So far I've travelled to186/196 countries and I plan to visit and blog about them all!

The plan to finish travelling the world…

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.

April 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 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…
