I think a list of cities where you have visited and stayed for more than 2 days might be more interesting. It would give a better idea of what you saw and came to know about the country. It's not very meaningful, for example, when someone says they've been to Indonesia when they've only been on holiday in Bali.

Have lived in Romania (my home country), Greece for three months (Mount Athos and Thessaloniki) and France (Paris and its surroundings)

Have made meaningful trips to:

Italy (Rome twice)
Hungary (Budapest)
Bulgaria (Balchik, Nessebar, Veliko Tunovo, Plovdiv)
Switzerland (Geneva)
Belgium (Brussels, Bruges)
Spain (Barcelona, Girona)
UK (London, Edinburgh, Glasgow)
Netherlands (Amsterdam)
France ( Marseille, Toulon and Provence; Strasbourg; Normandy; Lyon; Amiens)

Looking forward to visit:

as much of Italy as possible
Portugal (road tripping)
Germany (Berlin, the Rhineland)
East Coast USA and Canada (NY, Boston Chicago, Montreal, Quebec, if possible more)
Japan (more of a long term project)
North Africa, when the troubles become a thing of the past
Brazil and Argentina

Think it's feasible.

I would really love to visit Iceland. For some reason, it looks kinda chill there (I mean relaxed, I know it's pretty cold out there) and endless. Like the roads never end
Maybe I have a completely wrong impression of it, don't know...
I also want to check some life performances there - Olafur Arnalds for example. He's just bloody brilliant and I literally melt to his music.

From
UK

Visited (tourist resorts and stopovers only)
Spain
Egypt
Greece
U.A.E.
Belgium
Netherlands

Visited more widely
Ireland
France
Italy
Germany
Canada
USA
India

Would like to visit
Brazil (to see Rio and Sao Paulo)
Romania (or any part of the more traditional and scenic parts of Eastern Europe with good medieval ruins and mountains and decent wildlife, but especially Romania because it is more 'exotic' than the Slavic nations)
Norway (to see the fjords)
Finland (to see the scenery)
An Arab country (to see the Arabic lifestyle, like India but less hectic and overpopulated, or that's how I imagine it. Also I like the scenery, desert and Islamic architecture)
Bangladesh (to see the village where my grandfather lived)

Try Morocco, Marrakech.
Beautiful city with Islamic architecture, friendly people, at the edge of the desert and not to expensive. Easy to reach from the UK.
