A small world?
How many times do you here ‘It’s a small world?’ Many people are well-travelled and loads have been to every continent on the planet.
Well I started my blog less than 3 weeks ago and I have suddenly realised it’s actually A BIG WORLD. There are so many amazing blogs out there about so many amazing places!!
If you consider the number of countries and more so the number of diverse cultures, languages and customs, how long would it take in a person’s lifetime to travel to every one of them.
Is there anyone on the planet who has visited every single country?
According to world records academy
Kashi Samaddar, 52, a Dubai-based businessman (born in Calcutta, India) has travelled to 218 countries setting the world record for the most countries visited. He is also the first person to visit all 194 sovereign states.
How many countries are there on our planet? There doesn’t appear to be one right answer as different sources give different answers but would it surprise you to know that there are only between 189 and 196 independent countries in the world today.
This site has information about all the countries in the world. Did you know there are only 191 countries that are not disputed? The site has more (partially disputed) countries, a total of 257 countries with links to pages with facts about the country, the flag, maps, population, languages, birth rate, information about the land, size, death rate, animals, coordinates, other facts and additional information.
Keep your blogs coming, getting to see so much diversity is fascinating.
Maybe it really is smaller than you think out there.
