How Many Continents Are There?

How many continents are there? How many do you want there to be?

As I discussed earlier, my adventure to Antarctica is actually part of a larger bucket list item: “Step on every continent.” So far, I have visited North America & South America and I will soon be stepping foot on Antarctica. It is the one continent I need to visit before I’m using a walker. That will leave me with four remaining continents – Africa, Europe, Asia & Australia – right?

It turns out that the answer is not so straightforward.
