A to Z: Places I’ve Visited in The World

Do you ever complete one of those travel challenges on Facebook where you tick off the places you have visited in the world? I’ve done a few of these and found that they mainly focus on places in Europe or USA so I normally don’t score too well. Although I’ve touched on Europe and the USA, most of my overseas travel has comprised of South East Asia and a few places in the Caribbean during a cruise.

Out of interest I decided to make up a list of A to Z of places I’ve visited in the world. Here’s the result:

A – Aruba

B – Bali, Indonesia

Kuta Beach

C – Curacao

D – Darwin, Australia

E – England

London

F – Fiji

G – Gallipoli, Turkey

Gallipoli, Turkey

H – Hawaii

Waikiki Beach, Honolulu

I – Ireland

Kinsale

J – Japan

Kakunodate Samurai Town

K – Koh Samui, Thailand

Chaweng Beach

L – Langkawi, Malaysia

Views from top of Langkawi

M – Mexico

Costa Maya, Mexico

N – Netherlands

Amsterdam

O – New Orleans, USA

P – Paris, France

Q – Quebec City, Canada

R – Roatan, Honduras

S – Singapore

Singapore River by Night

T – Turkey

Istanbul

U – USA

New York

V – Vietnam

Fishing Boats in Nha Trang

W – Whistler, Canada

Y – Yorkshire, UK

Settle in Yorkshire

Z – New Zealand

Fiordland Milford Sound

Surprisingly when I add them up, I have actually been to 25 different countries with many more on my bucket list. I have discovered that cruises are a great way of sampling different countries because they generally sail to numerous ports of different countries within a region. Fingers crossed, I will have the opportunity to see a lot more of Europe during the next few years while I’m still able to travel long distances.

How many different countries have you been to? Which one is your favourite?

    I have so many on my bucket list too Kathy. You have certainly traveled to some wonderful places. Quebec City is gorgeous isn’t it. We visited in 2014. You have inspired me to look at our travels. Up until 2015 we were fortunate enough to have an overseas trip every year, however with parents-in-law to look after that has taken a back seat. This year though we are off to Spain and I can’t wait. Bring on October. Happy travelling Kathy and I really enjoyed your post and photos. xx

      I have been fortunate to travel to some wonderful overseas destinations Sue. I’m very excited about going on a Mediterranean Cruise and spending 3 weeks in Italy this year. We are also going back to Vietnam and visiting Laos later on this year. After this my husband is saying no more overseas hols for a while. He wants to do more caravanning in Australia. :)

    Well! You certainly get around! Great pics(as I would expect from the number#13 top travel blogger)and quite a variety of climates too :)

      Ha ha! Thanks Leanne, but remember I was #13 in the over 50s category of travel bloggers! I do enjoy travelling to new and interesting places overseas. :)

    Wow, what a great variety of places you’ve visited. I agree that a cruise is a great way of ticking off countries and destinations in a short space of time – but perhaps ticking off isn’t the right phrase – more like intense cultural immersion ;) Anyway, I love it. Boy oh boy, I can only imagine the time you must have spent trawling through photos to put this fabulous post together! Absolutely – no wonder you are #13 in the +50’s Travel Bloggers! Go you!

      Did you have the chance to add up countries that you have visited Jo? I imagine you would be at least double my paltry 25 countries! Finding photos of the places I’ve visited was a challenge because some were extremely old (pre-digital days). Who knows how they determine trop travel bloggers? Although it is an honour, I doubt whether anyone is seriously that impressed! Lol. :)

    I’ve only been to 26 – I have to stop going back to India!! Norway is in the list this year!!

      26 is a fair number Julie. The trick is to go to a continent, like Europe where there are heaps of small countries. I will racking up a few more this year when I go on a Mediterranean cruise. Norway sounds divine. :)
