Hillary Clinton traveled to 112 countries -- we made an awesome slide show," Foreign Policy introduced its homage to the Secretary of State who left office today.
The slide show presents one image from each of the countries she visited over the last four years. And they're in alphabetical order.
Last July, Hillary Clinton, former first lady, U.S. senator, and Democratic presidential candidate, added another lofty title to her resume: the most traveled secretary of state in U.S. history in terms of countries visited. She nabbed the crown during an epic 13-day, 27,000-mile journey that sent her surging past former record-holder Madeleine Albright (96 countries), with an itinerary that brought Clinton through France, Afghanistan, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Egypt, and Israel. It was "absurd, even for us," one staffer said at the time.
But Clinton didn't stop there. She's tacked on 10 more countries since July, bringing the final sum to 112. Her total time spent traveling will add up to 2084.21 hours (or 86.8 days), and she will have racked up 956,733 miles.
