This Is What Every Single Country In The World Looks Like For One Second

This crazy person decided to visit them all without flying.

1. A guy from Liverpool visited every country in the world without ever boarding a plane.

Between January 2009 and December 2012, film-maker Graham Hughes made it his mission to visit Earth’s 201 countries without ever using air travel.
