    love having been

    I love having been in your country.

    I think, this sentence has 3 verbs (love, having, been).

    love, having = helping verb
    been = main verb.

    Am I right?

    If wrong, please tell the correct one.

    Re: love having been

    The main verb is love. The second verbal having been functions as the verb's object: HAVE + ing + past participle BEEN.

    I love that I had been in your country.
    I love having been in your country.

    Does that help?
