Helen Keller(1880-1968) once wrote: “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”.

I could have stayed at home, gone to the library, watched documentaries, spoken to people and explored the World from the comfort of a chair in familiar surroundings. However loosely translated from the Danish scientist, Piet Hein, I have read: one must travel in order to understand that the World is round”.

With a background in logistics I have spent many hours planning the most optimal route in order to visit every country in the World. Well; here is the master plan by sequence and while it might not be pure genius it is the basics of what I am basing my travel plans on. Sure I might deviate from it a few times – but this is more or less how I have imagined to work my way through 203 countries:
