I wrote down this list and it felt like I’d done as much exploring as Columbus, Magellan and Vespucci put together, but no. Turns out I’ve only traveled around 12% of the globe; it made me feel very, very small (I may have stolen that from Neil Armstrong).
There are so many places left to see and explore, I’m excited just thinking about it!
How many countries have you been to?
