    Furthest I've ever lived from my birthplace was in Montrose County, Colorado. I have visited So. Korea, Germany, and the British Isles. Since all those flights left from Los Angeles, Calif, I have to say the British Isles was furthest.

    I was born in Hungary and I traveled to Oklahoma, by three planes. I made some photos about the GPS screen, on the large plane that traveled to Houston from Munich.

    I always read that as having traveled to many places in Europe but too many to list separately in a short post.

    You when the grand prize, traveler!

    I've never been to any place in Europe but I have one child who has been and is planning, as we speak, to visit many locations for her business she owns. When people list many places they've visited worldwide I always wonder if it was for business, pleasure, or as a child of, say, military parents.

    The farthest I have traveled is Japan (navy father).

    I envy all of you being able to travel. I was born in a small rural country town, lived in New Mexico which I loved, trips to Mexico via cruises. Wish I could have visited New York, seen the seasons change in new England but at this age don't see it happening. But loved reading about all of the different places y'all have been.

    There are specially designated highways that take you winding through the forests of Vermont and New Hampshire during the peak of broadleaf color change. It is a riot of color that defies any description I could come up with. Mother Nature at her most gorgeous.

    I feel like a ringer (hmm, gotta look up where that word came from), but...
    I was in the US Air Force and was enlisted flight crew for 15 yrs, which included Desert Storm.
    I've been around the world over a dozen times. That's not counting the many flights going north / south, like Iceland, Alaska, etc.
    I've been to over 30 countries - I've forgotten the exact number and where I put the list of countries.
