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.
