Countries Visited

I thought I’d make a little page to track the countries I’ve visited. My Geocaching statistics do a decent job of this, but I haven’t found a geocache in every country I’ve visited. Furthermore, there are different definitions of what “visiting” a country means.

I have two criteria for what counts as having “visited” a country.

  • Criteria 1 defines “visiting” a country as stepping onto the soil of the country. This means that layovers count, even if I don’t leave the airport or technically “enter” the country through immigration control.
  • Criteria 2 defines “visiting” a country as having: 1. Passed immigration where applicable, 2. Spent at least several hours sightseeing, and 3. Left the airport, train, train station, bus, or bus station (where applicable).

On this page, you can see the countries I’ve visited to according to each criteria. You can see the map of each followed by a list. If you wish to view the map in higher detail, simply click on it to view it larger. You may also expand or collapse the sections using the +/- icons to the left of the titles.
