QuestionWhen have you "visited" a country? Pin
Sander Rossel30-Aug-14 9:37

I'd like to keep a list of countries I visited so I can see which parts of the world I haven't explored yet.
So I found a nice website, traveltip.org[^] (other recommendations are welcome), which let's me check visited countries per world part.
But what would qualify as "visited"?

For example, I've been in Tunisia for a good four hours. I had a fast tour through the centre of Tunis and then I left. Have I really visited Tunisia?
I pretty much did the same in Malta. Malta is very small though, so I guess you could say I've seen a good part of the country...
I've been to Vatican City even shorter, but I've really seen everything a tourist can see! So that certainly counts as visited.
I've also been in Avignon (France) for a day and I've travelled through the rest of France by bus (it was really just sitting in a bus), still I wouldn't say I've visited France.

Should I have spent at least one night in a country to be able to say I have visited it? That would give troubles in case of Vatican City...
And if all you do is sleep (maybe you're in transit) you also can't really call it a visit.
Or maybe you should have visited at least x cities in a country (which again isn't possible in Vatican City)?

I don't think problems get more first world than this and I realize it's up to me to say I've visited a country, but I was wondering what you guys think about it.
It's an OO world.
