Main Page    All Journeys    Travel Tips

In an effort to find a new country to explore, I made a list of possibilities. Unfortunately, some countries are way too dangerous due to deceases or humans. Some are just way too cold for me, some are extremely expensive to reach and explore, some are still too wild to be travelled alone. Some are just territories and colonies of others (XX). Good thing is that I only have visited a few! Way more to enjoy.
This list is not constantly updated. The relation of each country and area does not necessarily be agreed on, and it may not be my own opinion either.
