After having returned from a 18 month trip earlier this week, I became the youngest Norwegian and among the ten youngest in the World to have visited every country at age 29.
There are some countries that I would not be very eager to go back to, simply because there is not a lot to see. These are countries include Liechtenstein, San Marino, Nauru, Tuvalu and Bahrain, Kuwait, Monaco and the Vatican. The rest I would love to visit, including unsafe countries like Afghanistan, Venezuela and Syria, which could have been listed among my top ten favourites if the security situation would have been more stable.
If the criteria for this list would have been for best food I would have said Italy, Lebanon and India. If my list was based on friendliest people I would have said Iran, Sudan and Algeria and best holiday/beach destinations would be Seychelles, Maldives and Barbados.
My top destination list on the other hand, is based on which countries can offer the best experiences for adventurous travellers like myself and are all destinations that have changed my views about the world around me:
