Whackpacking A Double Century Of Real Countries: Fakes Sifted Out

You might have read (or most likely might not, as nobody needs to care) how I am trying to whackpack my way to 200 real life countries before 30th March 2021 – it’s a huge challenge. If I do it, I will also have written at least one article (normally multiple, in Poland, England, Australia, Northern Ireland and China’s case – over 100 articles) per country. As a strong nationalist, separatist and peaceful idealist, I love the idea of more countries rather than less. I hate when a brace of countries blur into one. I don’t like dual currencied nations, nor borders without barriers, nor refusal to get passport stamps.

Got my passport stamped in French Guyana at St Georges de Loyapock – Border Police Building.

Hence why places like Uzupis, Podjistan and French Guyana will always be more real as countries to me than Germany, Slovakia or Belgium, a hat-trick all ‘enjoying’ the same currency and some kind of false wacaday wannabe left-winged freedom. Bulldog to that, I’m on a mission to a double century. In order, I tried to list every country I have been to that I personally recognise but it was tough. I think this is the correct list to go alongside these list:

1.Countries I visited the most times. (Australia for example is only on 3, third bottom!)
2.Countries I spent the most time in. (Australia for example is on 20 months, fifth top)
3.Countries I recognise (there are 629).
4.Countries I have been to by flag.
5.Places I have been to by country, city, region, village, settlement.
6.Countries I was so close to, but didn’t visit.
