COUNTRIES VISITED

Looks like I have a new travel goal, joining the Travelers' Century Club! This is the TCC’s official list of countries and territories, a total of 324 as of January 1, 2014. According to TCC, "Although some are not actually countries in their own right, they have been included because they are removed from the parent country, either geographically, politically or ethnologically. After consideration as to how long one must have stayed in a country or territory to qualify, it was decided that even the shortest visit would suffice — even if only a port-of-call, or a plane fuel stop. This greatly widens the field and will give the traveler a better chance to qualify for one of the most unusual clubs in the world. Anyone who has visited 100 or more of the places listed below is eligible to join."

It's not easy for Filipinos to complete this list since we need visas to almost everywhere! But I've been to 91 as of June 2018. Hopefully we cross-out more from the list soon!
