
    Mexico
    South Korea
    Singapore
    Cambodia
    France

    Mr. mossy has been to Australia and Rhodesia (yes, that's what it was called then). New Zealand, Fiji.

                              Deliberate. We landed on a rocky outcropping that was Cuban territory and got off going "We're in Cuba!" Then we started thinking about how at this time if you were caught the Cuban authorities tended to seize everything from your boat to the clothes on your back, lock you up for a couple of weeks to months and then kick you out. We decided that we really didn't want to get thrown in a Cuban jail and got the heck out of there.
