So far I've travelled to175/196 countries and I plan to visit and blog about them all!

I ‘m Sue. My aim is to visit every country in the world. Until quite recently, I thought this was an unattainable dream, in terms of both cost and danger, countries stricken by war. But now I have A Plan and what looks like an achievable goal.

Dec 2019/Jan 2020: Western Sahara (officially part of Morocco so it doesn’t count), Mauritania (176), Senegal (been before), Gambia (been before), Guinea-Bissau (177), Guinea (178), Sierra Leone (179) Liberia (180), Ivory Coast (181), Togo (182), Benin (183), Niger (184), Mali (185) and Nigeria (186).
Feb 2020: Cameroon (187), Chad (188), Equatorial Guinea (189), CAR(190), Burundi(191)
Summer 2020: Some revisits for photos:  Slovenia, Malta, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Belgium, Tunisia,  Bulgaria, Andorra, Sweden, Finland,Bulgaria
September 2020: Afghanistan (192)
October 2020: Saudi Arabia (193), Bahrain(194), Iraq (195) Yemen (196),

On with the plan….watch this space to see how I do.

The plan to finish travelling the world…

Where have I been so far…

The Blogs

The blogs on this website tell the story of my travels so far, often solo, recorded in words and pictures – my own window on the world.  I’m not going into competition with Lonely Planet. This is an entirely subjective travelogue, in the main reflecting my own impressions and experiences, been there, saw that, thought this.  Dive in and read about the countries you’ve visited and the ones you haven’t.  I’d love to hear your experiences so please do email, comment, get in touch…

Australia – Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania, the Ghan and Perth

For a while I take on the role of tracker, following rows of tiny pawprints in the snow. I’m proud of myself for working out that they’re very recent, but whatever I’m pursuing could be a Woozle for all I know.

Cocos (Keeling) Islands

Chris descends the ladder, putting one  leg into the water, and then appears again in the boat announcing he has been bitten by a shark. For a moment I think he is joking…

Christmas Island

Two cars arrive complete with flashing beacons and three officers. They’re very kind (I think they’re glad of something to do) and take me to hospital.

Timor – Leste
