Today, I achieved one of my life sub-goals: Traveling to 100 countries (including the one I was born, which one cannot really categorise as "travel", strictly speaking). I'm using a generous count, in which e. g. China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, USA, Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands count as 8 countries (specifically, using the list by the Traveler's Century Club, which incidentally I can now join). Using a strict count (in which for example the territories listed above count as only 2 countries), it's been 80.
