The top five Countries I’d like to Visit Before I Die
I still have loads of countries I want to visit in my lifetime and here are the 5 on the top of my list.
A little-known country, Lichtenstein is a place I would like to go because of its fairytale landscape. The Schloss Vadus is the main attraction as it sits in a range of forest looking upon the capital of Lichtenstein, Vadus. Schloss Vadus is a castle where the Prince of Lichtenstein lives, so isn’t open to the public. However, hopefully, he’d invite me round for some sandwiches. Lichenstein is Europe least visited country but has a great neutral history, the last military action they saw was the Austria-Prussian war. During the Austrian-Prussian war, they sent 80 soldiers to guard the Tyrolean border and returned with 81 troops, as they recruited another. What a great story that is and more people should visit Lichtenstein, as it is picturesque quiet country. I may visit Lichenstein when I travel to Switzerland in July!
Home to one of the wonders of the world, Christ the Redeemer, which looks over the busy city of Rio De Janiero, Brazil has a lot to offer. Brazil would be a great place to explore, with its carnival atmosphere and sunny weather, they also have a mountain called the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Unfortunately, however, it isn’t a giant loaf of sugar. Brazil is also home of beaches and samba football, which I would love to experience. Showing the Brazilians my silky skills with a ball at my feet. Although Brazil has a massive crime and kidnapping rate, I still believe it to be a place I would to experience.
Having discovered this country through a PlayStation 2 game, Syphon Filter: Omega Strain, I have always wanted to travel here. Burma main religion is Buddhism, they hold many grand temples, such as the Ananda Temple and Shwedagon Pagoda. These temples were built 1000 of years ago, thus there is a vast history behind them. I’d love to travel in a hot air balloon and really take in the beautiful culture they have on display. It is a beautiful country, however, I’m against the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslim’s, the Rohingya Muslim’s are unable to vote and have fewer rights than other natives there. Hope for Rohingya Muslim has not been realised by Aung San Suu Kyi becoming a chancellor, she has however ignored the subject. The Dali LLama calling on her to do more.
With greats sights like Petra (an ancient rock-cut city in a deep valley) and Amman (ancient ruins), there is a lot of things to do in Jordan. Jordan is said to be the safest place in the Middle East because of all the heritages sights and its overall friendliness. There is also the Dead Sea, where you cannot swim in it because of its famous hypersaline water so you can float the day away. The country is also run by King Abuddulah II who made ISIS poo themselves when he declared them at war with ISIS after they had killed a Jordan pilot. Jordan is a good country all around and would love to visit some of there world heritage sites.
Another Middle Eastern country I would like to visit is Isreal. The most religious place a Christian, Jew and Muslim can go to due to The Temple of the Mount in Jerusalem. Near Jerusalem, there is also Bethlehem, in which Jesus was born which attracts Christian pilgrimages, and is many Christmas carols. I would like to visit the most religious place in the world and feel the importance it would it release. I would also like to visit the Holy Lands to see why everyone is fighting over it. I might even try to push an equal two-state solution while I was there. Israel still holding more power than over Palestinians, leaving them with little rights and setting up illegal settlements.
