Where I've Been

January 25th, 2010

I am preparing to travel to Mumbai, India, to deliver a keynote lecture, and it occurred to me that I have certainly gotten around. So here I compile a list of those places to which I have traveled. I count a place as visited if I have slept a night there.

First, states in the USA:

  1. Arizona
  2. Arkansas
  3. California
  4. Colorado
  5. Connecticut
  6. Florida
  7. Georgia
  8. Hawaii
  9. Illinois
  10. Kansas
  11. Maryland
  12. Massachusetts
  13. Michigan
  14. Missouri
  15. Montana
  16. Nebraska
  17. Nevada
  18. New Jersey
  19. New Mexico
  20. New York
  21. New Hampshire
  22. North Carolina
  23. Oklahoma
  24. Oregon
  25. Pennsylvania
  26. Tennessee
  27. Texas
  28. Utah
  29. Vermont
  30. Washington
  31. Wyoming

For the world as a whole, I shall specify countries and cities:

Canada: Calgary

England: all over the place

Scotland: Edinburgh, Glasgow

Ireland: Dublin

France: Paris, Biarritz, Cannes, Valenciennes


Spain: Madrid, Barcelona

Portugal: Lisbon

Switzerland: Basel, Zurich, Geneva

Netherlands: Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Maastricht

Belgium: Brussels

Germany: Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Munich, Frankfort, Darmstadt, Mainz, Trier

Austria: Vienna, Linz

Italy: Milan, Rome, Naples, Florence

Greece: Athens

Israel: Tel Aviv

Azores Islands

Japan: Tokyo

China: Hong Kong


India: Mumbai

Australia: Sydney, Melbourne

Now, this isn’t a terribly long list; there are tons of people who’ve traveled to more places, and certainly more exotic places than this. But it’s still a long list, especially when you consider that at least half of these places I visited as an invited speaker. Moreover, there are a number of places that I’ve been to but didn’t spend the night. And of course, I’m sure that I’ve forgotten some places.
