I have visited a lot of the world, and a lot of it has been 'off the beaten track', so far
I have visited 100 countries and 75 capitals
I've tried to document as much as I can, and you can find a list of all the Countries and Capitals by clicking on the links to the left.
If maps are more your thing then I've got a map of all the capital cities and countries, not to mention a view of all the trips I've taken.
While on Cyprus I entered both Akrotiri and Dhekelia Sovereign Base Areas, these are both classed as 'overseas territories of the United Kingdom', but should they be included in the countrybagging count? I fear the answer is no, but they should have an 'honourable mention'.
There has been some discussion about whether some of the countries that I count are really countries, and that the list of UN countries is the one that should be used. In that case I've visited
countries. However I have a problem with this. It lumps a lot of places together, the Isle of Man is NOT part of the United Kingdom, but it does not appear in the UN list, and here's another one for you. Switzerland only became a full member of the UN in 2002. So does that mean that when I visited it in 1996 I couldn't count it? I think not!
