    Cuba
    Iceland
    Korea (north and south)
    And I stumbled upon this!

    Iceland: (www.independent.co.uk)

    Iceland has the greatest equality between men and women, taking into account politics, education, employment and health indicators. The UK comes in at 16th place, down one since 2010. The worst is Yemen, and the most dangerous is Afghanistan.

    So happy I'm learning.

    France and Canada are two countries that fascinate me the most. Would love to visit either of them some day.

    They should invent a condition where it's like you're homesick but it's a country you've actually never been in... XD that's what I'm feeling right now ;__; I have pictures of Kyoto and Tokyo printed on my wardrobe to keep me motivated at times (although right now they're covered by biology revision)

    A few months ago I started James Heisig's Remembering the Kanji books to memorise the kanji symbols. I'll finish it sooner or later. Maybe pictures of Kyoto would help me get on with it..

    AHHHH kanjis... I loved learning them routinely every week, I have some book on basic 200 which helps you remember them symbolically it helps... But I think I must've forgotten most by now since I haven't had time I feel terrible... I'm hoping I can take it up once again when I go to uni

    Definitely look up Heisig's RTK, they use a mnemonic system to relieve the dependency on rote memorisation. I've memorised about 200 or so, then I got distracted and have been learning Esperanto. Definitely the best kanji method though.

    ^ This, obviously since its my field of study.

    I find countries that exist outside viral ideas like Islam/Christianity/Communism interesting. So India would be second. Not that that means I'd particularly like to visit until they cut out the corruption and develop. Countries I'd like to visit would be ones with barrier reefs and things like that which are interesting in a totally different way.
