Welcome to my page of destinations I’ve been to! Where do you want to read about first?
A quick note: 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 map above, I’ve been to 40 countries. If you count the UK countries separately, then I’ve been to three more. Several countries aren’t recognised by others. And what are borders, anyway? Europe has gained an inordinate amount of countries just in my lifetime.
So 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!
