You’re welcome to suggest countries I should visit (when the world opens up to travel again) and we can meet in person once more!


  1. Wow..I was close at 63 countries!

    My suggestions for next countries are The Netherlands and Finland (I have friends in both!)

    We’ve had fun celebrating your 40th!

    1. What a great way to celebrate your 40th birthday.

      I really enjoyed making our international meal from scratch, and trying a couple of things that I have never tasted before.

      That flight path map looks amazing and the list of countries you have visited is just mind boggling.

      Over your life time you have nearly averaged 1.5 countries a year.

      Thank you for making your birthday so inclusive, despite your lockdown restrictions.

  2. What a beautiful idea, loved being able to celebrate you tonight!! Happy Birthday 🥳 Lithuania is the country that cane to mind and only because it’s missing haha, I have no idea if Lithuania is even known for it’s tourism factor???

  3. That’s amazing what an incredible achievement!
    What an excellent time we all have had celebrating your special day. Well done great idea.

  4. Swaziland. You’ve never been there and it has a cool name too. You’ve broken down the 4 nations in the UK and so you’ve yet to go to Wales and Northern Ireland. But also go to Ireland too! Cracking accent. Plus we had an amazing time in Iceland so add that to the list too. And, one more, Malawi. I loved my time there.
