Exploring The World

I’m at 40 UN Countries! 46 Sovereign nations. (50 by 5 target reset to only include UN Countries)

Life to me is all about connections and relationships, so it’s no surprise that I love traveling and exploring the world. There are 195 countries in the world today. This total comprises 193 countries that are member states of the United Nations and 2 countries that are non-member observer states: the Holy See and the State of Palestine. My target is but a portion of those but a goal I set about 20 years ago. The opportunity to meet new people, see amazing sights, try out new food, and build lasting memories is almost addictive. I love it. And I like to share it with others. This page is about sharing a piece of my journey with others. Perhaps one day we will be in the same city, in the same cafe, enjoying a new cultural experience. Perhaps we can create a shared memory.

Tracking My “50 by 50” Target – World Travel Map

Countries that are colored or have a red pin (smaller countries) are those where I have lived, worked, or vacationed. I recently removed UAE because I never left Dubai airport,  and Namibia and Zambia because I barely crossed the border from Botswana and Zimbabwe. I have had to reset my number to remove countries that are not United Nations members.

Use the search box to find content on this site relating to any of the countries. Below is the full list of countries I have added to my trek so far. Keep exploring!
