    I was thinking earlier today about capital cities, and how embarrassingly few I've been to...despite having been to 14 countries I've only been to 3 capitals.

    London, capital of England.
    Valletta, capital of Malta.
    Madrid, capital of Spain.

    I should double this by the end of the year though so it's not all bad.

    How many have you been to?

    How many state capitals have you been to?

    I'll fill this in next week so I can make my bragging list longer. I'm pretty sure I've done every capital city of countries I've been to though, except the USA and Australia.

    Currently typing from Vilnius, Lithuania.

    I've only been to 6 countries, but 3 capital cities..

    Brussels, Belgium
    London, UK
    Paris, France

    Will probably get a couple more countries done next year, and likely some more capitals done naturally in the process.

    Not really that many. There are a few countries (Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Holland) that I've visited but not been to the capital of.

    I can't really be bothered to do the state capitals. I think I've been through (either as a layover when flying, or driving) quite a few, but not more than a handful.
