Map

For every place I visit there are at least two more that end up on my every expanding list of places I want to go. I’ve by no means been everywhere but I’m trying my hardest.

Where did I get this list from? This list is based on the countries and territories listed on the Travelers Century Club website.

Why that list? First of all, I agree with that website – some territories are quite distinct from their ‘mainland’ counterparts – Hawaii and the British Virgin Islands are good examples. Also, while I’m not a ‘country collector’, I would one day like to join the Traveler Century Club to get access to their member guides and group benefits. So, that’s why I’m counting against that list. When I hit 100, I’m submitting my membership application.

What isn’t on the list? Any country or territory where I haven’t left the airport.

    Hi Jo
    Really appreciate your advice about Pearl Harbour and Hawaii.
    Sitting in Honolulu at the moment and there is so much information around about tours and such.
    Your advice is easy to understand and practical.
    If your not already doing this for a living, you should do.

    Thank You

    David

    Hi Jo,
    what about travelling to Northern Germany, Denmark or Sweden? I live in northern Germany near the danish border.
    We have the Baltic Sea and the North Sea with the famous “Wattenmeer” with a lot a small islands. It’s three hours by car from my place to Kopenhagen in Denmark and MalmΓΆ in Sweden. Both cities are very beautiful, they are connected by a very impressive bridge.
    Hamburg is 60 miles away from my place and a very beautiful city, too!
    Best regards,
    Boris

    I saw you have visited my country, Indonesia. It’s interesting to read travel bloggers’ opinion about my country: the highs and lows, the food, nature, and culture. Another reason to visit Indonesia again? Hope to be able to read it in the future. Good luck.

    It is said “If you love the Galapagos, you won’t go there”. I guess it has to do with keeping them pristine.

    Galapagos Islands was the best place I’ve ever been in all of the americas, better than amazon, inca trail , salt flats in Bolivia, Rio de Janeiro. Also, el mundo perdido based on the film ‘up’ or Roraima , southern Venezuela bordering Brazil , flat top mountains, amazing scenery and when your on top you can see Guyana, brazil and venezuela in all directions – if your brave enough to go there. Finally, you should visit Desierto de Tatacoa near Neiva or San Augustin in Colombia , where not many gringas venture, mucho suerte.

    Interesting, we’ve been to about the same number of countries. I’ve been to 51 so far but looking at your list, you have 21 countries I haven’t been to. Which means to say I also have a lot you haven’t been to. The top of my list would be Tanzania. You can get both beautiful animal watching, hiking up the tallest mountain in Africa and amazing beach time by Zanibar all within a relatively short distance from each other. I thought South Africa was beautiful. If only they could get rid of the crime in the cities. Cape Town, the northern wine country and the southern tip and beaches is a good choice. I saw the notes on Guyana. It’s tough to get in there as they only have charter flights. I only ended up there because my flight from Brasil to Atlanta ended up there in an emergency when the plane engine caught on fire at night over the Amazon. But that’s another scary, crazy story all its own. Have fun in Columbia

    What about going to Guyana? I’m from there and I think you would enjoy what the country has to offer.
