DIRECTORY OF TCC COUNTRIES

Here is the Travelers' Century Club's official list of
countries, a total of 315 as of January 2005. Although some
are not actually countries in their own right, they have been
included because they are removed from parent, either
geographically, politically or ethnologically. After
consideration as to how long one must have stayed in a
country or island group to qualify, it was decided that even
the shortest visit would suffice — even if only a port-of-
call, or a plane fuel stop. This greatly widens the field and
will give the traveler a better chance to qualify for one of
the most unusual clubs in the world. Anyone who has visited
100 or more of the places listed below is eligible to join.
