Begining to think I should have made more categories..

I do wonder if England/Scotland/Wales/Cornwall count as one country or one each. (Cause I camped through most of England/Europe growing up)

I find that there are two ways to seperate countries. The first is by borders which is pretty easy to figure out by just looking at a map. The other way, and the one I prefer, is to seperate by cultures. For example remember how I noted that I had been to both Chile and Easter island? Well easter island falls under Chile's claim for land but its so culturally different that I dont even consider it the same place. This is largely subjective but I find it more accurate then simple border lines

To answer your questions, absolutely. England, scotland are vastly different cultures although wales/cornwall might fall into one or the other a lot of the time
