Bucket List - Countries

How many countries are there in the world? That depends on who you're asking. I'm going to list 198 (I've included Palestine, Kosovo and Taiwan, as well as Antarctica.) Antarctica is a continent, not a country (although some nations own slices of it) so I just shoved it into the Oceania category.. close enough right? On top of that, there's 61 Territories / Colonies / Dependencies (T/C/D) that are actually under the jurisdiction of other countries. 

I've put this together as a kind of visual for where I've been. While my goal will never just be to tick off every country it's nice to see how far you've come (and how much more there is left to go!)

If you want to cross off your own list you can download a PDF version at the very bottom and don't forget to share and compare with your friends and family. Use the tag #goandglobetrot so I can take a look too!
