8 Things You Might Not Have Known About Andorra

Posted by on June 30, 2011

Yesterday I arrived in my 100th country: the tiny Principality of Andorra!

As most people have no knowledge of this nation sandwitched between France and Spain, I figured it was a good time for another installment of “8 Things You Might Not Have Known…”

1) Andorra is a country

OK, maybe most of you probably know this, but there are a lot of people out there that have no clue that Andorra is actually a country. One woman I spoke with today visited the US and people didn’t believe there was a country called Andorra. Yes, it does exists and has been around in some form for almost 1,000 years. It has a seat in the United Nations, an Olympic team and diplomatic relations with other countries. It is a real country.
