How well do you compare with the Queen or the likes of Sir David Attenborough when it comes to scouring the earth? Check it out here. Now they might not have covered ALL sovereign countries like James did (we wrote about it here), but they certainly have been places that we would be restricted from entering! But that said, we’ve probably also been places they would not be able to.
Do you count the number of countries you have visited? Hopefully not because of the bragging rights it is supposed to confer! Ok, we admit that our handprint maps do border on that… heheh. Hypocrites we are… sigh.
We are regular contributors to Tripadvisor. And whenever you put in a review, they will clock in the city you have visited to your tally. Of course you can also go to the map and clock in the cities without a review too. That takes integrity though because you must had visited. So be honest!
And the interesting thing is they have a little counter that tells you how many percent of the world you have traveled to.
So it’s not about how many countries but the number of places one’s touched. According to this tool, our tally comes in at 42%. Not too sure about the distances traveled though. Perhaps it has to do with where one is based. Wow. Would you believe in such information? We wrote in our post on how things change (here) that there is a lot of space on our spinning spaceship to cover (such as the last continent). So not for one moment we believe this, though it was the first time we noticed it.
