Nearly half of my posts in this forum are from my home, and nearly half of my posts in this forum (including this one) are from my dormitory. All I have to do is wait for Winter Break or something, when I will likely travel to another region, and I think I might qualify. It's a shame that I can't even see my own IP address on my own posts...

According to the very long, very detailed English-Wikipedia page, it's usually used to mean any jurisdiction of local government, although it can also refer to the jurisdiction of a count. Outside of anglophone nations (i.e. English-speaking nations), "county" refers to sub-national jurisdictions that have a synonymous relation to its nation as traditional anglophone counties have with their anglophone nations.
On the very brief, seemingly neglected Spanish-Wikipedia page, it either refers to a jurisdiction of a count, or a municipality of "países angloparlantes," i.e. "Anglo-governed nations" such as Great Britain, the United States of America, and Canada. It also states that "counties" in those nations are equivalent to municipalities in Mexico and Columbia.
Since there's apparently some anglophone bias in the word "county," but we don't mean to exclude non-anglophones, how about we just say that, to meet the qualifications of the Traveler's Badge, one need only travel to three different whatever-the-smallest-jurisdiction-larger-than-a-city-is places. This is all the more why I don't like my own mother tongue...
so sorry for the necro post but im going to use this thread for what it was ment for so we have a layover in portland and im staying at my cosuns so ill be up dateing more. sorry for the bad spelling spell check wont work
I went on vacation and went to Ventura and Santa Barbara. This post is from Ventura and my posts a few days ago are from San Diego. Tomorrow I'll probably post in LA so that will be my final city/county.

That's figurative for anyone who has no creativity, not an excuse to completely mess up spelling to the point where no one can tell what you are saying. BTW, if you have the badge, you can post here still to get overachiever. AND you can double post here...right?
