This wasn’t my idea. It is totally Fandango’s fault!
I was at work, just going through the latest posts around, leaving a “like” and a comment here and there, when I came across Fandango’s Been There or Not.
There was a world map involved, so I invited myself in, and discovered that you could download this very simple app both for Apple and Android devices (yeah, they have it for Android, Fandango, I got mine, and it works fine! hehehehe), called “Been”.
You just make the list of all the countries you have visited so far, and it provides you with a map that makes you realize how little of this world you’ve really seen!
I mean…. 8%?? I thought I had traveled a fair bit compared to most people I know.
The problem is that I seem to be interested in small countries. For an example, I bet Luxembourg didn’t make any difference… But I’ve been there a couple of times!
I just feel it isn’t fair, and I wonder if Been-people would consider adding an option to calculate what percentage of the countries I have visited based on the total number of them, instead of their surface area?
My score wouldn’t be mind blowing either, but I have a feeling it would beat 8%.
Anything beats 8%…
Thank God I have crossed the South border and been to the States a couple of times… I don’t want to imagine my percentage without US painted orange!
Fandango, what do you say we make a deal? The first one who wins the lottery’s jackpot invites the other for a “Raise your Been %” tour. I say we start with Greenland, then stop in China, visit Aussiland, and finish up with Brazil… We both never went to either these countries, and I think they would substancially increase our scores!
Do you have the Been app too? What is your percentage? I am curious…
