Abroad :

1) How many countries have you visited ? - 7
USA (SFO - Bay Area , Albuquerque , Washington DC , Los Angeles)
France (Nice , Paris)
Monaco (Monte Carlo)
HongKong
Singapore

2) Among the countries you visited how many driven on ?
None

3) Which is your favourite country ?
Singapore - Since it was my first foreign country that I visited so perhaps the bias and also their airline SQ aka Singapore Airlines. In general the discipline and cleanliness struck me and also the fact that most citizens are aware that this discipline and cleanliness starts from themselves and not the local municipality. Where there are people there is crime etc and Singapore is no exception but then the rate of corruption and crime is phenomenally less than good ol' India. But then again so is the population. But all in all its my favourite country I visited.

4) Which is the country you loved driving on abroad?
NA


5) Which is the state you loved driving on India?
None. All states have flawed roads. Well but thinking again I love the patch of the NH-4 from Kagal (Maharashtra) to Belgaum (Karnataka) and on the same NH-4 from Chitradurga to Bangalore (upto NICE ring road exit). The drive is just thrilling. So majority of it would in Karnataka.

Big Mishtik. I was counting / stats'ing at a taluk level - looks like at this rate I can't do much even in 40 years ( I've been traveling just for the last 1.5 years though ) - here are my stats

Other Countries : The US of A, Mauritius ( no driven no license 1.5 years back )

States in India :

Goa ( driven )
Karnataka ( 96 of the 176 taluks, roughly 55% of KA; 90% of taluks below the Goa - Hubli - Bellary line; all by driving )
Tamil Nadu ( driven ) ( 50 of the 218 taluks, roughly 23% of TN )
Kerala ( driven )
Andhrapradesh (driven )
Orissa
WB

My goal was do it talukwise across states - another lifetime perhaps.

Cheers.
