On this page you’ll find a map and list of countries visited: between us we’ve been to over one hundred countries. Individually Mark has visited 102, and Kirsty is working on catching up with a to date count of 96.
We are quite strict with ourselves on what qualifies as a country and our totals are from the most generally accepted country count of 197: 193 fully recognised members of the United Nations, plus Vatican City and Palestine which have the status of permanent observers in the UN. Another 2 states we include are Kosovo (recognised by 108 UN members) and Taiwan (recognised by 22 countries).
Here is a list of the countries that we’ve been to. We have also include the likes of Hong Kong, Macau, Tibet and Gibraltar on the list, but NOT in our personal country counts. Additionally, we don’t include Nagorno Karabakh Republic, which is a self-declared country, recognised by no-one!
Currently we don’t have blog posts for everywhere we’ve been, but for those countries (and the “non-countries”) we have written about, you can click on the country to see our entries.
