Below you can see a map of all of the countries I have visited along my travels. The blue countries are those that I have visited, light blue are due to visit soon and grey are yet to be visited!
As of September 2020 I have been lucky to travel to 49 countries (that’s not including 3 out of 4 of those that make up the United Kingdom!) across 3 continents. I have also travelled to one British Crown Dependency!
So far I have travelled mainly around Europe and I’m not actually far off visiting every country on the continent! I have also been over to North America a handful of times, South East Asia a couple of times and passed through the Middle East on a couple of occasions.
I’m not really a fan of just going to a country just to say you’ve ‘been there’ or to make the country total number go up, when I visit a place no matter for how long, I try and see as much of the place as I can! Some places like Vaduz in Liechtenstein you can see most of what there is to offer in a day as it is only small, however somewhere like New York city in the USA you do need a couple of visits as it is such a huge and densely packed place!
