A lot of travelers can tell you how many countries they’ve been to, but most can’t tell you how many there are. There are many different lists and just about every one leaves out that one country near and dear to the reader that invalidates the whole list. We’re not creating our own, either. We found a group called the Traveler’s Century Club that keeps a very comprehensive list of 324 countries. Tough to argue with theirs, even though it seems like they count some places twice, like Turkey. And getting to Antarctica is tough enough without having to segregate it into no less than SEVEN unique regions. There are actually members of the TCC who have been to all 324. Absolutely amazing.
The list below comes from TCC and has links to pages within our blog that mention the country you’re interested in.
