Visiting all countries. Its an idea that takes me a lot of years to be completed and after a few years of traveling, I realized that it's always a matter of time until I forget many details about my journeys. So I started to write about my experiences and difficulties so that one day I can sit back and read through it again to remember. Also maybe some fellow travelers can get some information for their own journeys to specific countries. This is the purpose of the internet, provide information and get information, isn't it?

It all started with traveling to various dive spots around the world and that required sometimes going very remote places. It summed up over the years and then I figured out I should combine scuba diving and more of sightseeing - and not only travel to places for scuba diving. So if there is a place where it is possible to go scuba diving and which is on my list for diving, then I probably soon will be there.

This blog contains a lot of pictures, as it is probably the best way to collect moments and reasons why it is worth to travel to every country. (Sometimes I should lower the number of pictures for the sake of page load speed but during the process of evaluating which pictures I want to keep and which not, I simply can't decide and end up keeping too much).

Some years ago I didn't even think about it, but meanwhile a few years later and 50% of all countries visited, I realized that there is no reason why I should not continue and visit every country in the world.

Some questions that I frequently get asked...

Why traveling so much and to so many countries in relatively a short time?
I don't like spending days or even weeks at the same place doing relaxing things. Its the curiosity about what is behind the next corner and this curiosity drives me to continue traveling. Also, because I have only limited annual vacation time :).

Why not traveling slower and explore more of it?
For example, let's compare two travelers: Traveller A travels slower and explores places more intense. Traveler B travels faster and much further. Both styles of traveling have its advantages and disadvantage, but none of them is the wrong way of traveling. It's always a point of view.

Don't I regret not spending more time in a nice place that I like?
Many countries cannot be compared to each other when it comes to the minimum amount of required time to see the most important things. So, in many countries, I stay weeks or even months and in some, I stay only two or three days. It all depends what is there to see from a visitors point of view. Instead of seeing one nice place for a longer time, I get the chance instead to see two nice places in the same amount of time. However, those places which were really worth having a longer visit are kept in mind and are on my visit-again-shortlist.

Thanks for visiting!
