Travel “Resume”

I needed to gather a list of countries visited the last 10 years for my Russian visa application – so I gave it some thought and put this “resume” together.  I’ve never really been a country counter but reviewing this list makes me want to get to 100 in pretty short order…

The list below is derived from the Travelers Century Club.  This is my excerpt from their list of 321 “countries”.   As they describe the list:

“Although some are not actually countries in their own right, they have been included because they are removed from the parent country, either geographically, politically or ethnologically…consideration as to how long one must have stayed in a country or territory to qualify, it was decided that even the shortest visit would suffice — even if only a port-of-call, or a plane fuel stop.”

I’ve indicated the shorter “fuel stops” with an *.
