In an earlier blogpost, I mentioned that I wanted to visit all the countries. That’s impossible, so let’s say that I want to visit/ go on a holiday in 100 different countries in my life. Before I die. If I travel until I’m 73, I can reach my goal, travelling one time a year. Let’s go for it!

So it’s doable. And where’s the fun in that? So let’s make a list. An “I want to be able to cross everything out”-list. Of the things any traveler should want to see. If you have something to add, please let me know below. Maybe I add it to the list! I’m curious :-).
