The Duchess of Plumewood's Top 10 'Other' Countries to Visit

Hi everyone, I'm Katherine and I blog over at The Duchess of Plumewood! Since most everyone who reads Casey's blog are travel fiends or at least wanderlust connoisseurs, I wanted to present something different in the travel department. Let's face it, when most people think of traveling abroad they think of: France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, or perhaps China (if they're feeling wild), but there are some places on earth that should not be overlooked. Not only for the fact that they are incredibly amazing and beautiful, but because they will make you go WOW when you're there. 

Here's a list of the Top Ten "Other" Countries to Visit

1. Bolivia: The Southern Altiplano and it's train cemetery & Salar de Uyuni the largest salt lake in the world

2. Zambia: Victoria Falls & The Zambize River & South Luangwa National Park

3. Montenegro: Hiking the Black Mountain & sunning in the bay

4. Chile: The Atacama Desert in which some parts haven't seen rain since record keeping began & Easter Island

5. Madagascar: The Rova Royal Palace & Analakely Market

6. Norway: Seeing the Auriela Borealis & The North Cape & The Snow Hotel

7. Sri Lanka: Adam's Peak & Yala National Park with free running leopards & Anuradhapura

8. Ecuador: The steepest stretch of railway in the western world & Rainforests & The Galapagos Islands

9. Iceland: The Hvitserkur the petrified sea monster & Gullfoss waterfall & Vatnajokull Ice Caves

10. Antarctica: Duh! 

So, the next time you start to plan a vacation, think about one of these places because let's face it, the road less traveled might be the best choice you can make!


Thanks for sharing, Katherine! We're heading to Montenegro on our Adriatic cruise next week, so yay! :) -C

  1. Norway is beautiful! I have family there, so I was lucky enough to spend six days in Oslo, Bergen, and the surrounding small towns where my family lives. I'm dying to go back and take my husband with me!

  2. I live in Norway and have just returned from a trip to Iceland, so I'm excited to see both places on this list - they are two of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited! And I would also love to visit Antarctica one day! :)

  3. Love this! South America and Southeast Asia are so underrated in the vacation industry!

  4. yes yes to all of these! I am dying to get to Zambia, Iceland, and Antarctica one day!

  5. I'm heading to Bolivia in July and I can't wait!! I hear that it's one of the least touristy countries in South America (and also the cheapest, which is a plus for me!) When I went to Chile I only went to Santiago and Valparaiso, didn't make it to the north of the country. this is a great list, hopefully I'll have a chance to visit the other 8 someday!

  6. 2/3/9 yes please to those 3... I wanna go go go!

  7. These ten are no "other" countries for me... I want to go wherever I haven't been! Which makes me go nuts from time to time though because I get scared that there isn't enough time :)

  8. Never been to any of those country's. I almost feel ashamed:-(
