Where have you been? by kristinekm on 29 May 2005 1:05am
 
Now that it's almost holiday time, what about making some nice (hopefully) long lists of places you have visited (you ought to have slept there at least one night)

Denmark (My home country)
Aarhus (where I live and study), Copenhagen (the capital) Randers (Where I was born). You probably don't know the city. It has about 50,000 inhabitants. And then some towns or villages I'm positive you don't know (Ribe, Faaborg, Hirtshals, Løjt (the second letter is a Scandinavian letter and should look like an o with a / across it) Kirkeby, Nykøbing Mors)

Norway
Countless places

Sweden
Countless places

Germany
- Berlin x 3
- The Harz
- Bonn
- Cologne

Italy
- Rome x 2

France
- Paris x 2

UK
- London
(I've planned to make a roundtrip in the UK this summer)

By the way I'm 21 I guess that counts when you count the places you have visited

happy counting
Kristine

I haven't been anywhere very exotic, unless you count these places in the south-west of Western Australia:
Albany
Margarate River
Pemberton
Denmark (not the country, there is a little town by this name)
Collie
Esperance
Busselton
I also went with my family around Tasmania almost 10 years ago. We visited going to places like Davenport, Bernie, Zeehan, Hobart, Port Arthur and Lanceston. It was just a fantastic state to go. Although it would be great to visit the rest of Australia and see the world!

It all sounds very exotic to me. I've never been to Australia, so it's all relative.
