    I don't normally travel outside the United States because there're a lot of states I haven't even been to. However, the only time I have travelled to outside the United States was about 7 months ago, which I went back to my home country, China. It's been 15 years I haven't been back, which was nice that I got a chance to go back to visit. How often do you travel outside the United States?

    I have never traveled outside the United States, though I would very much like to. There are so many places I would like to visit. I have traveled around the United States a little bit, whether is was to live there or just to visit. The states I have lived in are Kentucky, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The states I have visited for various reasons are Ohio and Chicago.

    I don't travel much outside of the U.S. Since I grew up as a military brat (dependent), I traveled through much of my childhood. As an adult, my goal became to stay put and actually enjoy an area.

    For those of you who don't know, a common 'feeling' for children who grow in the military is to continue to move around a lot instead of staying one place. I did this frequently in my 20s.

    I've only traveled out of the US one time and that was almost ten years ago. I'd love to do more traveling but there's always the issue of time and money. But like you mentioned, there are plenty of states and it would be nice to travel cross country. I live in California and I've only ever been to Oregon and Washington. I'd love to one day be able to visit my relatives on the East Coast.

    I go to Europe twice a year. I love it there but the flight from California is so long. That's the downside.

    I haven't traveled a lot or at all for the past couple of years. But this 2014, I will make sure to go out and see the world. I plan to see the UK this time.

    I'm from the UK but lived in the US for a bit a while back. Until I lived there I didn't really get why Americans didn't get out of their country more often. But the US is a huge country with entirely different characteristics between states, time zones and coast lines. So I understand why you would want to see more of it.

    At the same time, it's the same language (in the main), currency, political system, talk shows and so on. So getting out there offers a lot of new experiences. But it's easy for me to say - the UK is a pretty small place.

    Ashlee, I visited almost all these destinations that you have been mentioned in you post except Kilauea. I never get a chance to visit this region ever during my USA trip. Would you like to tell me some important things about this place?

    I usually travel to the Philippines 1-2 times per year. My wife is from there, so it's nice to see all her family and friends. There are a lot of beautiful places to visit there as well, so every time we go, we try to visit some place new. I would also like visit Thailand soon.

    Philippines is also a beautiful Asian country. I have been there once in my whole traveling life many years ago. This country is filled with awesome places. Its most visited attractions are; Tubbataha Reef, Mayon Volcano, Malapascua Island, Chocolate Hills and Banaue Rice Terraces. Expect these beautiful places it also offers a lot of other spots.

    I would love to go out of the country because I love traveling but there is the issue of money. It's expensive enough to travel out of state. There are only a few places on my bucket list but it'd be nice to see other places too because I'm open to almost anything these days. I almost went to France for a field trip in high school but I ended up not doing it because it involved skiing.

    I've never left the United States and it sucks. I have a brother who is married and lives in London, so hopefully I'll get to visit him soon. He's already been to most (if not all) of Europe. I have a lot of catching up to do in terms of travel experience.
