World Traveler

Besides the years spent growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia, Obama traveled the globe before landing his current job. Italy and Pakistan were on the pre-White House itinerary; he has been to Italy as president, but not Pakistan. Obama said he went to Pakistan in 1980 because of his college roommates. "It was a wonderful trip for me, and created a great appreciation and a great love for the Pakistani people," he said after an Oval Office meeting with that country's prime minister, Nawaz Sharif. As for Italy, he revealed after a separate Oval Office meeting with Prime Minister Enrico Letta that he and Michelle had been to Tuscany before he became president. Letta invited him to come back, but Obama didn't commit to returning before his term ends in January 2017.
