^^^I went to college only about 30 minutes from the Iowa state line, yet never bothered just driving up there for whatever reason.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Has anyone been to Iowa? So far it's a total whiff on the lists posted, even though most of the states around it are pretty common.

Poor Iowa.
I was in Iowa for a youth group trip forever ago. We were at UI and didn't do anything that wasn't at the event. Pretty much everything I remember about driving in places that weren't Iowa City was what you'd expect from Iowa: farms and not much else.

I've been to the Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore (iirc, this may just be a city state... maybe not a country) and the USA.

On my wishlist: Hungary, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Norway, the UK, France and Antarctica... before it melts!! :D

In chronological order it would be Colombia (my home country), Cuba, Germany, Spain and Mexico (where I currently reside). I've never been to the US or any other English-language country, shame on me.

Currently in Canada. I've also been to England, Scotland, S. Korea, China briefly, Thailand, and the Cayman Islands.

One of the chaperones on this trip has been to 49 countries and 49 states! :eek: I'm so jealous!
Okay, I can add Croatia, Montenegro, and Germany to the list.

Outside of the US, it's England, Ireland, Germany, and Austria. And Turkey if you count the airport.

12 States too.
Also France now.

^...hmmm. I went to Germany on the class trip my junior year, and we spent a day in Munich, but I don't remember much of anything. There was the Frauenkirche, and then a church that'd been partially destroyed during the war, and so they scraped the rubble away, left the roof off and made it into a war memorial instead.

...that's all. It's been twenty years-----------whole trip seems more like a crazy dream, now, than an actual experience from my youth.

Let’s go again! Sounds like we both need an updated trip. I’d love to see more of Germany. I feel like I just dipped my toe in it.

Cool. Pack your bags-----------the two of us can knock over my store with kitchen knives and slingshots, then make for the Canadian border. Come over to my place in twenty minutes; I've got the scary Hallowe'en masks and balaclavas all ready.

With your brains and my beauty, we'll be unstoppable.

Perf! Omw. Later, Michigan. I’ll bring the fake tattoos and balloon animal making kit. Gotta hustle for some cash.
