Not a big fan:
- He spent only a small amount of time in most of the countries. If your objective is just to check a country for a few hours, then to checklist it, OK, he got that.

Yes, I admire his perseverance and efforts, and I envy his success.
But with all this “let’s get it over with, there are hundreds of countries to visit, hurry!”-philosophy, I’m not a big fan.
