I enjoy travelling, at least when I can take some time to experience a few good things. Some places I'd like to visit include Mesa Verde National Park (Colorado), Iguaçu Falls (border of Brasil & Argentina), Perth (Australia), and St. Pierre & Miquelon (French colony off Canada).

When I went to Hong Kong in 1992, it was a dependent territory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. In 1997, it became a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.
When I went to Macau in 1992, it was a Portuguese colony. In 1999, it became a Sepcial Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.
When I went to Saint Martin in 2006, it was a part of Guadeloupe, a French overseas department, in the French West Indies. In 2007, Saint Martin separated from Guadeloupe and became a French overseas collectivity. However, since I had originally put the term "Guadeloupe" on this page, I keep it to remember things the way they were, although I have never been to any of Guadeloupe except Saint Martin which is no longer part of Gaudeloupe. The other side of the island (Sint Maartin) was part of the Netherlands Antilles when I went there, but the Netherlands Antilles no longer exists as a political unit.
Note: Although I believe in the separation of Church and State, and generally recognise all ecclesiastical lands as sovereignties distinct from the surrounding political lands, this chart only lists the political lands. If you'd like, you may see a list of churches I have visited.
The list of Native Sovereign Nations visited is incomplete. Should include Navajo, Ute, Cherokee of Oklahoma, and several more (e.g., all that I-40 in Oklahoma passes through).
