Visited countries: 51
By adding Ukraine to the list of countries I have visited, the total number is now 51. But the most interesting consequence of this addition is that now the map in Europe presents some quite curious “islands” of not-yet-visited countries completely surrounded by already-visited-countries: Belarus and Slovakia are the most perfect examples, but Albania, Bulgaria, Estonia and Norway are also part of the list. And Iceland, of course, which is a real island. The remaining European countries in this list are Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Montenegro and Slovenia. It’s still a long way to go, but tomorrow I will move Albania to the list of visited countries and Slovenia will for sure follow the same way before the end of the year. For the others, I trust on my friends’ kind invitations!
