Former President Barack Obama has traveled to 9 nations since leaving the White House

Former President Barack Obama left office on Jan. 20, and has since been on what seems a non-stop tour of countries around the world.

No stranger to frequent travel, Obama took part in 156 foreign trips over the course of his eight years as president, positioning him as the third most traveled U.S. commander in chief. Former President Bill Clinton notched 210 trips, while George W. Bush accrued 190. Although he has left his Oval Office position, Obama has continued to travel internationally, with stops in the British Virgin Islands, French Polynesia and multiple European countries.

Obama and his wife, former first lady Michelle, notably left immediately following President Trump's inauguration for a vacation at Richard Branson's private celebrity hot spot, Necker Island -- located in the British Virgin Islands. The 44th president soon after departed for French Polynesia, where he was rumored to be vacationing alone while working on his book.

Since then, Obama has engaged in public life as a keynote speaker at events both foreign and domestic. In May, Obama spoke to the current global political climate at the Global Food Innovation Summit in Berlin, saying people "mustn't isolate themselves."

"If I become so convinced that I'm always right, the logical conclusion of that often ends up being great cruelty and great violence," Obama said.

Obama has also visited Edinburgh, London and both Milan and Tuscany within Italy.
