    Wow, 11 years in Spain is a lot, that's for sure. It is a beautiful country - if you are going to live in Europe for that many years, Spain is a good choice.

    What part of Spain were you in?

    I grew up traveling. My dad's a pilot so we traveled a lot as kids, and now, while living in Europe, I'm taking the opportunity to travel around the various EU countries. I love Ireland, France and Italy. I'm hoping to live in Germany for a while.

    I even wonder how well traveled some are in their own country. I've met way too many who have yet to be west of the Appalachians around these parts. IMO, meeting even one like that is way too many. More Americans need to get to know this great country.

    France is wonderful...Italy, too. Simply essential places to visit, IMO.

    Germany is probably a better place to live than to visit, I suspect. As a tourist there aren't many places I've been particularly impressed by, except for Berlin and a couple of smaller cities like Heidelberg.

    That's not a bad list, Tiger Bob - it looks to be about 30 countries, and I'd say that is fairly well travelled in most peoples book.

    I'm curious to see you have been to Serbia but no other Balkan states - how did you manage that?!

    I was born in England (air force brat), then came to the USA, and as an adult visited Canada, Mexico and Japan......if my job with the Airlines hadn't gone to India, I expect I would have visited a lot more countries by now.
