Countries I've Visited


You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. — Frank Zappa

By popular demand, I now use ISO 3166 as my reference, but still use common names when they are better known than the official ones. I include a country if it existed at the time I was there. Unless needed for disambiguation, I leave off "Republic of" and other prefixes.
