First, look through the lesser achievements to see which areas you have completed. For example: I was missing the world traveler achievement and the one for every location in the Southern Shelf/Three-Horns/Tundra Express areas. I fast traveled to each of those locales and checked my map for any gaps or fog-of-war edges. Turns out, I was missing some stupid little camp at the southern end of Three-Horns Valley. Drove/walked down there and both achievements popped.

Good luck.

I've received all three except for the one with "World Traveler". I'll explore for it one day, but that had me intrigued.

You look under puppy's message.

A few areas that people easily miss are the Southern Shelf Bay that no mission or quest will take you, and there is no fast travel for it. Another easy to miss spot is in Eridium Blight, the little area protected by the electricity fence near the starting point/gate in the Hyperion wall.
Last easy to miss spots are the Friendship Gulog(I think that's the name) or the basement part of the Hodunk bar.

I need the world traveler achievement also even though I have all the other location based achievements. I do know the Gulag is not a factor.....

This link has a list of what you need:

And this one has a really good map with every location in the game, click on the map once to enlarge it:

The area that I'm missing is going to be a b**** because I checked all my maps and have no blacked out areasm so it's in an area that I've been to already, just haven't been in the right part of it I guess.

One area that most people miss is in Sawtooth Cauldron. All the way on top of the Spire, where Brick tells you to jump off to be awesome, turn around and look down on the other side, youll see a campsite. Its a little blacked out area that most people miss. Just hop off the tower and youll land there and get it.

Everyone mentions that but you have to go to Avie's campsite to get the Blight Explorer achievement which he says he already has.
