Why are so many people listing Scotland as a separate country? And Wales too! (Hint: they are both part of the United Kingdom.)


Kathy

Edit: Oh, I see someone listed Northern Ireland. Also part of the UK!

Hoping to add UAE this year to get back to 29.

Take the road less travelled...but only if it means more miles.

But they all four (the three you mention plus England) have their own national sports teams. Doesn't that make them countries?

It was ozstamps, not me, who made up the rules!

I'm just kind of unofficially enforcing them, for the common weal! No self-interest or anything like that....no hissy fit about how I could have made my total 35 instead of 32 if I had done like the other cheaters....but nooooo, I always follow the rules!

Beckles,

While Texas may seem like another country, it's part of the US...no matter what those Texans say.

(Besides, someone has to knock me out of place with least countries visited)
