Default Spinoff: How many foreign countries have you visited?

I noticed from the "around the globe" thread that we have a lot of world travelers on this site.

Which foreign countries have you visited and/or lived in? And of those destinations, which one(s) would you say is a must-see?

I lived in Kazan, Russia for 3 months. I also did a little touring around Moscow while I was there too.

Belgium (Brussels)
This was just for a few hours during a layover, but I got to walk through the city a bit and visit the cathedral. The cathedral has a really dramatic baroque pulpit. The base shows depicting Adam and Eve cast out of Eden by the angel and toward death, while Mary and a toddler Jesus are on the "roof," I guess to represent the new "Eve" and "Adam" conquering death. Wikipedia has a good picture of the base. (Make sure to expand it -- it's a huge photo!) It's kind of hard to make out, but a skeleton representing death is clinging to the tree toward the right-hand side, and is reaching toward Adam and Eve with its left hand. I know the point of this thread is to just give a list, but I think the pulpit looks really cool

Italy (Sorrento, Positano, Pompeii, Rome)

*whistles at some of the lists*

I've been to

(1) The US

(2) Cambodia- Recommend: Everything was so cheap! but I felt sad on some days because the poverty is everywhere
Korea: Recommend: Jeju, is a tiny island off the coast of Korea. It's called the "honeymoon island" and it's where newly married Korean couples go to learn abt.....stuff.

(3) The Philippines

(4) Japan (currently living here)

Next stop....Fiji (maybe, if not, Australia or NZ)
