My profile claims erroneously that I'd have visited in Syria, Pakistan and Svalbard, why?

The website is humbly suggesting you visit these destinations.

I guess you are referring to the stats page? I can see on your trip map that you haven't mapped anything there, but I do remember this happening to someone else before... let me check with Peter!

I'm looking into this at the moment. The Syria one is due to your visit to the Golan Heights - this is a disputed territory so probably should not have any country associated to it. Somehow though, we've given it to Syria (if only things were so easily resolved).

We did a big restructuring of our data not too long ago which caused a few locations to be categorised wrongly. This is why this one all of a sudden was added to Syria.

The others I can't quite make so much sense of, but I'm checking up on them.

Your profile stats should be all ok again now. Still looking into if there's a way to fix it on a larger scale, since others are also likely affected, but your particular problem cases are at least fixed.

This is a problem also afaik only affecting trips that were previously mapped. New ones you map now should not have the same problem.
