I love the quote by Matthew Karsten that an investment in travel is an investment in yourself. I pretty much live by this and am always planning my next adventure. There are so many places that I’d love to travel to; it can be hard deciding which is next on the list. So here are just a few countries that I think everyone should travel to, at least once in their life. I’d love to know what would be on your list and where you’d like to travel to next.
Australia is a much bigger country than a lot of people give it credit for. It is rich in culture and ethnic diversity, meaning that no two places are the same. It has amazing landscapes and places to explore, as well as great cities to see and beaches to relax on. The weather and climate is a big selling point for visiting there. Even in their months classed as winter, you are still going to get quite a lot of sunshine. So although their summer months are the warmest, you can pretty much go all year round. Which is great when planning travel, as it can be a little pricey. All worth it, though.
Africa is a large continent, but the whole thing had to be included in this list, as there are so many diverse and interesting countries within the continent. The wildlife is a massive selling point for making a trip to Africa. There are lots of different wildlife and safari parks to visit so you can make your trip exciting and fun. There are also lots of opportunities to volunteer in Ghana and places like Botswana. So it would be a trip unlike any other.
The UK offers such a wide range of things to experience, to say that it is such a small little island. There are the far flung and remote islands of Scotland, to the stunning views of the Lake District, to the beaches of Wales, and the hustle and bustle of the city of London. The history is rich in England, so there are lots of historical sites to see. There are lots of great places to stay and restaurants to eat in too. It can be easy to see lots of the country too as it isn’t very large. So if you want to experience all that it has to offer, then it is very possible.
Italy is the land of beautiful food and beautiful people. It has a good climate with a bit of something for everyone. There are stunning beaches as well as the cities to explore like Rome and Venice. The latter of which is a completely unique place. Where else do you know what you have to take a gondola to get anywhere? The history is rich in Italy too. It really is mind blowing just how old some of the sights in Italy are. A must visit for everyone at some point.
