World map

If it’s got any or all of its own language, currency or border controls then I probably consider it a country. Here is a list of all the countries I’ve been to:

The map also includes my dubious claims of having been to Singapore, Thailand, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Egypt on the basis of airport stops, and Mozambique by virtue of spending a few hours in the Mozambican part of Lake Malawi, en route to and from Chizumulu and Likoma islands.

I think my top ten places that I want to go to would be:

  1. Mali
  2. Ethiopia
  3. Andorra
  4. Tristan da Cunha
  5. Namibia
  6. Papua New Guinea
  7. St. Helena
  8. Colombia
  9. Guyana
  10. Pitcairn Island
