Where have we been?

A map and comprehensive list of all the countries we have visited so far

Here you’ll find a map and list of countries visited: between us we’ve been to over one hundred countries. Individually Mark has visited 104, and Kirsty has been to 101 countries. 

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). 

The dark grey areas represent countries of the world we have travelled to. If we’ve written about a destination, you can click on the map to read the posts.

Here is a list of the countries that we’ve been to. We have also included the likes of Hong Kong, Macau, Tibet and Gibraltar on the list, but NOT in our personal country counts. Additionally, we don’t count Nagorno Karabakh Republic, Abkhazia, Transnistria and other self-declared republics or micro-nations.

Currently we don’t have blog posts for everywhere we’ve been, but for the countries, regions and self-declared we have written about, you can click on the country to see our entries.
