193 Countries – 132 Territories

All Countries
There are 193 countries in the world according to the United Nations. I have visited them all. I arrived in my last country of Eritrea on April 1st, 2016, three days before my 28th birthday.

All territories
Next project is to visit every territory of the world. The list below is Travelers’ Century Club’s list of all 325 countries and territories in the world.

I have been to 291 of the 325 countries and territories so far.

The British Indian Ocean Territory, Midway Island and Wake Island are the only three territories I don’t know if I can visit. They require a special permission, but I will do my best. If I manage to visit those three, it should be fairly easy to visit the remaining territories on the list. I’m in no rush.

Countries and territories I have been are marked in green.
Territories I haven’t been yet are marked in red.
