On this page I’m keeping an overview of the countries I have traveled to so far. The list includes every country I’ve set foot in, from only a couple of hours in North Korea to several months in Colombia. As my quest to visit every country in the world is pretty recent, most of the countries have been visited in the past 10 years.

I’ve started with the low-hanging fruit in Europe where I could easily visit 20-30 countries and slowly expanded towards Asia and the Middle East. Recently I have also been traveling to America and Africa but it has become more difficult as those countries are often harder to reach. And don’t get me started on COVID-restrictions which make country-hopping a mess and sometimes even impossible.

There are so many more countries to discover, some very special ones, which makes me very excited. I’ll update this page regularly with new destinations I’ve visited. Write in the comments which country I should visit next!

Every country in the world

One of my big dreams is to visit every country on planet Earth. And I’ve come to believe that it’s a dream that I can accomplish. I don’t take it as a main goal, because I don’t want it to be my main focus while traveling. But I do think it’s a nice motivation to visit countries that are not so popular.

    To my – very poor – geographic knowledge, Cyprus is in Europe (was there in January). Tip from your godfather : your next trip should be to Liechtenstein. I wonder if Mexico doesn’t belong to North-America. See you !

      Cyprus oei.. Daar is iets fout gelopen. Indeling Amerika moet ik eens herbekijken, is soms wat ingewikkeld. Mexico is inderdaad Noord-Amerika. Nog niet in Liechtenstein geweest! Bedankt voor de tips!

    You’ve darkened Groenland without mentioning it. If you believe it’s Denmark, then – maybe – you should not mention Gibraltar. Is’t it the same ? Latin-America is in fact South-America, you visited only Colombia. Other countries are in Central-America. Have fun !

      De inkleuring ging automatisch via een website voor het kaartje. Intussen ook Guyana, Suriname en Brazilië in Zuid-Amerika!
