Where have all our OmniNerds been?
Never lived outside of the US but did very little travel to Cozumel, senior class trip and Nuevo Laredo,Mexico on a mission trip!
The big ones …
Aside from my first instinctive answer of "your mom’s house"…
…the Army has sent me:
4 years Germany
6 months Macedonia
2 months Belgium
3 weeks Czech Republic
2 weeks Kosovo (Bosnia & Herzegovina)
U.K., Ireland, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Greece, Bulgaria, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Poland, Hungary, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica.
And I have been to Texas, which counts as a country in my book.
I would never have gotten the chance to visit many of these places without the U.S. Army, an organization filled with opportunities to travel to many good places as well as a few bad ones. If you get the chance, post to Germany. Every 4-day weekend is another country checked off your list.
I suppose I should answer my own question.
Countries Lived In:
Additional Countries Visited (not counting airport stops):
Lets see…lived in Germany on and off for 9 years as a young’n, then 3.5 more when I grew up. Did a 3 month stint in Kosovo, and am in the middle of my 27th month in Iraq. Brief stops in Ireland, Kuwait, and Macedonia going to or coming back from the aforementioned. Recreationally visited Hong Kong, Mexico, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France, Luxembourg, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
If the good Lord is willin, I’ll be underwater in Belize in 2 months time. If mother Army is willing, I’ll have added another 12 months in Iraq 2 years from now, and will add Korea, Japan or Afghanistan to the list after that.
I have personally traveled very little (Cancun for spring break one year) but work has taken me to the following places:
East: Kazakhstan, Singapore
Scandinavia:Oslo, Copenhagen, Amsterdam
Europe: London, Germany, France
Africa: Gabon, Lagos
