Kris Eitzinger #621

Maybe someone can help me - if have 2 questions:
1) How can I correct the number of visits? First I counted in Quick Enter and then I posted Trips ... so the number of visits to certain regions are not correct (because they are added together)
2) My map (1281) shows the correct countries - but the Map (quality of visits) is not correct - there are some countries marked which I marked wrong / How can I correct the Map (quality of visits)? I would like to delete some countries, although they are correct on the map (1281) - THANK YOU for your help!



TBT Official Dear Kris. 2) You may change manually the quality of visits under "Quick Enter". As regards question 1, your situation is untypical. I think if you want to delete countries, you have to manually remove them from Trips section, and then from Quick Enterl (please wait 15 minutes after deletion). If it does not work, please let us know


Kris Eitzinger Sorry, but my problem is not solved ... Under "Quick Enter" for example the region Norge - Lofoten is "never been" but on the Map "Quality of Visits" it is green. Maybe because we had a second profile under the same computer for a friend. And these are his countries. But his profile (taubenfalke) is now empty and the countries are in my profile. Can anyone help me? Thank you!


TBT Official Dear Kris, I reported your problem to our IT support. Let's hope they will help.

Please correct Jordan section. Wadi Rum is included in Jordan-South-Petra section, while it should be in Jordan-South Aqaba section according to maps. Thank you:)



TBT Official Dear Robert. Which list are you referring to? On the main 1281 TBT list Wadi Rum is correctly recognized in Aqaba region.


Robert Neves Im referring to Wadi Rum as WHS entry, which is included Jordan South section: http://thebesttravelled.com/en/exploreSingle/467/whs

In the TBT série Island in Australia miss the Rotnest Island near Perth



Kris Eitzinger yes, Rottnest Island (Western Australia) is missing

Dear TBT Admins,
Under experiences you suggest tasting walrus/muscox as something one might try in Norway. No-one this side of WW1 has eaten this in Norway, these are protected animals, and there isn't even illegal hunting on them. I suggest you change it for tasting whale/sealmeat instead.



Maurizio Giuliano hey you're here too...


TBT Official Thanks a lot for this... we are certainly not perfect. We will change this asap!

Dear TBT Admins,
Please check for more duplicates and typos that may need correction.

In Festivals - Russia:
- Cosmanautics Day NEW - 2 same entries. Do they celebrate it twice? :)
- Nashestvie, Moscow - and Invasion NEW - is not it the same, just a translation?

In American Cities - USA:
- Oxnard/Ventura (CA) NEW - seems very similar to Ventura/Oxnard (CA), old. ;)

In European Cities - Germany:
- Gelsenkirchen, and then it comes again in Bochum/Gelsenkirchen/Herne/Bottrop/Witten/Recklingshausen
- Ludwighafen am Rhein is missing S: Ludwigshafen am Rhein
- Kaiserslauten is missing R: Kaiserslautern

American Cities - Mexico:
- Chilpancigo - letter N is missing: Chilpancingo
- Tulancigo - same, N: Tulancingo

For some reason rather large cities of Posadas and San Luis in Argentina are missing from your list.

Thanks again for all your hard and dedicated work!



TBT Official Thanks a lot for all this...

It looks like the Great Barrier Reef in Australia has been lumped together with Belize? In Belize, it should be called the Belize Barrier Reefs.


Paul Clites #441

I'm starting to think about 2018 trips. I have an outline of a roughly 5-week wander through Russia in mind. I plan to do this train/plane/bus trip on my own. But I would like a Russia travel agent who deals with English-speaking clients to help with the original reservations, and also be on call to deal with surprises along the way that might require adjustments. Any recommendations based on your experiences?



Kirill Kravtsov Hi! If you want to visit Belarus please conact


Lucy Holbrook I'm doing trans Mongolian at the end of this year and have arranged the train tickets through Real Russia - excellent English and really helpful. They seem to arrange all related trips too. http://realrussia.co.uk


Steve Newcomer I second Lucy's suggestion. Realrussia.co.uk was extremely helpful with trains, buses, hotels and even private drivers, meet at train stations, etc.

