    I cant take any off your list personally, but as there are galleries in Bangladesh and Georgia, I think they can be taken off those outstanding, as well as a few others I imagine.

    I'd wait and see who else adds their travels here first though. I can think of a certain Zoochatter who has uploaded photos in almost every Pacific Island nation gallery, among a couple other countries. More fun letting people add in rather than going through the gallery I think.

    Thank you!

    Well that is still too added :)

    Sri Lanka was (funnily enough) not done! Thanks! :)

    Actually my experiences of Switzerland are the same - the inside of (Geneva) airport.
    I think you took three off so thanks a lot!

    I think so too, although if that person doesn't see this thread, then we might be able to cross them out for him...

    If you didn’t pass through immigration you physically have but technically haven’t.

    I’ve been to 20 countries but all have been mentioned.

    Last month I added 3 new countries to my list, unfortunately none are completely new to the challenge but wanted to share nonetheless:

    1. Zambia
    2. South Africa
    3. Ethiopia

    with another airport only stop in Ivory Coast (I know I know, doesn't actually count!)

    I hope to share photos from these as soon as I have some time to sort them out! Probably around 50 new mammal species for me! Mostly wild but some also in captivity!

    I'm not very well traveled, but have been to at least one that I think is still on the list.

    - Belize - (@jwer took this one from me)
    - Honduras
    - Italy
    - Mexico
    - United States

    I have also been to the Cayman Islands, but that doesn't count as it is an overseas territory.

    Was it in an airport or something like that? Because that doesn't count.

    @NSU42 same rule applies for Honduras

    Nope. Where would I have been going that I only spent time in an airport there? I haven't gone further south as you can see from my list. That would also be a weird connection to Mexico.
