How Many Countries?

I recently set myself a challenge to visit at least 30 countries before I reach the age of 30 and listing the countries that I’ve already visited proved to be trickier then you may think.

Should I list the countries of the UK individually or as one? What about Jersey? Hong Kong or China? Does Vatican City really count as its own country?

CGP Grey offers a good rundown of the problem on their YouTube channel.

For now, I’ve decided to make my judgement on a case by case basis, which leaves me at 23 countries. You can find the list here. Seven to go before 30!
