Do'h/Woohoo! On the one hand, I've been robbed of one of my countries visited (as part of the U.K., Wales does not count as a separate country). I also can't remember if I've visited Bermuda or not so until I verify that, I can't count it. On the other hand, I've gained a country (I forgot that the Vatican City State is considered its own country even though I deliberately mailed some postcards from there just so I could use their postal system). That brings the grand total to
27 countries visited (12% of the world). I'll get one more in May when I hit Ireland (even though my second homeland of Scotland won't count).
Now you try!
