Territories visited so far (15/62)

So, people keep asking me what’s next after the 197 countries. Well there are a lot of territories or countries in the world that aren’t UN members (the nomadmania list is below).

I am not sure if I will actually visit all of these, particularly the Caribbean which isn’t really my jam, so don’t expect me to finish this list anytime soon. But I will visit the super interesting ones. As well as visiting some of these, I plan to revisit a lot of countries and do a lot of long distance hikes :-). Happy travels all!.

Bolded ones I have already visited, italicised ones are planned for the coming 12 months :-)….
