How many countries have you visted?

May 19, 2007


A lot of people ask me how many countries I have been to and I wasn’t exactly sure. I have tried hard not to be a country counter, I like to visit a place and get to know it rather than just getting the stamp in my passport and moving on. I do however love quantification, so I figured I’d take a pass at counting. I might have missed a few, but I think this is a pretty complete list:

I have passed though immigration in the following 44 countries:
Argentina
Australia
Bahamas
Belgium
Bolivia
Brazil
Brunei
Cambodia
Canada
Chile
China
Colombia
Croatia
Finland
France
Germany
Israel
Italy
Jamaica
Japan
Lesotho
Luxembourg
Malaysia
Mexico
Monaco
Morocco
Namibia
Nepal
Netherlands
Netherlands Antilles
Panama
Peru
Russia
South Africa
Spain
St. Kitts and Nevis
Swaziland
Switzerland
Tanzania
Thailand
United States
United Kingdom
Vietnam
Zambia

I have also been to all of the following places, some of which required passports, visas or travel permits, and which some people consider to be countries:
Puerto Rico (United States)
San Blas, Kuna Islands (Panama)
Hong Kong (China)
Macao (China)
Tibet (China)

If I were just trying to run up the count, I’d mention that I’ve changed planes or had some equally insignificant contact (like stopping for lunch on the river bank or visiting the intersection of three countries) in all of the following and probably a few more:
New Zealand
Paraguay
S. Korea
Zimbabwe (we chose not to enter to avoid giving Mugabe our money)

You can create your own visited countries map too.

So where have you been?
