That's ... 14.
US states I've been to, properly: Kentucky, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Georgia (the last time we discussed this on this thread, I forgot I went into Georgia for a day, which is just ridiculous as I went there to see one of my very closest friends!)

US states I've been to airports in: California, Illinois, Virginia

None of my brothers want to listen to me. They listen to what their friends listen to.

My 15-year-old brother is alright. He doesn't listen to much, but it's usually pretty good. He's got The Who and EITS on his list.

Yeah, I think that it's mostly just epic phailure. There are some good people there, I'm sure, but they just get outshouted by the idiots. to Americans here.

I've only been to Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. How pathetic is that? I want to do the Great Ocean Road through to South Australia and the ferry down to Tassie this year if I can find anybody who wants to come with me (and in the case of the Great Ocean Road, can actually, you know, DRIVE). I'd love to go to WA. Perth sounds really nice. 2 hours and 200 years behind, but nice.

Melbourne is the best city I have ever been to. Wellington is second. Wellington would be first if it hadn't torn up its trams. That's what gives Melbourne the edge. I say that not out of my usual bias, but out of the fact that it really does make the city more livable.
Yeah, Adelaide is seriously seriously meh. The only thing it has going for it is the Barossa Valley (mmmm vineyards )

Can't you drive yet?

Of the states I listed, 12 were from driving. The other two were Texas and Florida, both of which I was in for a week (Dallas and Orlando) for a school business thing.

Hated Dallas, felt OK about Orlando.

I'm not exaggerating, it's genuinely sad.
YES.

IT IS SO FUCKING DEPRESSING.

I barely got out of there without slitting my wrists. It is such a complete fucking sad shithole. It makes Huntly look like the Year-round Happy Cheery Rockin'-on Festival Town.

I'd nominate Chicago, personally.
NYC > Chicago, from someone who has lived in both.

Bye.

Oh wow, Bangkok! I'd love to go there - it just seems like there's so much history and tradition there.

Asia's fun, but not as fun if you're asian - you just get treated like a local and get asked for directions

I have an unnatural, sport inspired hate of NYC, so there's that.

I spent 5 days in Massachusetts. Just saw Boston; loved it.

Spent a little over a month in Tennessee. The state itself sucks, but I spent most of my time in Franklin, outside Nashville, and it's a nice town.

Spent a day in Kentucky, mainly at Mammoth Cave. Fun, but dear God, the accents are terrible. Way to have just crawled out of your shack in the forest, guys. Spent another day in Georgia, visiting a friend in Rome, an hour from Atlanta. Didn't really see much of Georgia per se but had a lovely time with said friend.

My Geography teacher in grade 12 was this old woman who'd been EVERYWHERE and done EVERYTHING, the kind of lady who'd lived in the Outback for a decade, gone to Burma before military rule, etc. She said the only place in the world where she has ever genuinely feared for her life was when she passed through Georgia.

It was somewhere we drove through heading up to Brisbane. We stopped for breakfast and were ultimately scrambling for the airport because it was so sad.
