I came across this website a while back but completely forgot about it until reading Arianna’s post about it. There’s a list of countries in the world, and you tick the boxes next to the ones you’ve visited. My tally is fifteen countries–about six percent of the world. Note that there’s nothing in the Southern Hemisphere yet. I ought to do something about that one day.

It looks a little more impressive if I narrow it down to the European countries I’ve visited:

Hmmm. Ten states–only nineteen percent of Europe. To be fair, I should point out that among the many countries I haven’t visited are Turkey and Ukraine, which are both ginormous, as well as the Scandinavian countries, which aren’t exactly puny.

Now let’s take a look at my travels in the U.S.A.:

Whew! That feels better.

Until last fall, I thought I had visited all the states except South Carolina and was seriously thinking about taking a trip down there just to be able to check it off my list. And then my dad told me that I had actually been there as a toddler. I guess that was before the whole “remember stuff from here on out” part of my brain had been activated.
