Global Regions

I thought about this while talking to my brother one day about travel. On paper, we had visited the same amount of countries even though most of his had come from a single cruise in the Caribbean. It doesn’t seem to make sense to consider a huge country like China as ‘explored’ in an equal amount of time as a tiny one like Luxembourg. The people at “Most Traveled People” have devised a solution I support more than just counting raw amounts of countries. They have divided the earth into “873 countries, territories,¬†autonomous regions, enclaves, geographically separated island groups, and major states and provinces.” This makes it so that countries like China are actually divided by regions instead of being considered as whole.

There are the MTP global regions I have visited:
