    Just the good Ol' USA. I've visited a few, but never lived.

    Well you know I heard you and maybe a few other folks here got around a bit so I thought I’d ask.

    Although I lived in Boston for a year I was pretty young and I don’t remember it at all really. Should that still count?

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Oops, forgot quote. Doesn’t really matter.

    I don't think we're talking about extended stays or holidays or trips or vacations, or that time you took a train through Romania on your way to Greece.

    I think the OP is asking about countries we actually lived in for a while, not countries we visited.

    Two countries for me: Australia and Canada. However, I did spend 5 hours in New Zealand.

    Plenty short-term but for between six montha and nine years:
    Spain. Holland. Zaire (now the DRC). Botswana.
    Visited 26 countries in total. These days I can't be bothered to go any further than the next county.

    The US and Germany.

    I 'lived' for less than a year in Saudi Arabia and Iraq, but I would hardly call that living.

    Does living in denial count? If not, just 'Murica.
