I am trying to visit all the 196 'proper' countries in the world (that is, all the 193 members of the UN plus Kosovo, Taiwan and Vatican City). Of course, if I can visit any others on Charles' list, that's a bonus. As of January 29, 2016, I am up to 105 'proper' countries and 284 on Charles' list.
My Favorite Places:
USA, India, Iceland, South Africa, New Zealand, Egypt, Scotland
