Countries I’ve Visited

I’ll admit it. I’m a travel addict.

As of this writing (September 2022), I’m slowly moving move some previous travel stories from other sites and re-telling others, but that effort leaves some countries and territories without travel stories here yet. Bear with me.

I am a provisional member of the Traveler’s Century Club. I aspire to full membership, but that requires more countries and territories visited than I can currently claim. Using their list of countries and territories which is admittedly quite generous, here’s where I’ve been so far, in order of appearance:

I’ve driven a car in each of the 55 countries and territories listed below marked with the 🚗 emoji.
