The official number of countries in
the world ranges from 193 to 196,
depending on whom you ask.
Travelers' Century Club offers its
own intriguing list of 321 countries
and territories. Per their website:
"Although some [listings] 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" (e.g.,
Hawaii and Alaska). We include
these unofficial country and
territory listings in gray text below.

Note: In cases where multiple links were
possible, we linked to our most extensive trip to
a particular country or territory. Countries with
no links were visited before our website began.
