If there is someone in this world that makes us envious it is Gunnar garfors, a Norwegian adventurer who, at the age of 37, had already managed to visit the 193 countries of the world, in addition to other territories that have not been recognized by the UN. Garfors managed to overcome this challenge on the island of Cape Verde, which is located on the coast of East Africa, in 2013. After achieving this, he wanted to make a list of the countries that everyone should visit once in their life.
