Some islands (such as Crete or Norfolk Island) are listed separately if they are beyond 100 miles of the mainland. Iíve met several people in weird places like Pitcairn Island and Tristan da Cunha who are chasing down this list in quite an obsessive, even slavish manner.

As for myself, I have currently visited 187 of which 118 are fully sovereign/UN member states. My list is divided as per the TCC Club. http://travelerscenturyclub.org/coun...nd-territories
