All the Countries in the World

So how many countries are there in the world? A simple answer would be 193 as this is the amount of official countries according the United Nations. But there are many more territories and unique destinations in the world than just the list of official countries. To include all these destinations the Travelers’ Century Club  made a list consisting of all 325 countries and unique destinations combined. The following map shows all the countries I’ve visited; clicking on a country will redirect you to its respective blog post. Be sure to have Flash installed on your device to see the map.

The following list shows all the countries and unique destinations in the world according the Travelers’ Century Club.
