Top 10 Highlights of Henrik Jeppesen’s Travels


My name is Henrik Jeppesen, and I am the owner of this website, EveryCountryInTheWorld.com. You can read more about me and my top 10 travel highlights below.

I went alone to Egypt when I was 17 in 2006 and learned a lot along the way. In 2016 I completed my project of visiting every country in the world. I did it on a low budget with help from more than 100 airlines and many hotels. I was born in Denmark in 1988 and grew up close to our country’s first national park, where I have spent a lot of time.

I had many challenges in my project, and I did extreme things like hitchhiking with hundredths of cars, sleeping in some public places and sometimes going hungry to bed. I had a big focus on keeping a low budget and following a hard discipline with money-saving to increase the possibility of visiting all the world’s countries.

After visiting every country in the world, I wrote a lot about my travels, and now I find it interesting to feature other travellers and hear great stories. EveryCountryInTheWorld.com is focusing on big travellers, stories and travel tips.

In 2016, I completed the United Nations list of 193 countries as well as the two observer states, the Holy See and the State of Palestine.

Below is a list of every country in the world and capitals.

Some countries have more than one capital, with South Africa being the only country to have three. A unique arrangement to share power across regions. You can find more information about the countries with more than one capital in this article by CNN.

  Top 10 Best Resorts in the Maldives

 


I have travelled more than 3,200 days in my life, including domestic travel days in Denmark and Estonia, the only two countries I have lived. I could have visited every country in the world in less than two years like some have, but I think travelling or maybe rather transitting so fast between countries isn’t the most enjoyable way of travelling.

I don’t think there is a clear definition of what a territory is, and it’s subjective how many there are. Travelers’ Century Club has made a list of 329 countries and territories, and on that list, I have been to 300 including all 193 countries. 300 minus 193 countries = I must have visited 107 territories according to the perhaps most reliable list of countries and territories.

Some of the territories I have visited include Abkhazia, Cabinda, Christmas Island, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Fernando de Noronha, Greenland, Kashmir, Montserrat, Ogasawara, Rodrigues, Socotra, South Georgia Island, Spitsbergen, Tibet, and Transnistria.


I am very interested in islands, especially remote inhabited islands. Although many aren’t independent countries, it can feel like arriving in a new country when arriving at an inhabited island. I have visited hundreds of islands, but I haven’t counted exactly how many. With the inspiration of the Michelin guide, I rank islands below. Recommended (R), 1, 2 and 3 stars after how much I like them or after how special the experience was.

  How Many Countries Are There in the World?


If I can only pick one country as my favourite country to visit, I would pick South Africa. I’ve had some of the best days of my life in South Africa; it’s been fascinating to be there with many exciting things to do. It’s a diverse country with stunning nature, world-class beaches, some of the world’s best safari experiences and my favourite city in the world, Cape Town.

I’ve had a lot of fantastic food in the country, met fascinating people, and finally, I like the excellent value for money. I have spent almost five months in the country so far and been to all nine provinces, but there is still a lot more I would like to experience, although I am very thankful for the many experiences I’ve had in this fascinating country.


I have visited every country in the world, and one of the countries I think about the most is the Maldives. It’s one of the countries that have made the strongest impression on me, given me some of my best memories and the number one country I would like to visit with my wife after I got married in 2020.

I have stayed at approximately 60 private island resorts in the Maldives, a country I also consider one of the most beautiful in the world because of its gorgeous archipelago with stunning islands and pristine beaches. There are approximately 1,200 islands in the Maldives, but only about 200 of them are inhabited.

I have visited several local islands, but what really fascinated me about the Maldives is world-class private island resorts. I would very much like to experience many more islands in the Maldives in the future.


I have visited more than 1,000 destinations in the world. Some of my favourite destinations include:

Aitutaki, Cook Islands
Azores
Bali, Indonesia
Bonaire, Caribbean
Bornholm Island, Denmark
Colorado, USA
County Laois, Ireland
Dominica, Caribbean
Douro Valley, Portugal
Faroe Islands
Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
Fesdu Island, Maldives
Frégate Island Seychelles
Funen Island, Denmark
Gothenburg, Sweden
Hiiumaa, Estonia
Krüger National Park, South Africa
Langkawi, Malaysia
New York City, USA
Normandy, France
North Island, Seychelles
Paris, France
Principe Island, Sao Tome and Principe
Saaremaa, Estonia
Singita Grumeti Reserves, Tanzania
Skåne, Sweden
Socotra Island, Yemen
Sossusvlei desert of Namibia
South Funen Archipelago, Denmark
Stockholm, Sweden
Sydney, Australia
Tallinn, Estonia
Tasmania, Australia
Tuscany, Italy
Western Cape, South Africa

And many more.


I love my country for both living and travel. It is one of the best countries in the world for quality of life. For travel, there are a lot of countries with a lot more to offer, but we actually have enough for several months of travelling. We are much more than Copenhagen.

Besides our capital, we have almost 80 inhabited islands, of which I have visited more than 50, and visiting islands is something I really enjoy. Anholt, Avernakø, Bornholm, Christiansø and Livø are all well worth a visit. If you like Copenhagen, we have three other cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants, Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg. They all have great attractions and food. We also have beautiful and famous castles, great national parks, theme parks and a lot more. We are a great country to visit, but unfortunately, one of the most expensive and I understand if Denmark is not at the top of your list for this reason.

I am happily married to Wládvia from Brazil. We live in Estonia. I have a big health issue which has been very expensive. Jaw pain every day since June 2019 means I don’t have much money for travelling, and as a result, I don’t travel as much as I use to, but I still travel quite a lot. I, of course, hope to become pain-free and travel a lot more, but there is no guarantee. I have not found a solution to my health issues, and after visiting around 40 specialists, I don’t have a diagnose. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I have a big focus on my health. My dream is to become pain-free, but if it’s not possible, I am sure self-care can reduce the daily pain level and improve the quality of life. You can find more information about my health issue here.

For the future, I am very interested in visiting new inhabited islands, as it can have a similar feel to when I visited a new country. I enjoy peaceful, quiet nature destinations with no stress. Some islands are more exciting than others, and there are enough inhabited islands to explore for a whole lifetime, so I am not trying to visit every inhabited island in the world. Instead, I visit one at a time without pressure or deadline.
