    I have never been to any/ some of these countries.

    Dear all,

    1. I have never been to any of these countries.
    2. I have never been to some of these countries.

    I would like to make sure if I'm on the right track.

    I think both of thse sentences are correct, but different in meaning.

    #1 says I have been to none of these countries.
    #2 says I have been to some of these countries, but never to some others.

    Is my understanding okay?

    Thank you!

    Yes
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
