Travel

According to the CIA World Fact Book (January 2020), there are 267 ‘World Entities,’ defined as ‘Independent States’ (e.g. USA, Canada, etc.), ‘Other’ (Taiwan, EU), ‘Dependencies and Areas of Special Sovereignty’ (e.g. Hong Kong, Guam, Puerto Rico, etc.), ‘Miscellaneous’ (e.g. Antarctica, Gaza Strip, West Bank, etc.), and ‘Other Entities’ (5 oceans plus the world as a whole). Therefore, we’ve been to 46% of total World Entities (113 ‘States’ or ‘Dependencies’ plus both ‘Other’ and all 6 ‘Other Entities’). Click a camera icon below to see photos from our recent trips.
