I’m thinking Egypt.
I’ve always wanted to go there. I’ve had an obsession with ancient Egypt for as long as I can remember - seriously, I remember getting yellow paper and turning my Barbie and Ken dolls into pharoahs and kings and queens by giving them gold cuffs and neck things and crowns. I would have been no older than about 8.
On top of the incredible history that is there, it will be interesting to get a bit of Middle Eastern culture (however small), and get a better understanding of what modern Egypt is like, because honestly, apart from hearing about the riots and people getting angry about stuff over the last couple of years, I have a dismal knowledge of the place from about 1000BC onwards. I know, shocking. But hey, my obsession was ancient Egypt. Things got a lot less interesting once they stopped with the pyramids other monuments and kohl and Senet and various Gods and cool crowns.
