NA, SA, Europe, Asia.

My brother, parents and I briefly explored a family trip to Antarctica like 10 years ago. Too expensive. I feel like all you get out of it is a "Been to Antarctica" brag because it's not like there's a lot to do there.

I am from Germany.

I travel a lot of Europe, been to Benelux, Scotland, Ireland, England, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, France, Monaco, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic. Still a lot more European countries I haven't been to and many I have traveled multiple times to for both work and leisure, and many I plan to return to, for e.g. I love Scotland and Ireland.

Been to Africa, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique.

Been to North America, U.S.

Haven't been to Asia/Pacific yet, I mean I know Eurasia and I have been to Russia, so technically Asia, but I don't count it personally, since I did not go to the parts of Russia where Asian ethnic groups live (i.e central and eastern parts, north of China), I was only in St. Petersburg and Moscow.

I live in North America, and have been to Europe (France, UK), Asia (India), and Africa (South Africa). I've been to a couple Caribbean countries (Cuba, Jamaica), so I also put South America based on the thread rules—but I don't think that should count.

Been to every continent except Antarctica (didn't know this was considered a continent to be honest).
I've been travelling through southamerica the last three months, which was the first time for me. Yesterday I just arrived in Puerto Rico - second time in Northamerica (beautiful but expensive as hell. Think only iceland was a bit more expensive)

All of them except Antarctica which is on my list. I went to the Canary Islands in Africa, so that's kinda an asterisk, but it exists.

Yo just follow the rules lol
In reality we could just separate everything by what tectonic plate it lands on
Dude, there's very clear definitions of the borders of each of the mentioned continents, why make up your own rules? What for?
Why should anyone who's been to Moscow tick "Asia" and anyone who's been to Guatemala tick "South America". What's to gain other than ... well ... making the results wrong?

At the Ural and Caucasus.

Like, do you really think there's so many people who couldn't pinpoint whether they've been to the European side of Russia or the Asian part? Like, if you've been to Saint Petersburg, you've not been to Asia. Period.
If someone's been to Georgia (the country, not the state) or Istanbul, we can talk about which continent they should tick - and even in the case of the latter, there's a very clear line :P

Just North America and Europe. I’d have also visited Africa, but that trip got called off due to election violence in the country I was supposed to visit.

Hoping to knock Iceland off my list next year.

Just Europe and Australia. Didn't count a Singapore layover.

Hoping to go to a different continent next year. Just not sure which one.

All except Antarctica. Don't think that's much of an achievement in this age of mass travel
There was a guy who won the lottery in Ohio or something and said he was finally going to be able to go back to Maine for the first time. 90% of the world hasn't left their own state/province/city let alone continent.

Weird that the OP associates Central America with South America. I'm Panamanian, so we're pretty damn close to South America anyway.

Used to live in USA, been to Canada and Mexico.

Currently live in the UK, been to a lot of European countries.

Been to Japan, Thailand, Korea and Taiwan.

Have no real desire to go to Australia. I would like to go to places like Egypt though. Maybe Antartica when global warming makes it not as cold LOL.

In my first 33 years I have been primarily in North America, with a couple of trips to Europe for work,

In the last 11 months, work ahead sent me to São Paulo and Seoul, knotching off two more continents

Live in Europe. Been to North and South America, Asia and Australia. Never been to Africa but Egypt is on the shortlist for destinations in the next few years (specifically when their new national museum opens).

My girlfriend’s one of the few people I know who’s been to every continent, since she went to Antarctica when she was in the Navy.

I have been on two round the world trips and recommend it to anyone, it was very good for broadening the mind and good for my mental health (the 2nd trip pulled me right out of depression) but of course that's much easier said than done. You can do it on a much cheaper budget than you would imagine, but having no ties holding you back in the first place is the hard part.

Europe and Asia are on the same continental plate.

People view what is and isn't a continent differently depending on the culture and country you live in.

Goofed, I should have only listed 2- North America and Asia (Japan).

I have not been to South America- Been to Central America which broadly speaking is part of the North.
I’m calling bullshit on the 3 that claim to have visited Antarctica. That place is only slightly more visited than outer space.
I have a that was stationed in Antarctic. Not claiming his stay as my own, just it people do go there.

If New Zealand counts as Australia (haha suck it NZ) then I’ve been to all of them except South America and Antarctica.

Mostly due to being in the military.

North America - Mexico (birth) and USA (home)

Africa -had the opportunity to live in Sudan for a year, and took it. Awesome people, really hope they get a new government in place soon, they deserve it.

Europe - Did a Mediterranean Cruise, France, Spain and Italy, and hated the cruise part but loved the cities. Rome was amazing, and I hope I can visit it again someday. If I was rich, I would definitely live there.
