Islands I never knew – Thanks to Stats

One of the interesting things of checking out the ‘Stat’s page of WordPress, apart from the views, visitors and the count is the ‘Countries’. My eyes always go there first to check if there is a country which is unknown to me. I know that when people use proxy’s (like me, when I am at work) it would always show a different country from the one they are actually browsing. So there is no definite way to figure out anything based on the country data. It is still a piece of information. Once in a while I get to see a few new countries which haven’t been in the list till then. Out of the lot, so far, there have been two countries which I did not even know existed.  Not that I knew about the rest in depth. But at least I had heard their names somewhere sometime, so they weren’t alien to me.

a) Guernsey: A wee island in the English Channel and not part of the European Union.

b) Réunion: A French island in the Indian Ocean and part of the European Union.

For the visitors and viewers from these two islands, I am glad that you made the visit in turn letting me learn about your country. Are there any countries in your ‘Stats’ that you found interesting or you didn’t know they existed ?
