Kind of surprised we don't have someone who has been through the Unspellable 'Stans at some point, and also that with the large East African population in the DC area, there isn't anyone at or recently graduated from Maryland on here who has done Eritrea and/or Somalia.
Oh, I thought I was going to get one off the to do list - heading to Brunei in two weeks. But it's already gone...
I may also have a couple of the "icky-stans" in my future (Tajik & Uzbek)...will keep updated.
Flight leaves for Thailand tomorrow at 10:15 pm!
Great man. SE Asia is magical.
I'm going to knock one off as I've been to Mongolia.
My updated list (haven't done this in a little while):
UK (Scotland and England)
Vatican City (cheap)
Favorites are all of SE Asia and South Asia (not as nice, but unbelievably interesting). Europe is great too. China is kind of meh, Mongolia was really cold, and Korea was boring but the food was spectacular.
lucky me - I scheduled my trip for the smoky season
I will be in Chiang Mai. Studying A Broad. Who happens to be my girlfriend. Any suggestions would be much appreciated
What's the criteria being used? Many of the listed places aren't countries. I'll be striking Moldova from the "needed" list in a few months. Also, I'll take a trip to Transnistria... not sure that's not include when Svalbard and French Guyana are. FG is literally a part of France.
Bosnia i Herzegovina
This summer will add:
LOL at me. Broke my big toe last night (pretty sure). My girlfriend tore her meniscus last week, and the North of Thailand is covered in smoke. I'm gonna need a vacation after this vacation.
In chronological order: Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar (UK, I know), Argentina, Japan, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Bahamas, France, Belgium, Austria, England, Scotland... not really that impressive but thanks to years and summers abroad I am proud to say that I've spent about 20-25% of my adult life outside of the USA.
I wanna go to Kyrgyzstan.
Wow. Impressive lists. What do you do that you get to go to so many countries in one year?
My meager list:
US Virgin Islands
I'm planning on adding Turkey this summer and Iceland (hopefully) later this year.
The second part? Basically just gonna take three months. I'll spend more time in some places than other. e.g. Albania is looking like a 2 night stay to visit a friend.
I have summers free right now, so it's easy (ier) when you have that kind of time. Figured after I spend a decent chunk in Turkey I'll just travel overland (probably mostly bus) through Eastern Europe and find somewhere to fly back home from. Maybe Berlin or something. The distances over there aren't so bad. It looks like mostly 7-8 hour bus rides between major cities I'll stop in (Sofia to Bucharest for example). When I come home I typically have zero money left though.
Awesome! OP updated.
I'm in China now for the first time so I've got another addition to my personal list. Not new for the Suque obv.

Which part of China UTF? I was just in Chengdu/Sichuan, kind of a nice change of pace to the crowds/traffic/smog of Beijing/Shanghai. Although they still had bad air quality there (just not as bad as Bj).
I'm in Beijing for a conference. Unfortunately won't be able to get anywhere else this trip. Thanks to a 4-day holiday weekend and some strong winds, the last two days were very nice here; you could actually see blue sky and mountains in the distance. Today, the smog is back. Beijing is more commercial than I expected...shopping malls that could really be anywhere.
Netherlands (several trips)
Germany (before the fall of the wall)
I expect to travel to Africa in May for work. Those destinations could include: Ghana, South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania as well as a return trip to Nigeria. If you ever end up in Nigeria and like Fela Kuti and afrobeat, the best music that I have ever heard live was at a place called Blake's in Abuja. I should be in the Canary Islands in September. If anyone has been there, I would appreciate your thoughts.
You are really lucky to see the mountains. It only happens every couple months. Although, sometimes, depending on the conference (and how important the VIP's are), the Chinese will seed the clouds to make it rain and get rid of the smog for a couple days. Makes it more impressive for foreign dignitaries.
you guys should have to take pictures in these countries with cardboard gary to prove the suque has been there.
always love this thread..should be knocking off Lebanon in July at latest...

My uncle lived in American Somoa for 3 years. Went out there to visit him for a couple weeks. Real laid back place. My uncle met my plan on the runway...
Heading to Switzerland and Austria next week, for two weeks.
Hitting Zurich, Lucerne, Bern, Zermatt, St. Moritz and Vienna. Got some major tourist things planned for most places. I have not done a lot of traveling so I'm looking for general Europe trip advice as well as Swiss and Austria specific. Anyone have any recommendations for sights, food, events, or just general tips? Thanks
You will love Switzerland and Austria.
In Zermatt, have raclette or fondue at the Restaurant Whymper-Stube.
get to add Belgium once I land early Thursday morning
