Traveling

About traveling

Ireland (near Dublin) from above.

One hobby I really like is traveling around the world. Every holiday or trip counts for traveling.
It’s no odds whether a trip leads me only to somewhere in Germany or in a foreign country – everything means traveling.

As a small goal for my future I try to visit around 50 to 100 countries around the globe. Consequently I sum up all countries that I have visited in the following section.

Visited countries

Every member of the UNO, which is recognized as an independent country by the time of my visit, counts as a visited country for me. Because of that the German Democratic Republic (GDR) [German: Deutsche Demokratische Republik], which of course does not exist any more, can be found in the following table.
By the way: Every country where I have been more than one hour on national ground counts as visited.
