I'm currently in California, our last trip was to the UK & Ireland. The only question is where to next? I've visited 88 countries and I hope to see them all again plus some more. For a list of some of the UNESCO World Heritage sites I've visited click here.

If I followed the Century Club rules, which  astonishingly includes territories and plane stops, I could add the following; the Canary Islands, DR Congo, Hong Kong, Bali, Hawaii, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Qatar, Tasmania, Chile, Azerbaijan, Puerto Rico, Japan, Hong Kong and Burkina Faso. Following these rules my "country count" would be 104, but here's a post written a few years ago explaining why I don't. However, perhaps now it's over 100 I'll succumb to their lure, I'm  not above changing my tune!
