So yesterday, I told you about this “Been” application that lets you keep records of where you’ve been in the world, and what percentage of the countries you’ve visited so far.
I hit a disappointing (to say the least) 8%, and there was way more grey there, than I could stand to stare at. (you can check it out here)
Did I get rid of “Been”? No… But I knew I had to do something to (try to) make me feel better about my map. So I thought “hey, I might not have been to that many countries yet, but a lot of countries have visited The Cove since I opened it!”
So I cleared all the countries in my application, and started over using my WordPress statistics. This took quite a while, and there were so many (166) that I started thinking, “now this will be impressive!”
I wouldn’t go as far as to say I was petrified, but I sure didn’t think there would be so many little countries out there I still hadn’t recieved a visit from. And of course, there is still Greenland, who hasn’t showed up to this day, despite my many efforts to seduce the big piece of land…
Still, this map looks a lot better than yesterday’s, and I have hope that with time, I’ll improve that percentage. Hope can take you a long way… Even when it comes to feeble things like this world map obsession of mine…
