This one was gacked from nwhyte. The rules are simply to note those places where one has stayed away from home for a night or more. If you have stayed somewhere more than once, with a gap between, mark it with a star.

*Dumfries, Scotland
Basel, Switzerland
Leukerbad, Switzerland
Oxford, England
*Dublin, Ireland
Lyneham, England
Chester, England
Heathrow, England
Somewhere over Siberia (we got a bed each, anyway. For airliner values of 'bed')
Central Tokyo, Japan
Taito-ku City, Tokyo, Japan
Yokohama, Japan (2 different hotels walking distance apart)
Akita, Japan
Hiroshima, Japan
Kyoto, Japan
Kawaguchiko, Japan
Narita, Japan
Oslo, Norway
Wokingham, England
Maynooth, Ireland
Melbourn, England (yes, our house is covered by that map)

I think that's all. It's a most impressive list by my standards - none of that is business travel, but nine of those locations were due to the one trip to Japan.

ETA: Added Oxford (thanks silly_swordsman) and a plane.

Yes. It's a different county, and the opposite hemisphere.

It was my company's Xmas do - and the options were taxi home (cheap) or overnight stay at the venue (hassle-free). It's fun staying in a place where a number of the rooms are individual efforts by TV designers, especially when said designers then have to work with the limitations imposed by the building being a former water mill. And I like being able to topple upstairs when finally partied-out, rather than having to then call a taxi which won't actually be available for 45 minutes, etc. etc.

We'd stayed there once before, back when we still lived in London.
