Whilst the number of countries in the world seems to vary (depending on the references you use) it would appear that there are around 195 independent countries.  The Princess and I are on a mission to visit each and every country on this planet.  We aim to do this by visiting at least 10 new countries every year.  On current estimates we figure that we have about 16 years (maximum) before we complete this task. This should allow certain political issues to settle and for travel safety to increase.  We are up for the challenge!!
The map shown below shows our current whereabouts in the world. And for now that is Hong Kong!
