How many countries have I visited?

This is usually the first question people ask me. Or sometimes it's the second, the first being “don't you get scared”?

I'm going to leave the scared one for now and tell you that up until this point, I've never actually counted the countries I've been to.

I have started once or twice, but I get bored and then start researching where I'm going next and it all falls by the wayside.

So I've finally done the count and ….. drum roll please…..

I've now been to 92 103 countries! (Updated October 2023)
