I have been to 37 countries in Europe, 12 countries in Asia, 6 countries in Africa, 2 countries in North America, 1 country in South America, 1 country in the Middle East, 5 dependent islands. 4 countries were new in 2015, 4 were new in 2016, and 3 (so far), new in 2017. That makes a grand total of 64 countries and 5 continents.

Not too shabby!

Here are the countries that I have recently travelled to in the last 12 months, in alphabetical order.

Don’t choose. Have it all!

  1. Very impressive!!! I am an unashamed repeat offender 🙂 . It’s great that you saw new places and also some lovely familiar ones too. How nice also that the tall young gentleman gets to travel, l think it sets them up for success later on in life being exposed to different people and cultures. You are to be congratulated for that!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 .

    1. Thank you so much kemkem! A real honour coming from yourself! I too have absolutely no qualms about visiting places that I have been to before. If I like it, I go back! Favourite places in mind? Thailand, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, France, the Czech Republic, Poland, France, Austria, Denmark, Scotland, Holland, Germany! I’ve been to these places a million times and I haven’t been bored LOL. 🙂 🙂
      p.s. It’s been a delight to be able to show “The Tall Young Gentleman” the virtues of travel as he’s a chip off the old block and loves it too!
