Por for “to”

Mis abuelos ________ por diferentes países. My grandparents have travelled to different countries.(HINT: Choose the right tense to express a general experience)
han viajado
Hi, regarding por meaning “to” here, i searched “por” and found a lesson on “por for general destination”. Would that apply in this case? Gracias, Shirley.

Hola Shirley, 

Have another look at that lesson about general destination. I think you will find that "para" is used [not por] in the context of "to / towards" a destination. 

In the example which you quoted "Mis abuelos .... por" what they are trying to say is that the grandparents have travelled "through or around" various/ several countries. Por is always used to denote this meaning of passing through. "Diferentes" has the meaning of various and several, as well as different. I hope this helps. Saludos. John
