I've been to 11 on that list and will add two more in the next 6 months (Tokyo and Rome). I'd sure like to see several of the others someday.

Olympic season is upon us once again...

I think it's safe to say Sochi will have a very low count of SSP forumers having visited the place. Moscow itself has the lowest count on the poll with only 12 forumers having been there.

I've only been to Atlanta, Los Angeles, Montreal and St. Louis.

I've been to Salt Lake City International Airport, but I never left the airport, so that doesn't count.

All except Moscow. I'm old and my business was global. Spent 15% of life in a plane.

Salt Lake City

I was driving in to SLC the night they announced they had gotten the '02 Winter Olympics. Lights, banners on buildings, and IIRC, fireworks! It was a special moment, to be sure!
