I'm now at 126, with Guyana and Suriname as the latest in 2017. I don't think I'll stop visiting new countries, but it is not a priority. One thing that limits my interest in new countries is that lots of those I haven't visited yet are dangerous, and many have visa regulations that would force me to leave my precious passport in the claws of postal services.
