Gunnar Garfors, the first person to visit every nation in the globe at least twice and the holder of ten travel-related world records, points out that most "ordinary" travelers, too, have time constraints on their journeys, whether it's touring Paris for three days since that's all the holiday...
...or traveling around South America for a month because that's when your bus ticket expires. So ordinary travelers tend to skip countries or regions that they know about so they can cover more ground within their allowed time frame. This is why many people are surprised to learn that I've been to almost every country in Europe. The only countries in Africa that I haven't visited are Mauritius and Morocco. As for Asia, I've been to all but one of its countries. The one exception is North Korea, which I didn't go to due to politics. However, I did visit South Korea, so I consider it part of Asia even though it's not technically located there.
My journey has taken me through 94 countries, including Antarctica. It will take me another 10 years to visit them all again.
The hardest country to visit was probably Iran, because of the politics involved. But otherwise, they're all pretty much equal. There are no easy countries or difficult countries; any country could be either depending on how you choose to travel there. It's all about what interests you and where your heart is guided by these things.
According to the findings, the top eight most frequent passengers in the globe are:
By the end of 2018, twenty-four members have visited every location on the list. John Clouse of Evansville, Indiana, was the first to visit all of the organization's listed nations and was named "the world's most traveled man" by Guinness World Records, succeeding another TCC Club member, Parke G. Fisher.
The current record holders are Robert Fitzpatrick and James Reilly from Ireland who completed their journey in November 2018. They have been awarded the title "World's Most Traveled Man (Dual Award)".
John Young from Australia, who held the previous record of traveling 5 million miles (8 million km), lost it in September 2019 when Fitzpatrick and Reilly set a new record for miles traveled in a year, averaging 12,055 miles (19,340 km).
A dual award winner is eligible for both prizes. The awards ceremony will take place at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on 4 April 2020.
The TCC Club was founded in Evansville in 1945 by four men who were all active in sports and recreation programs during World War II. They decided to combine their resources to travel around the world after the war ended. The first trip was made by Tom Dolan from New York City who visited all seven continents.
If you start traveling at the age of 20 and continue until the age of 80, you'll have plenty of time to visit the entire planet. If you add all of the cities in the globe with populations of 100,000 or more, you get 3,200 options. If you only go to each country once, however, you won't be able to see it all.
The number one destination for tourists is obviously its own country, so let's not waste any time and travel now to Japan! The Japanese economy is growing very quickly and it expects its tourism industry to grow even faster soon after losing thousands of tourists to China due to recent natural disasters.
However, there are actually only 84 countries in the world today, so even if you visited every single one of them you wouldn't be able to see them all.
The next best option is to spread your trip over two or more continents. There are actually only 7 continents in the world, so this option will limit yourself greatly. Only 4% of travelers choose to spread their trips across multiple continents.
If you want to see everything possible, then the best option is to make use of the 70,000+ hotels around the world. This allows you to pick the place that most interests you and give yourself a good chance of being able to book a room there.
