The day I decided to count the number of countries I’ve visited

Note: The list on this page is static. Click Here for the updated list

 

One day I was listening to a podcast over at the Daily Travel Podcast (Daily Travel Podcast) where they were talking about Chris Guillebeau’s quest to visit every country. I found it interesting and therefore decided to compile my own list. At the time of writing this post it was no longer 193 countries but 195 total countries in the world.

Object holding the good spirits. Old buddhism books are kept here as they cant just be burned/discarded
Shrine in the fields of Mongolia holding the good spirits. Old buddhism books are kept here as they cant just be burned/discarded. This is definitely one of the places I would love to visit again

Without further ado here goes. Countries I have visited are in broad. By visit I don’t mean layovers/flyovers.

List of countries

Looking over the list I see that I time of publishing this post, I have only visited 32 countries, which in reality is not as many as I expected. Some of them are big (USA, Russia for example) though and there are a bunch of interesting countries in there (Moldova, Mongolia etc.)

But then again I only just visited South East Asia a month ago which except for Russia and Mongolia was my first time in Asia and only my third continent.

Hopefully before New years I’ll be able to cross off a fourth continent by visiting Morocco.

Stay happy 🙂

List of world countries

Hello world!

Hello World!

Why did I make this blog? Well the short answer is that I’ve been travelling around and people always ask me for pictures and stories and I’ve been really bad at sharing it 🙂

Then a frisbee friend of mine (Line) did some travelling letters from her travels around Asia and it worked out really well. Very interesting to read it, and so i’ve decided to do something similar. However – I’m doing it bloggy style to have a little more flexibility when it comes to pictures and because I don’t like the idea of Facebook being the one and only hub of all my communication!

Best regards, hope you enjoy:)
