I’ve kind of given up on “country counting”. I mean, I like to keep a tally of where I’ve been, but according to the Matador map above I’ve been to 39 countries. If you count Scotland, England & Wales separately, then I’ve been to two more. If you think Gibraltar shouldn’t be counted because it’s a British territory, it’s one less. Which is it, world? And what are borders anyway? Europe has gained an inordinate amount of countries just in my lifetime.
But regardless of how many countries various platforms or governments think I’ve been to, here’s a nicely organised list of places I’ve been along with corresponding blog posts.
AND, in keeping with my obsession with maps, here’s a handy map with all my blog posts on, too!
All countries below link to their categories; all destinations within the countries link to blog posts I have written about them where applicable.
