    All over the world and it's certainly something i would encourage everyone to do! The country you live in is only a small part of the vast world we live in! It's good to get out there and see this magnificent planet we live on!

    For a long time (until the kids arrived!) I would work and save for the next plane ticket.
    I've been to about 50 countries, and have lived/worked in New Zealand, England, France, Turkey, and Taiwan.  My twelve year old has been to about 10, and my one year old has been to 5!
    We still have a lot of catching up with my parents to do-- I'm not sure about my dad, but my mother has been to well over 100 countries.
    My number hasn't been going up much lately-- I seem to be revisiting the same ones..

    As a resident of New Zealand's southernmost city - Invercargill - travelling overseas can be a bit of a daunting prospect as travelling time within New Zealand to get from Invercargill, to say Auckland International Airport, can take as long as a flight from London to New York.
    But that aside - yes - we (my partner Lyn and I) have travelled quite a bit. We went to the San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego in the USA and across the border into northern Mexico in the early '90s; to the UK and Europe (7 countries) in 1995 for 7 weeks; and more recently we did a motorcycle tour of Europe (14 countries) in August/September last year. In between those trips we also managed to get away to Australia a couple of times, Fiji a couple of times and Rarotonga once.
    If you have never had the chance to travel outside your home or native country, I thoroughly recommend that you do all you can to get away. Travel is totally, totally inspiring. You get the chance to meet new people, visit new places and experience and see things that you may only ever had read about or seen on TV.
    Go for it!
    India is our next destination in a couple of years time - or maybe the eastern seaboard of the USA, then Canada - who knows?
