A good challenge. Not surprised to see a bunch of island countries clustered together at the bottom of the stats.

Damn this guy has been to a lot of countries. I can't believe he's been to nearly every island nation on the planet but not Fiji and Iceland, two of the most touristy island nations. Plus every Canadian province but only 5 US states, and that many African countries but not Egypt. Incredible how many places he's been though.

If you believe it. Visited North Korea but not South Korea? A bit skeptical of that...

Guyana goes as far down South as Suriname, but it starts further North, so its center is further North. Still, weird!

I love how Ecuador the nation named after its position relative to the equator was not on the list. However, I suppose Equatorial Guinea was some consolation though.

Equator definitely doesn´t pass through Rwanda, thus not even Burundi, they are both entirely on the southern hemisphere.
