    Are we counting China and Hong Kong separately these days? I was in Hong Kong before '97 when it was still under the Brits. If we count them separately, then 9 (not counting the US). I voted wrong, because I voted in the 5-8 category.

    Canada
    Mexico
    Brazil
    China
    Hong Kong
    France
    Italy
    St. Thomas & St. John, USVI (are US territories separate from the US? I say yes)
    St. Kitts/Nevis

    Is Monaco separate from France? If so, then 10.

    I've also been to numerous other Caribbean Islands (some several times) but am not including them on this list because I was only there off a "lame cruise ship". I've been to St. Martin about 5 times I think, but only as a cruise ship destination.


    Different government, different laws, free internet, human rights, need a passport going there, different visa regulations, yeah everyone should consider it a separate country.

    oooo even with the weird criteria i still stand at 16. Very exciting!
    I am a big traveller though and always try and go somewhere new at least every couple of years. I tend to save, save, save for months on end and then go travelling somewhere for a few weeks. The most recent place on the list was Italy which was great fun. Went to Milan for a few days to visit a friend who has moved out there and then took the train down to Rome to do a bit of sightseeing as I couldn't leave without having been there.The Colosseum was awesome! The Basilica of San Giovanni is also a good photographic opportunity - definitely worth a look!

    Either way, its a wicked city and I would whole-heartedly recommend it. Try and stay in an apartment in the centre of Rome so you can get to most places on foot. As public transport I found to be quite tricky without good knowledge of the language.
    To be fair I'm not really that great at tubes/buses etc in England so I have no hope when abroad!
