I like to travel places that are very different to my own country. I live in Northern Europe where the weather can be harsh and landscapes although stunning can look bleak.
For me it's anywhere that is warm- a real treat for me, somewhere exotic perhaps in the tropics wher flora is lush and fauna vastly different. Different cuisines are alawys interesting, and differernt architectural style. Here in Scotland we have lots of formal Georgian and medieval architecture, so I like to see building types vastly different.
Places I have enjoyed are Indonesia, Morrocco, Gozo, Turkey, Greece, Seychelles and Thailand.
I expect if one of these countries was your homeland you may yearn to spend a snowy winter visiting castles in Scotland!!!
