How about PNG? Its colourful, timeless and really not part of this world when you think about it. Also the people are lovely and friendly.

My suggestion is Antarctica. Thanks for writing such a useful blog. I enjoy reading about your experiences and your advice when it comes to flying.

I think you should consider Sweden becoming your 50th destination, it would be your first of the countries in the Nordic region and we are next to take over the chairman seat in the European union, so there will be a large number of people coming over to Sweden during the next couple of months.

Chernobyl?

How about Cyprus? My partner & I visited during the AZ YYZ-LCA "special" and it was a wonderful trip. Pictured is from a daytrip to the Turkish side of Nicosia/Lefkosia.

May I suggest Israel? It's one country everybody should visit at least once. It's got natural beauty, it's packed with history and archaeology, and it's terrifically interesting. Not an easy place to live in, but wonderful to visit.

It's also not trivial to get to. Land crossing is possible (from Egypt and Jordan only) but tricky, whereas flights are quite limited to westward approach, if you see what I mean.

When you add an entry for Israel, do mention that in addition to TLV one can also fly to ETH.

I would suggest Hawaii, as this year it celebrates 50 years as the 50th State.

I suggest Croatia!

Albania! Can get here by boat/ferry, many international flights, and it also shares land borders with Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Greece.

Writing you from here right now! Beautiful country.

Been to Sabah, Malaysia yet?

Mountains, islands, scuba diving, jungle trekking, and the often miss-pronounced Orang Utan.

I'd suggest Madagascar with its multiple options.

How to get to ...Costa Rica would be my choice. I've got it on my list of places to visit. Prehaps a guide on how to get there would give me the push I need to actually go...

Montenegro! It's the newest country in the world (at least it was when I visited, 2 summers ago), and you can easily get to it from Croatia or Bosnia, which are both worth visiting.

The sea town of Kotor is an easy drive from Dubrovnik and has an old fort high on the hill with a rock staircase good for a day climb. Inland, the limestone mountains look like something out of a Star Wars movie, it's shocking that they're not in movies.

Montenegro is one of the few places I've been that nobody else I know has ever heard of, let alone traveled to.

North Korea!

Truly a fascinating/intriguing destination, and of all the places in the world, probably one of the few for which a potential traveler would need the MOST expert help!

Burlington, Vermont. Consistently voted one of the best places to live. Come visit us and see why.

I suggest you stop doing this boring feature. I RSS'd your blog because you had some interesting things to say about your *own* experiences.

I don't care how to get to croatia? Especially since it's obvious you've never been to all of these places.

Share more about your own experiences! I enjoy those!

Thanks @Eric Bozinny for the feedback.

The "how to get to" series is about sharing information and tips on how to get to places cheaply and easily, rather than the things you can do and experience at each place.

Some countries and places are difficult and expensive to get to. As I intend going everywhere (so far I've been to over 100 countries), I've spent a lot of time learning how to get around the globe cheaply.

I'll continue to post about my own travel experiences separately, both in this blog and elsewhere.
