At 17 years old I set a goal to visit at least 100 countries during my life.

By 17 I had already been to Canada and Mexico, bringing my grand total to 3 countries including the United States. Since then I have continued to travel and have now been to 118 countries on 6 continents. My goal has changed from 100 to 208, the number of countries qualified to compete in the world cup as a member of FIFA. I hit 100 countries in 2008 when I went to South Africa. I plan on reaching 208 by 2018 before I turn 50. Listed below are the 118 countries I have been to in the order visited next to their national flag.
