Very tough question. My favourite continent is Antarctica. My favourite countries are Northern Ireland, Taiwan, China, Uruguay, Bolivia and Iran. My favourite cities are London, Belfast, Montevideo, Chongqing and Sydney. The reasons just because I have had so many happy times in those places!

Always great to see Jonny featured. I've followed his blog for a while now and highly recommend him. He really does go off the beaten track and discovers interesting places that you've never heard of. Follow him and you never know what you might learn.
