I'm Sue. My Dream is to travel to ALL 196 countries in the world and photograph/write about every one. So far I have travelled to 186.

One of the 100 Best Travelled People in the World

According to Nomadmania.com I’m currently the fifth most travelled person in the UK and the 100th in the world. The rankings change quite quickly! I have travelled to 186 countries (UN Nations plus 3) and 231/247 territories.

Closing in on the Dream


Until quite recently, I thought this was an unattainable dream, in terms of both cost and danger, countries stricken by war. But now I have A Plan and what looks like an achievable goal. There are only 10 countries left to visit. See the map...


Covid-19 has meant that I won't achieve my goal in 2020 as I had hoped. All my 2020 trips have now been cancelled except for my trip to Europe - amazing (especially Venice) with no tourists. See below.

See the World Through My Eyes - Travel Stories from Around the Whole Planet

The posts on this website tell the story of my travels so far, often solo, recorded in words and pictures – my own window on the world. I’m not going into competition with Lonely Planet. This is an entirely subjective travelogue, in the main reflecting my own impressions and experiences, been there, saw that, thought this. Dive in and read about the countries you’ve visited and the ones you haven’t. I’d love to hear your experiences so please do email, comment, get in touch…
