Have you been where the Queen's been?

Have you been where the Queen's been?

Her Maj has been to 116 countries. The BBC has a fun thing here to see how many of those you've been to.

Have a go!

Tell us how you got on. I only got 30. Obviously I don't hang out in the right circles. :twisted:

28 for me.

On the plus side, I've been to three that she hasn't (Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos) and one that she can never go to because it doesn't exist any more - East Germany. :-D (OK, she's been to Potsdam, Dresden and Leipzig, but only after reunification.)

Well, I'm sure you've been to plenty of places she hasn't been too. I could make a list of where I've been and she hasn't. It was only Dave who started the thing about where she hadn't been. :twisted:

Does it count if she wasn't the Queen at the time? :twisted:

Taiwan is a tricky one politically for heads of state to visit :-)
