Asia / Middle East

It feels a bit awkward squeezing the Middle East (and Turkey!) into this section but, hey, them’s the rules. Apparently. Nonetheless, this list is far too diverse to sum up in some concise overview. So instead I’ll just tell you the ones that really stood out: Nepal (over and over), Thailand (multiple visits as well) and Mongolia (just the once, for now). Of course, Turkey, Bali, India, Petra, the Great Wall of China, Bagan and Angkor Wat are also absolute must-sees. Plus, the rest were pretty great, too. The point is, Asia is huge and there is enough to see to last you a lifetime. Better get started.
