There are 193 official countries on Earth. Fewer than 100 people have seen them all. The 34 people interviewed for this book have made it their life mission to visit every last one of them. Jam-packed with nearly 500 pages, these revealing Q&A interviews examine the lives of ordinary people who have undertaken extraordinary travels in their quest to visit every country in the world. Learn about their adventures and explore the highs and lows of what it means to be an extreme traveler, from near-death experiences to moments that have left even the most jaded traveler speechless. How did they do this? What have they sacrificed? What compelled these people to go beyond the realm of the ordinary tourist to see the entire world? The answers to these questions and more are contained in this rare look inside the minds of some of the world's most-traveled people. Their stories, ranging from being questioned by U.S. Special Forces while doing a solo tour of war torn Iraq, to showing a Costco ID card in order to tour a restricted launching place for space satellites in French Guiana, to entering Libya during Arab Spring and getting caught in the cross fire of cigarette smugglers, and many more, are guaranteed to fascinate and entertain every travel fan.… (mere)

Ryan Trapp, along with co-author Lee Abbamonte interviewed 34 of the 98 people in history that have (or claim to have) traveled to every country (as in the UN member states list) in the world. Answers to no less than 30 questions by 20 of them make up the content of this book. How did these frequent travelers grow up, catch the travel virus? What are their highlights and lowlights? Which place would they highly recommended or not visit ever again? How much luggage is necessary? Do you need to be rich and retired to travel that much? What makes people want to chase all the 193 countries way beyond the obvious tourist hot spots?
Chasing 193: The Quest to Visit Every Country in the World. A single read of all 20 may be too much, though it's really interesting to get a peek behind this hobby of the interviewed. I missed personal stories by Trapp and Abbamonte themselves, even though Trapp himself has about 45 more countries to go. ( )
