The Transvaal, Algiers, Morocco and Uruguay are all types of countries that really appeal to you.
You like to be in a country where you need to go on a quest to find something different or hidden.
You would also probably like to go to Transylvania, Romania, or countries which have mystery and legend attached to them - even a little bit of fear.
New Orleans, Washington DC and Newfoundland are all places you should experience.
Basic holiday resorts are okay for you, but you definitely prefer to get away from the norm.
