First, let's take me as an example. I have been to ten countries, as you can see in the list below.
- United States
- Cayman Islands (UK)
- South Africa
- France, which is where we currently are
So I have been to the least number of countries in the whole family.
Next is Carver who has been to eleven countries. In addition to the ten that I have been to, he has been to Canada, which I cannot recall having ever gone to.
After that is the tie on high. The tie is currently at twelve. My parents have both been to all the countries on Carver's list, plus the Bahamas. (They have also been to the UK itself, but since the Cayman Islands are owned by the UK, that doesn't count as a separate country.)
We have rules for what we count as going into a country. We have decided that even though all four of us have been in Qatar, we were only in the Doha International Airport for connecting from one flight to another. So we don't count this as having really been in Qatar.
We hope to extend the number of countries we have seen in the future as we continue this trip around the world. Soon, we will all add Italy!
