Children really do expand one's horizons.  Who would have thought that trying to keep up with them would lead us to New Zealand, Australia, Japan, France, Germany, Switzerland ... and to one of the 25 Least Visited Countries in the World?

Tied with Djibouti (sort of; the tourist counts are from different years), sandwiched between the Central African Republic and Sierra Leone, is beautiful Liechtenstein.  Here's the entire list:

  1. Nauru (200 tourists)
  2. Somalia
  3. Tuvalu (1200 tourists
  4. Kiribati
  5. Marshall Islands
  6. Equatorial Guinea
  7. Turkmenistan
  8. Sao Tome and Principe
  9. Comoros (15,000 tourists)
  10. Afghanistan
  11. Solomon Islands
  12. Micronesia
  13. Mauritania
  14. Guinea-Bissau
  15. Libya
  16. North Korea (35,000 tourists)
  17. Bhutan
  18. Timor-Leste
  19. Tonga
  20. Sierra Leone
  21. Djibouti
  22. Liechtenstein (53,000 tourists)
  23. Central African Republic
  24. Chad
  25. Dominica (73,000 tourists)

There's a small chance we may get to Dominca on a Caribbean cruise, but the others are long shots, by a long shot.

Liechtenstein is a beautiful and pleasant country, and an easy day trip from many places in Switzerland.  I highly recommend a visit if you're in the neighborhood.

Perhaps we should have paid the 10 francs (each) to get our passports stamped while we were there!

Dominica was on our shortlist for honeymoon destinations - well, ok, maybe only mine. Janet was more for Thailand, and in the end we split the difference...

Good choice. Neither Dominica nor Thailand would have given Janet a new continent on her record. :)

I've only been to Liechtenstein and really don't have plans for any of the others. Although, maybe it would worth a visit to Tuvalu just to be able to say I had visited the capital city of Funafuti!

I find it funny that I may be your reason for getting to Liechtenstein, but I've never been there myself!

We can fix that, Janet.

If you cant get to Tuvalu, Sarah, we can take you to Lot A Fun Avenue here in Central Florida.
