The following is a current list of all countries and territories I have visited, based on a definition of ‘country’ provided by the Traveler’s Century Club (TCC). I use the TCC list as it includes areas such as Taiwan, Transnistria, Canary Islands, and other areas that are not technically countries, but are distinct in some way (the total TCC count is currently 325 countries.) In addition to the TCC numbers in the table below, I also indicate the overall totals as defined not just by TCC, but also by Montevideo Convention rules (Sovereign States) and then by actual voting members of the United Nations.
216 = TCC Countries visited
166 = Sovereign Nations visited as defined by the Montevideo Convention
157 = United Nation voting member states visited
