Obama Bids Adieu to Foreign Travel


Canada was the first; Peru was the last. Earlier this month, President Obama completed his final foreign trip as president, wrapping up eight years of travel that spanned 57 countries and 107 cities.

Since Teddy Roosevelt, the first to travel abroad (to the Panama Canal) during office, presidents have put Air Force One to use more as world leadership called for it.

Obama leaves a foreign travel legacy as the first sitting president to visit Cuba since 1928, but he’s not the most-traveled president – Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush tie for that honor with 74 countries visited each.
