Where in the World Has My Lens Been?

I have been asked many times about where I have travelled to in pursuit of my photographic prowess.  I had not given this much thought, until I recently came upon Kate McCulley’s website : Adventurous Kate’s Solo Female Travel Blog.  What a great idea!

During this past Holiday Season, I began to think about it more seriously.  I perused over 25,000 photos which I have taken.

I have logged millions of kilometres worldwide, using many forms of transportation . . . airplane, automobile, bicycle, boat, cable car, cruise ship, ferry, funicular, moped, motorcycle, rickshaw, scooter, skateboard, skis, snowmobile, train and tuk-tuk.

I consulted Countries of the World and discovered that I have been to all seven continents and 81 of 197 countries and territories worldwide!

Here’s a map (I have been to the countries shown in blue) showing these countries.

So here goes . . .

My list of countries
