I thought about going to Australia in my soon-to-be travels. But again, I think i will need a veichle and a friend. It is too big, and the railway doesn't really run anywhere interesting.
In England, you are always only 20 minutes from a tourist attraction... Britain is a smalll island, with a long history... so there's always something to see nearby (so much so that noone ever sees any of it, which is probably a sociology dissertation for someone).
Australia it looks like several hundred miles between anything. between supermarkets! gonna need to learn to drive. And, for sure, I'm not rich enough to go round there yet i don't think...
So India. And Nepal. And maybe Bhutan or Tibet. One day I will got to Russia too. When I do this properly.
When I leave on January 9th, it's a warm-up exercise.
Andy, according to that map, it looks like you've been to Scotland and Wales. When did you go there??
Good observation on the Scotland - Wales visited. I have not visited them, however I clicked in "Great Britain."
The question was the problem.
They had a question "Great Britain" and I clicked yes, it probably included all the "Whatevers" of that big island.
There is about 672 Geographical different locations on the planet.
Most web sites use very few of them in their sites, only trying to gleam the most money off the top and not deal with all of them.
NOW... There is a huge problem, to make navigation with about 187 main is easier than to deal with the making of 672 maps.
I am wanting to do the same as this site or World66 however to make it color separated, and to include all the 672 separate areas.
I use the Worlds Most Travel mans site as the closest to perfect as a reference.

I am trying presently to hire a Map or Navigation person to make these types of toys. Graphic though is different than PHP, HTML is different, hard to coordinate and I am sure it will take me a year if I had the two person sitting here in front of me working.
HOWEVER I see light.

I love it -- I can't wait to fill up a map from my own travels! :)
You might also try the visited countries (and cities!) map at travelpost.com - it allows zooming and has a very comprehensive list of cities.
There is also a larger, clearer version of the world66 map at travelblog.org - fewer countries though.
Sadly MostTraveledPeople.com really puts it into perspective how many more countries there are to visit. :(
