The Countries of the World

Yesterday I had ten fingernails. Today I have none. Why? Because I began a new project yesterday.

HT to Randy Elrod ( ) for pointing me to this "countries I've visited" map. Sometimes I feel well-travelled . . . until I look at how huge the world really is, then I realize I've visited only five percent.

Wish they had a map for "Countries I've researched." I could add a few more to the map in that case.

Thanks, Randy!

create your own visited country map
or write about it on the open travel guide

That was interesting...I came in at 11% visited (or lived in--grew up as an MK). And yet, even with these small numbers and the world becoming a "global village," we've had the opportunity to see much more than most. Where I live now, I am often astounded to find people who have never ventured more than a state away from home, let alone out of the country.

Thanks for the link!

Have you tried a "States" map? I know they are out there. I feel untravelled until I try one of those....USA isn't like Europe where you drive 5 hours and you're in another you in another state. =)

England and Australia are where I really, really want to go =)
