If you’re an avid traveler, you’ve probably visited or plan to visit some of the most beautiful places on the planet. The best part about traveling is learning new things and exploring new places.

You learn so much about yourself and how to maneuver around a new space. You also get the opportunity to absorb new experiences by allowing yourself to interact with the culture, food, language and people.  

The best part can sometimes be returning to your place of origin and describing your adventures to all your loved ones.

However, if you feel like you want to expand your travel horizons, you might be missing out on these wonderful countries, that technically and officially exist, but you still drop by. Don’t miss out on telling a travel story of a lifetime and include them to your wander-list! These places have governments, and even their own flag, but may not be recognized by the UN general assembly or are lesser known entities.

Here are our top picks of countries that you won’t be able to find on the map but are worth the travel.  

Barotseland

This one-of-a-kind mobile kingdom allows people to move towards higher pastures as floodwaters from the Zambezi River start to seep into their villages.

The area is almost 500 years old and was under British rule for a long time and less than a decade ago the royal family announced peaceful distance from Zambia.

Visit this beautiful country for its national parks for the most scenic landscapes and exploring unique wildlife.

Greenland

You can enjoy some of the most adventurous activities here including an expedition cruise, trekking the Arctic Circle trail, whale watching and much more!

This is the world’s largest island and while headed by the Queen of Denmark till 2009 gained independence after 300 years of Danish rule.

Their official language is Greenlandic.

 

Isle of Man

These British Isles are not affiliated in any way to the United Kingdom or even the European Union. They have their own set of rules they abide to and their parliament is one of the oldest ruling bodies in the world called Tynwald. Legend has it that this was the place where Vikings arrived centuries ago.

The country itself is an example in its own in democracy as the first in the world to give women voting rights in parliamentary elections back in 1881.

The best things to do here include shark basking, cycling, and stargazing.
