Just 8 countries for me, not counting airport stops.

Thinking about the other thread on states, roughly only ~ 12 for me, just a few more than countries. But that's not counting states we just drove through to get somewhere, w/o really staying to take things in.

Add DC and Puerto Rico, but they aren't states or countries.

Here's a link to make it easier (and provide a common list of countries and comparable counts): Free visited countries map.
According to the list at this link, I have been to 58 countries. That's a lot more than I would otherwise have said, since the list is so detailed that a lot of them are just little island nations and such that I wouldn't have counted.

I have no intention of engaging in further international travel as it is "not my thing".

Wow, a true world traveler.

56 for me.None added to the list for past few years, post semi-retirement. Since there is no longer work stress, the desire to get away and decompress has gone down for DH. I still have itchy feet
Others experience this post-retirement?

Favorite are New Zealand, Italy, Egypt.
Peru and Kenya/Tanzania are top on my to do.

22 for me. Of course, airport stops do not count.

I think my wife's list would have been about 6 more. She has been to all the countries I have been to except one, and also did some travel on her own.

Only 3-Canada, Mexico and New Zealand. New Zealand's south island was surprising. I expected tropical. But it was a mixture of wet and dry. There were areas that I could have sworn I was in the Colorado mountains.

Between your user ID "CMH in CO" and the Colorado mountain comment, I think you can add 1 more, USA.

Nice link, I got 32 with the list. But I question the total. For example, I wouldn't count the US Virgin Islands as a separate country. Didn't go through the other Caribbean locations that were on my list, but I always thought some of them were parts of other countries.
