The 21 countries we visited had a wide range of diversity of nature, terrain, people and culture. To provide a little more in-depth look at each country, I have created a table listing:

  • Population (and country / dependent area world rank)
  • Area (and country / dependent area world rank)
  • Life Expectancy at Birth in Years (and world rank)
  • GDP Per Capita – PPP (and world rank)
  • Median Age in Years
