Yes, you should visit The Comoros too.

The last two weeks have been rather manic. I have amazingly enough received literally hundreds of calls, emails, and messages from media on every continent, except Antarctica. Most of them want to hear about my book, usually with some travel tips thrown in.

Just another day in Tehran.

My extensive travelling has naturally generated some experience, and I have here tried to collect various updated travel tips.

The basics
Over 30 travel tips that will take you through many different aspects of travel.

How to find cheap flights
The title pretty much says it all.

Travel hacks to visit many countries efficiently
You will find ways to increase your country collection fast, but please, please, please do take the time to explore the countries you visit too. Collecting countries is not like collecting postage stamps or coins – you should take your time to enjoy and explore the countries too.

Please let me know if you have other tips you would like to share, if you have exciting, horrible or fascinating experiences to tell or if you have any questions.

And don’t forget the #CountryChallenge – how many countries can you – or a friend – visit? Some of you might want to figure out how to visit Antarctica too.
