I have a goal to visit fifty different countries by the time I'm fifty.  As I write this (Matt, not Jane)  I'm 47.  I've currently been to the countries in bold.  I’m currently on forty-five.

We’re currently in Iceland. Canada and Cuba follow next week, of which Cuba is new and will be forty-six.

In 2020 it’ll be three different countries. Two sets of two weeks, and a single week. The plan is the single week will be Montenegro.

I’ve been to the countries in green. Planned trips are in blue.
