Credit for Traveling - Almost Like Frequent Flier Miles


I was thinking about it.

When you fly, you get frequent flier miles.

What about for countries you've visited?   You don't get "credit" for visiting more countries, its just a tally you keep.

What if you could get credit for countries you visited.  For example: If you visit 10 countries, you get silver status.  Visit 25 countries, get gold. Visit all of Southeast Asia, get credit for it.

Two things I'm curious about:

  1. Do you wish when you returned home from traveling, you got "credit" for where you've been?
  2. Would you travel more, if you knew there were milestones to hit?

I've been to 32 countries, but will anything special happen if I hit 40 countries, what about 50?
