    Well, darling, I'd say it's an attitude more than anything else, so a well-traveled person is one who has made the time and space to travel a bit adventurously at least once every year, and has traveled thoughtfully, whether to one place or dozens, doesn't isolate himself or treat local people as if they were in a zoo, would rather walk around a city and miss a few "sights" than be bused frantically from landmark to tourist trap, and doesn't greet every new food or experience with suspicion.

    I wouldn't consider myself well-traveled...yet. I have traveled, but not widely - minimally within the US (I've been to 14 states other than my own, although I've just passed through some of them), and again minimally in England, France, and Spain.

    I'm hoping to add another continent or two to my travels, and my dream is to travel to, and eventually retire to one of the beautiful spots my beloved and I fell for while watching House Hunters International.

    Well traveled is when you realize that customs are different but people are the same everywhere. ( I think). If I'm wrong, then I'm not well enough traveled.

    A couple of different countries. Enough to realize that all I want to travel for is to see new territory and see if its actually easier to invest as a capitalist in other countries. That and there are some customs I approve of that are impractical or disapproved of in Wyoming. IE, bikinis and nudism. I find the female body pleasing, even when I'm not lusting after one. The Creator does beautiful work.

    I've seen the geysers in Yellowstone, I've been all over France and I've seen the Everglades in Florida. I've had breakfast with that damn mouse in Florida. I've been to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, several caves in the Ozarks and I now live on the front range of the Rockies. Everywhere I live, we explore our new region on day trips. I hope to see the Grand Canyon very soon.

    Lately, we don't travel so much as we just move to a cool new place every few years.

    I don't know what makes a person well-traveled. There is a lot I've seen, but I've barely skimmed the surface of what there is to be seen.

    Visiting a couple different continents and several different countries should qualify as well traveled, I should think.

    I'm semi-traveled. Been to Canada and Mexico, and most of the US states. Lived in 4 different states.

    Travelling thru our own woods here at home. I think I find Oz out there every now and then :)

    I agree with (((Jayden's Aunt)))... "well" travelled in the sense of touring shouldn't be rushed just to check off a list that you've "seen that, done that" it should mean that you absorbed the flavor and culture.

    I've been to Malta if that counts.

    I am reminded of I think Henry David Thoreau's quote that he had travelled extensively in Concord.

    So I am not well travelled. A well-travelled one is he or she who has seen another country, another continent, and has spent a good percentage of his life (30-50%) away from the area of one's growing up.
