In the past 4 years, we've traveled extensively to 55 foreign countries and plan to travel a lot more now that we'll both be 65 and retired next year.

Who gives a hoot about an official list of countries? England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are 4 unique countries to visitors. Travel is about people, let's not get too **bleep** about official lists.

All the countries I've been to have been for leisure, no work.  My favorite trip was to Antarctia, but this isn't a country.  My favorite country is New Zealand.

@JoyceH325734 That's awesome! Are you a member of the Travelers' Century Club? I just joined this summer. I haven't been to 100 official countries yet, but I've been to 102 culturally distinct destinations as defined by their list.

 

Was your travel partially for work, or all personal/leisure travel? Any favorite places you'd like to share?

I wasn't really counting, I was merely stating where I have been! I don't really care if places I have been are an "official" country or not. I just like to travel to where I want to go when I want to go.
