    Have you been to Russia

    I have never been to Russia
    Who has?

    What countries have you been to ?

    Here is the pathetic list of countries I have been to:
    U.S.A. , Canada, Scotland, England, Germany, Belgium, France


    What countries would you most like to see?

    I would of course like to go to Russia, and maybe Austrailia. I want to go everywhere actually.

    I have been to USA, Mexico, Canada, Argentina, and Uruguay. I am planning to go to Oktoberfest this year with my roommate, though!

    He-he-he... If you see my list, you won't call your list pathetic.

    Sorry for offtopic, but can I ask simply "What countries have you been?" without "to"?
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    Not unless you've actually been the countries - "hi I am Spain"

    Haven't been to Russia yet. I'm obsessed about visiting sometime this year, though . . . but my plans are gradually coming together.

    Let's see, the countries I've visited (In travel order):
    England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Canada, Mexico and several U.S. states. Not an impressive list so far - but it'll improve soon, I hope.
    If only you could see . . . what I have seen, with your eyes.

    I went in Canadian waters once.
    But other than that I have never been outside of the United States. Mainly because my faja, who's never learned another language because everyone else should learn "American."

    Nice. I'm in the same boat. Been to Canada 3 times. I will leave in September for an 8 month stint in Moscow, though.

    That's exactly how my parents are, no way in hell they would ever learn another language... We spent a month in Argentina, and my mom giggled like a schoolgirl when she said "Hola" because she thought she spoke Spanish... My little sister and I had to translate for my parents the whole time!

    I'm not sure if Japan should count, though.

    The to at the end is important in making the sentence sound right. No American would omit the to.

    Never been to Russia. But I am thinking about visiting Nefteyugansk this winter. Has anybody ever heard of this place?

    The correct written form is actually "to what countries have you been?", because the preposition modifies the noun or pronoun. Of course, most people in speech will say "what countries have you been to?"
