46 for me with no airport stops. Most has been in the service of Uncle Sam. I have 6 more lined up in the next few months.

The number of places I reported earlier might seem high, but the truth is that I have such superficial knowledge of those places, either just passing through or spent just a night or two.

To really travel the world, one cannot do it by airplanes. The world looks small when one is cruising at 35,000 ft altitude and at speed of 500-600mph. But when one is on a ground vehicle, it is a totally different thing!

A few years back, I read a couple of books by Jim Rogers, an eccentric billionaire who toured the world twice with ground vehicles. The first trip was on a motorcycle, and the second time in a specially built SUV. Each trip took a couple of years. He talked about traveling through war-torn countries, and places where there were no roads. Each time he crossed the borders, he had to deal with customs and immigration. He bought and eat local food, negotiated and arranged for transportation and repair of his vehicles.

Now, that is a real word traveler. I will have to check out and read his books again.

Does hitchhiking, (and using local buses/trains), count? Did a fair bit of that in "my time".

35, 30 or so of which I've visited more times than I can remember. I'm on my 3rd passport in 12 years, the first two having had additional pages added twice (the limit), the third has one set of additional pages that is now almost full, and I need to find a two-week "no-travel-period" so I can have the embassy add more pages again.

85-90% of the above is for work.

Been to more countries that I have been to US states.

I wanna go home...and stay there.

I loved his book Adventure Capitalist. I think he's maybe a better writer/adventurer than hedge fund operator these days, though.

And I've only got 11, dang it. But if we make it to the mongol rally next year, I will up the tally considerably!

29, all were at least a day except for a few cruise ship stops (I only counted them if I actually got off the ship).

32 countries with visits of at least a week. Didn't count 1 day type stops. Also didn't count about 6 Central American and 6 Caribbean because it was Spring breaks in college and I cannot recall anything about the countries other than the hotel rooms and the drinking.
