10 of the Best Countries I’ve Visited to Inspire You to Travel (When it’s Safe to do so!)

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I’ve missed the most since the pandemic began is travel. I miss being able to pack my suitcase, get on a plane and discover a new place. This explains why I wrote this article: I wanted to remember my favorite trips. Know that if you are feeling nostalgic or if it’s not your day, you can take your time to dive back into your pre-Covid photos. To make you feel better, here is my list of the best countries I’ve visited!

 

South Africa

I dreamt of visiting this country for a long time. I got really interested when I started studying Nelson Mandela in school. His story inspired me so much that I sought to learn about the history of the country. Since then, I’ve wanted to visit this magnificent country. It didn’t disappoint – I’d highly recommend a trip there.

PS. When I was on a safari, I had the chance to meet an amazing lion and take some snaps.

 
If I had to choose one word or two to describe the country: diverse

Argentina 

Argentina is a unique country. It is the first country that made me feel tiny – it is so immense and visiting Argentina is the best way to humbly recharge the batteries.

If I had to choose a word or two to describe the country: immense.

Finland 

Finland is the country of childhood dreams and I see this country as a peaceful and ideal place. I had the chance to visit this country when I was a child, it amazed me even more, which is perhaps why I hold such a positive memory of Finland.

If I had to choose a word or two to designate to the country: childhood.

United States

I lived in the USA for a year and it was a unique experience. I got to see the positive and negative sides of the culture and it was even more fascinating knowing I was deep in the Wisconsin countryside. I recommend this country as it hides lots of wonder behind the image we are often presented.

If I had to choose a word or two to designate to the country: freedom.

Iceland 

I loved this country – both the landscape and the culture. There is an authenticity and something unique to the country. If you want to find yourself alone in peace and quiet, this is the country to choose!

If I had to choose a word or two to describe the country: icy wonder.

New Zealand

New Zealand has a very positive and fun image. I met so many French people there that I felt at home. It is the kind of country students dreamed of, for a new start, for something positive.

If I had to choose a word or two to describe the country: fun.

United Kingdom

I have been to the UK several times, but moved to London in September. The country is very interesting and is very rich in scenery and culture. However, I still need to find out more about the UK.

If I had to choose a word or two to describe the country: original.

Australia

I have one regret about Australia: it is only to have stayed there for two weeks. I get the impression that I only saw a tiny part of what I could have seen, and it is frustrating because Australia is so magnificent. 

If I had to choose a word or two to describe the country: great.

Croatia

I was in Croatia the year of the World Cup (without knowing that Croatia was going to be in the final). In other words, I spent the weekend of the final partying with Croats and it was crazy!

If I had to choose a word or two to designate to the country: World Cup.

France 

As a frenchie, I need to show off my country. It is one of the best countries in the world. There is a lot of diversity depending on where you are. It is one of the only countries that has everything: a great culture, grand mountains, great beaches, the sea etc…. No matter where you go, it is going to be beautiful. 

If I had to choose one word or two to designate to the country: home.

Anyway, I hope this little list has inspired you and helped you see the positive side of everything: we can’t travel yet, but soon we will, and it will be even more beautiful when we do.
