I've noticed that a lot of my friends and at lot of people in the Pit have never been outside of their own country before. I'm curious just how much % of the Pit have lived or have been outside of their cultural borders.

So far, I have lived in three countries and have visited 5 others. A friend of my dad's has liven in 23 countries before and has journeyed almost all over the world. So, what about UG?

PS - Being in the Pit constantly does not count as living in Russia.

Lived in two countries. Visited a couple of others. I plan to work my ass off until I am 35 and then tour the world for a few years, probably camping out of a tent.

By the time you're 35 I'm sure you can raise enough money to actually rent a place wherever you plan on going.

I plan to get a PhD in Mythology or Archaeology after I tour the world, so I think I'll need at least $200k - $300k to spare. Living like a lavish tourist in foreign countries for more than a month = instant depletion of bank account.

Only been to Canada, which barely counts seeing as it's about a 3 hour trip from here.


Canada is the only other country I have been to, also. And I only went to Niagara Falls and Toronto, for one day.

Belgium is pretty sweet! I wouldn't mind living there.

My list is:
France
Italy
Croatia
Slovenia

Yeah, going to Canada from the US or to the US from Canada is a little vague because the cultural differences are minimal.

it seems a lot easier for Europeans considering most of the countries are small and close together where as the US is huge and the countries around it are as well... =/ ive never even been out of the southeast. Traveling costs too much money

Uhh... Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Germany, England, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, USA, Canada, Japan, France, Turkey, Andorra... Mostly European countries. There's more that escape my mind right now, though.

nvr left the states. its pretty big so not as big of a deal as if i lived in, say, iceland lol. but i would really like to travel to europe and see britain, switzerland, and maybe france.

It's actually quite fun to go to other countries when everybody assumes that you're a genius for no reason than being from Europe. When I went to the US people thought I was some kind of Einstein because I was from Europe. Ironically, the same thing happened when I went to the UK, and they're actually IN Europe.

Yeah, I remember you mentioning that in the Communism thread. You went to all the Communist countries and that made for a nice argument.

Where is your evidence for this? Did you take a poll whilst I wasn't looking?

Just to clarify I haven't visited all of them. Just most of the old Soviet satellite states.
