I went to the UK, Switzerland and Italy in 2017.

I've previously been to Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.

I see Norway listed above, I've often been there but it must have been before Norway joined the EU.

I think you should include the non-EU EEA countries so that we can still play this game next year and then I could add Greenland too.
That would be an interesting place to visit (after flying over it so many times).

BTW, Australia was in this year's Eurovision !

Let's see. UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Italy, Greece, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Cyprus. Three of those to live, four on work visits, the rest on vacation (thank you, Interail!)

Also, while they were all still part of Yugoslavia: Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia.

Not sure how many of those are in or out of the EU. I haven't visited any of the Baltic states, Finland, or any of the rest of the former Eastern bloc except Slovakia (although that was only as far as Bratislava, a 45-minute drive from Vienna) and the Yugoslav republics. One day...

I've been to all 10 provinces but none of the 3 territories and 35/50 of the US states.

Ooh. Let's do African countries!

Morocco, Senegal, Liberia, Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire, Tunisia and then further south, Namibia, SA, Lesotho, Botswana, Angola, Zaire, Zambia and (briefly and illegally) Mozambique.

Rail trip - a taste for those who've not been to Europe.
