Cool I'd like to go to Oslo next if I return to Norway some time. Yeah get as much as you can in 14 days. On your trip you gonna be flying between countries.? If so Norwegian Air Shuttle are a very good airline to use, only problem is that they don't fly to Estonia.

Mexico
USA
UK, and just immediately around London

That's it.  

However I can at least brag about living in and traveled to all but 3 states in Mexico and ditto with all the states worth mentioning in the CONUS. So at least I can say I know two countries very damn well, and have lived on both sides of the border for quite some time.

I had a very very fast visit to London once, and I'm dying to see the rest of Europe but I'm effing broke and the way things are looking that situation won't be getting better anytime soon

It is a British Overseas Territory , although the Islands' administrative headquarters are situated in Auckland New Zealand, about 5310km (3300 miles) away.

Ah. I remember the Rhine, at the border between Liechtenstein and CH is narrow with gravel banks in the middle. You can walk down onto the "no man's land" in the middle and have a BBQ. Not so interesting though as we had every right to cross anyway!

Cayman Islands (British Overseas Territory)
Mexico
South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

Hehe, you did some hard time over there?!

JAT cancelled a flight to Dubrovnik. A taxi driver said Psssst want a taxi. We said yes, and at $100 for 4 to Dubrovnik it seemed a bargain. On the outskirts of Belgrade, said taxi driver appeared to swear at a policeman at a traffic merge. About 4 ks later, two police cars arrived with blues and twos and pulled us over. They took him to a little police station in a forest and from about 100 m away you could hear the "questioning".

Then they decided to take us down town and during that they noticed that we had two video cameras. Mine was the old Sony that needed a player and the battery in the other one had failed so they could not see what our American comrade had filmed either. So they decided to charge us with espionage and were offering 16 years!!!

After about 4 hours of this farce, my wife remembered the invitation to the conference we were trying to go to. "Ah, they said, do you know this Professor E********"? Yes I do. Ah well in this case we will let you off. But you must get a video camera licence. And where do we get one of those. "At any police station or information centre". Well this is a police station, could we get one here" Ah, not THIS police station. We later found Dubrovnik overflowing with German tourists sporting videocameras and no, there was no such thing as a video licence. That was 1985.

In 2010, the same organization held its meeting in Belgrade with the invitation from the same now Emeritus Professor E********. I went with some trepidation and it was the best meeting in the something like 20 meetings of that group I have been too. And Belgrade was very nice indeed. people were super - and so are the 2010 Belgrade taxi drivers!

The only sad thing was to see the damage to buildings from the NATO air raids. most repaired, but took me back to WW II and its aftermath. And yes, during the raids, I was able to watch on TV a bomb being "posted" into that central police station.

Oh ten thousand apologies Sir Quokka. How could I forget my visit to Rottnest and your cute little brethren? They are sweet. But riding rusty bicycles in soft sand is quite a sweat.

Never been to the much much closer Tom Thumb Islands though, nor to Kangaroo Island although there is an outcrop there I DO want to visit. In the UK though I have been to the Farnes Islands, Lindisfarne and even sat on St Mary's through a complete tidal cycle.
