World Travels

I have traveled the world quite a lot in my life. I love to travel and usually go out of my way to visit a new country or place. I call this collective habit my "World Travels".

Definitions

First, let me define how I categorise the countries I have been to. This is necessary because I have stayed for variable lengths of time in many countries. It is a somewhat arbitrary distinction, however, it will help me categorise my World Travels.

Below is how I define my stay in countries:

Countries I have lived in 
any country I have stayed in for at least six months
Countries I have stayed in 
any country I have stayed in for at least one month but less than six months
Countries I have visited 
any country I have stayed in for at least one week but less than one month
Countries I have traveled to or through 
any country I have stayed in for less than one week
