Ever look back at your life and wonder how much of the world you’ve seen?
For me, no.
Paying a visit to Hendrik’s blog and noticing this cool link, I decided to take stock of all those exotic destinations on this planet I’ve set foot on. The results? I need to get out of the house more.
The red spots you see account for all the places I’ve been to. Using complex mathematical and graphical analysis (aka sophisticated guesswork), it is not difficult to see that I’ve visited only 3% of the countries in this world. With much luck, and a fat pay rise, I might be able to colour more of that map red in the years to come.
Well, at the very least, I’ve gotta go Disneyland.
Update: End of 2010 – Still not doing that much better!
Update: June 2014 – Western side doesn’t look so blank now.
