If you’re at all like myself, Dan, and others at Points with a Crew, you probably track your travels in some way. I’d assume U.S. states visited at a minimum. If you’re a bit more interested in a bit more granularity, then you might want to consider visiting every county (SEE: Visiting 3,143 counties).
Dan and I have both used a site called Most Traveled People to track our travels. Rather than just track the countries you’ve visited, the site divides the world into 874 distinct places. You track your travels against this list. Many of the places are provinces of countries; however, a good number are a unique part or territory of a country that (e.g. St. Pierre and Miquelon) that truly represent a different place. It’s incredibly hard to make a definitive division of the entire world into unique places, but Most Traveled People has done a fairly good job with their list. It balances total granularity ability to track and achieve well.
The old, ugly UI is finally gone
While the old Most Traveled People website functioned adequately in my experience, it wasn’t exactly…er…the most aesthetically pleasing. But that’s finally changed. Say hello to the new MTP site!
Looking at the map of my travels, you can see how much of the world I really have left to explore. The U.S. and Canada are looking good, but there are only a few other scattered countries. The new map UI is awesome and lets you modify your list simply by clicking on a place and checking the “visited” box.
Given that I’ve visited Russia, looking at a map of countries visited looks a whole lot better. In reality, I’ve just been to two oblasts. My total count is 68 MTP locations.
Login credentials remain the same, if you had a MTP account. The new site also has a better profile and generally better UX. I’m glad the website finally got a much needed face lift.
Do you use Most Traveled People to track your travels and UNESCO World Heritage sites?
