Although I believe in quality experiences over quantity, I do keep a tally of the countries I’ve visited for my own goal-setting purposes.
The map can be deceiving though–there are a few countries where I’ve spent only a couple of nights, and there are some I’ve collectively spent months or years in—there is no way to tell which is which just by looking here. In general, I don’t “count” a country unless I’ve spent at least a few nights there, and whenever possible try and spend at least a week in a place to truly get a sense of its culture and people.
