Where I Have Been

Just saw a link on Fark to a cool little Tool from World 66 that lets you easily plot a map of where all you have been in your travels. So of course I did so… I used my memory and also looked through the Visa’s in all my old passports going back to childhood. Here is what I came up with:

Note: On the world level they count Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands as countries, and on the Europe level they break the United Kingdom up into its parts… I wouldn’t have done either of those, but I’ll stick with how they set it up.

Countries of the World: Canada, United States, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, France, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries of Europe: France, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, England

States of the USA: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachussetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin [Edit: See my comment in the comments section for revised map based on new information.]

Provinces of Canada: Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec

And that’s it! I need to get back into the grove of the random trips so as to fill in some more! Like I’m not sure how I missed Kentucky and Michigan! I have a call in to my mom to see if I visited either of them as a child and don’t remember. Those are the only two east of the Mississippi that I haven’t been in. And the next random trip will fill out Mexico, whenever we are actually able to get to it…

Anybody else want to share those? After you do it, they give a chunk of HTML which I think (although I am not sure) will work if you just cut and paste it into the comments here. [Edit: Looks like the site might be farked now… if it doesn’t work, try again later…] [Edit again: Farking has subsided, and pasting the HTML it gives you works fine except for a little extra code that shows up, but that is fine, it works.]

Of the regular readers here, I bet Ivan can do best on contries worldwide. Not sure if he is also who would do the best on states.
