You think you're not a Little Englander and then... come across a tool to plot the countries you've visited via Marginal Revolution and realise just how insular you are.

It was while I was in Vancouver for Worlds that I realised that it was the first time I'd seen the Pacific (my trip to Russia was to Lake Baikal and my trip to China to Beijing); it's a big ocean to miss in twenty three years. But look, I still haven't even made it below the equator. I might as well write "Here be Dragons" on Latin America and Africa. How pathetic!

Create your own Visited Countries Map

I think things will improve as I get older but at the moment even my European coverage is looking a bit shaky. How dissapointing.
