Sightseeing the Continents; the Charms of Asia

Sightseeing the Global wonders of man and nature... Sightseeing the World as we know it...
I wish I have all the time and money to travel and visit them all! 

As of January 2019, I visited 94 out of 195 official states/countries (48.20%) across 5 continents around the world in which 3 of them were Overseas Filipino Worker while the remaining are for backpacking/leisure. Philippine Passport holders have a free visa / visa-on-arrival privilege on 68 countries. Additional 9 countries (total of 69) if working as a professional in Middle East (GCC) states and another on-condition visa privilege on some countries if holder of visa on Schengen, US or other OECD members. My travel addictiveness just started only in 2010. On the other hand, my home country Philippines, visiting it's 61 out of 81 official provinces (75.31%) as of March 2016.
