Only in Germany I have seen football live at World Cup 2006 and in Croatia a 7-a-side tournament.

Like most of you, I want to be able to see as much of the world as possible, it's just a matter of getting the time & money smiley: mad .

The list of where I have been is one of the most disappointing on this thread:
Wales (born & lived there for 2 years)
England (lived for the rest of my life so far)
Scotland (can't remember where)
France
Spain (Mallorca)
Cornwall (if for any non-FIFA reason it counts)


There are plenty of places that I'd like to visit, but the countries/regions at the top of the list (no particular order) would be:
East Asia (mainly Japan, Hong Kong, and North Korea (just to be one of the few who can say they've been))
Scandinavia (any/all countries)
Any of the German-speaking countries (mainly Switzerland)
UAE (Dubai)
USA
Canada
New Zealand
Ireland
Bhutan
Andorra


Apart from one or two of the places I listed, we can establish that heat is over-rated in my book smiley: wink...