XL suggestions : Île Dumet (Pole of the continental hemisphere) and "Le point 45°N 0° à Puynormand : à l’intersection du méridien de Greenwich et du 45ème parallèle". https://bordeaux2066.com/2014/11/24/le-point-45n-0-a-puynormand-a-lintersection-du-meridien-de-greenwich-et-du-45eme-parallele/


Madis E #2054

To the experiences
Dodgy stuff?:
*Fire a real gun
*Visit an aircraft carrier or another big warship
*Be in a warzone

*Go island hopping (example with a speedboat)

Eat Kama

*Should change the +45/-20 names and add Celsius as im sure many americans would look at the first +45 as a very easy challenge :D.

Why not a series on the bridges? The bridges are loaded with symbolism for a traveler.


Jonathann Gougnon #1634

Hello, I propose that in the category "wonders" be privileged sites not part of the list of World Heritage, in order to avoid duplicates. My first wonder proposal is Karni Mata Temple. Perhaps this place could also appear in the category "experiences".


Parys Lisiecki #1203

I propose CHAD or SISO only for cyclists


Madis E #2054

I think this amazing place https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derinkuyu_underground_city should also be included in the wonders section of TBT series.



Anne-Sophie Songo I do agree ! Wonderful place !


Tom Wong I agree

Tom Wong #358

How about the National Parks of the World?



TBT Official We thought about this list but we cannot promise - there are too many national parks and we cannot include them all. Choosing the most interesting ones is really difficult and time consuming. Any volunteers to help us will be more than welcome.


Tom Wong This National Geographic magazine listed 76 greatest national parks in the world. https://shop.nationalgeographic.com/product/magazines/special-issues/national-geographic-greatest-parks-of-the-world-special-issue. I have a list that I can send to TBT.

I'm looking for 1-2 people to join me on two trips. The first will be April 14-27 through ALL eleven TBT regions in the Southern Caucasus, plus quick side trips to two Turkey regions. I have worked the logistics myself, and have arranged a local tour guide for Azerbaijan/Nakhchivan, and another guide for Georgia/Armenia/Nagorno Karababakh. I'm just looking for travel companions and cost sharing. Most travel will be by car, so there is only room for 2 more. Separate, but back-to-back with the trip to Southern Caucasus, on April 27-May 15 I have arranged with Dmitry Lemeshev of Caucasus Explorer (www.caucasus-explorer.com) for a trip through ALL TBT regions of the North (Russia) Caucasus and some beyond that. This will include Abkhazia, Crimea, Rostov-on-Don, and all the regions from there eastward to the Caspian Sea, including South Ossetia, Inigushetia, Chechnya and Dagestan. As with the first trip, we are looking for another 1-3 people to go along. If you haven't yet read the most recent TBT electronic newsletter, check out the interview with Dmitry. This will be an unbelievable experience. If you are interested in the South Caucasus trip, contact me at pclites@hotmail.com. If you are interested in the Russian Caucasus trip, contact Dmitry. But hurry, because as Dmitry mentioned in his interview, getting visas and border-area permits takes a lot of time. I hope to have you join one or both of these trips.



Oleg Klymentyev Hi Paul, Please be advised that the only LEGAL way to visit Crimea is through Ukraine, where you'd have to obtain a special permit (see: http://mfa.gov.ua/en/consular-affairs/entering-ukraine/visa-requirements-for-foreigners ). There might be the same case with Abkhazia and South Ossetia - in relation to Georgia. All three regions mentioned are temporarily occupied by Russian Federation.


Last Chance to Influence How the World is Divided!

We are eliciting nominations which could eventually lead to changes in our Masterlist of 1281 Regions. If you feel that there are countries which have too few, too many or not well split areas, this is your chance to speak up. Your nominations will be considered by an Executive Committee of 5, and if deemed suitable will be put into a vote by our 12-member Committee of Global Travellers.

Please go here (http://thebesttravelled.com/forms/11) and explain what changes you would like to see. Please be specfic and clear (if you are not, we may ask you for further clarification). Your ideas will be made stronger if you have a clear justification for your nominations which you let us know about and will be communicated to our Committees. 

Thank you for making the TBT Masterlist a really global list!
