Welcome to 'Geocaching around the Planet'

This site is dedicated to my hobbies : geocaching, geocoins, and traveling.

In 2006 I started a worldwide quest to discover a geocache in each of the 193 countries of the world, and to issue a personal geocoin for each country where I have placed or found a geocache.

As of Jan 1, 2013, I have geocached in more than 48 countries, and issued six original personal geocoins. And there's more to come. I issue a new geocoin every year or so, if my daytime job allows (I'm in computer sales...). It's been lots of fun so far, and I've met some great people along the way. I can only wish this positive trend will continue !

If you are new to geocaching, you probably wonder what this is all about, so I invite you to have a look at my Geocaching page, with several links to great sites where you can find more information. Beware ! If you get infected with the Geocaching virus, there is no known cure, so enter at your own risk ! In fact, it is one of the most rewarding hobbies I know, because it exercises your brain as much as your body, and it has to be done outdoors, which is something I love because of my (indoor) office job.!

If you have not heard about geocoins before, have a look at the Geocoins page on the site. You will be amazed at the diversity, the artistic quality and the dynamism of the Geocoin community.

For those who are following my travels and collecting my coins, the number of countries I have already Geocached in is available here.

On a regular base, a new Geocoin will be available for sale or trade. Visit my coin Gallery to see them.

One thing I noticed is that the most beautiful geocoins have been designed with the help of local folks, so I would be happy to have people from around the world participate in this project. If you are an artist, or a graphics designer, and would like to join in, look at this page and make sure you contact me. I need you!

Want to hear the latest ? Which countries I will visit next ? I've summarized the latest news on this Newspage. And please don't leave without adding your comments, impressions, feedback, suggestions, ideas. Here's where you can do it !

Come back to this site often, there will always be something new to discover. This Planet is so big and there is so much to see ! Let's enjoy it together.

Hoping to meet you one day during one of my Geocaching trips

So long
