WORLD TRAVEL

According to the CIA World Fact Book (April 2017), there are 196 “independent countries” but a total of 267 “world entities” thanks to territories like Guam, Puerto Rico, etc. Ironically, the world itself is considered one of the “world entities”, as are each of the five oceans…! So, depending on your point of view, we’ve seen either 40% or 53% of world. Click a camera icon below to see photos from our recent trips.
