I've visited: Queensland
I've lived in: South Australia, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory
I've travelled through: Victoria (a lot, but still I was just passing through).

I've never been out of the country unless you count my mother's working holiday (she was a nurse on a package tour for a group of disabled people) to the US early in her pregnancy with me. I haven't even travelled very extensively within the states I lived in, except for the trip to Queensland I've never been further north than Taronga Zoo, and not much further west than Grandma and Grandpa's holiday shack on the east shore of the Yorke Peninsula.

You should. It's really cool. Well, it's cold here, but...

Oh, is it my turn?

Well, I've visited:
Oregon
Washington
Canada
Nevada (VEGAS, BABY!)
Texas
Louisiana (where I was born)
Arizona
New Mexico

I'm hoping, in late summer/early fall, to visit Mexico, if my skedge permits.

i live in Canada...i have been to Quebec and i live in Ontario.

As for the US...when i was ten, my parents took my brother and i on a drive to FLORIDA! ha. it was awesome. took 3 days because we stopped every where along the way. i guess i saw a lot of States, but i can't remember them all. I loved the US. i thought it was great. :)
my brother and i would copy the accents we heard :)

i have also been to North Carolina a lot. of course, this was all before the age of 9.

Ya know, that would be the sweet thing about a big getlazy gettogether! Just hearing everyone's accent. haha. Being able to understand some of us would be difficult xD

I've been told I have a "yankee" accent. whatever that means. I don't think ours is really noticable. Nothing really compared to like a Brooklyn accent or those really thick southern accents, y'all. >_<

So uh, eh, then, eh? :p

Visited France, England, and New Zealand. Passed through Belgium on the way to France, but that doesn't count I think. Same with Hong Kong and Singapore to/from NZ, we had to switch planes there but we never left the airport so I wouldn't say I've visited those countries :)

I've been to Canada lots of times. I love visiting Toronto! We used to go a lot, since we live quite near the border, but haven't in awhile. I don't have a passport sooo... :(

I live in New York, and I've been to Ohio, Washington DC, and traveled through Pennsylvania, only making pitstops there. When I have the money, I plan to do LOTS of traveling. Which, of course, includes Iceland. ^__^

Well, you left your state, you just didn't enter another one. I counted it for completeness' sake, though.

Yeah, I quite liked living there, but it would seem small to a Sydneysider. I've come across a few people who knock it because it's not big city enough for them, but any larger and I couldn't have handled it (I'm a country girl).

I think sometimes it's good to get away from it all, and Canberra seems like a really comfy city, Sydney on the other hand..
I'll be sure to visit Canberra again sometime.

Seth: It's cold in Cali? I'm pretty sure it's colder in Jersey.


You might have me there. It is pretty cold in my little corner of Cali. I live by the bay, so we get a lot of the cold current air.

I have a rather random and perhaps silly question to those here who live in Europe.

How easy is it to drive from country to country? Do you have to stop at borders like I've done here, traveling between US and Canada? Or is it like traveling state to state here, where it's just a sign or something saying you are now entering...? Or is it a whole other experience entirely? I know it sounds silly, but I've been wondering this for awhile... XD;;

From what I've seen you can just keep driving and never even realize you're in a different country if you missed the sign. It might be different in certain countries, though, but I guess most of it is like this.

well, i've been to china, japan, and the only city in the US that i've thoroughly explored is chicago, which i just came back from yesterday at about 11 pm. and i had to go to school today. :| it was torture. i guess we stopped along the way for rest stops, but i didn't really do much in those states. what i found disgusting was how there was LITERALLY a mcdonald's on almost every block in chicago. no offense if you like mcdonald's
