One of the most debated questions in the travel world is “HOW MANY COUNTRIES ARE THERE?”
And truth be told, you will get a different answer depending on who you ask… There is no right or wrong answer; everyone is entitled to their own opinion about what they think qualifies as a ‘country.’
The topic of ‘how many countries are there’ is a very complicated and touchy subject (especially when people from almost every country will see this video), but I have done my best to reason why I side with the U.N.’s list of 193 countries.
It’s pretty surreal to think that my goal of visiting every country is now within reach. I have just 54 left! And after this year (if all goes as planned) I will have 37 left.
What are your thoughts on how many countries there are in the world? Do you also side with the U.N. and myself at 193? Please share your thoughts below!l
