Countries I’ve Visited


105/193 UN Countries

My goal is to visit all of the UN Sovereign Nations by 2023 and still be employed and married

(If I’m not helping and serving people along the way, I’ve failed as well.)

Travel I’ve Written About:

Antarctica

Africa

Asia
Europe

North & Central America

South America

Counting countries visited is a fun motivation, I first started with the TCC (The Century Club) country/territory list, which is  easier, and after hitting 100 on that list I added tracking for the UN countries list. Counting countries is definitely not the exclusive mission here.  I love to track all sorts of lists especially the various Wonders of the World lists.  I have completed the 7 chosen and  most of the Finalists of the New Wonders of the World.  I’ve also started looking at New Natural Wonders of the World, and recently became interested in Underwater Wonders of the World with my new Scuba certification.
