10 Must Visit "Touristy" Countries

Was at the NATAS Travel fair yesterday and it rekindled my desire to "see the world". Before taking the " Road less Traveled", I need to take the " Road Traveled". Here is a list of 10 countries that are in my must see list before I die.

P.S : The list excludes all the countries ( numbering around 20) that I have seen till now.

1. New Zealand - One of the most beautiful countries on the planet. Nature at its pristine best.

2. Japan - A world unto itself. Mt.Fuji, Bullet trains, Kyoto, Tokyo, Japanese cuisine and people.

3. Russia - To quote Churchill " It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma".

4. Turkey - Asia meets Europe. Istanbul. Blue mosque.

5. Egypt - Pyramids, Nile, Alexandria.

6. Netherlands - Amsterdam, Dykes, Flower fields, wind mills, canals, museums.

7. Spain - Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao, Museums, Bull fighting.

8. Greece - Islands, Acropolis, Parthenon, Olympia, Delphi.

9. South Africa - Kruger, Durban, Pietermaritzbug, Cape town

10. Peru - Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Titicaca
