You make me really want to visit Libya, Suade!
I come from a tiny, very southern country: New Zealand. Although there's much to see, my favourite place is the Franz Josef Glacier, in the south of the country.
You can see Franz Josef Glacier, and I promise it will change the way you look at the world. Our last ice age lasted from 110,000 years ago to 12,000 years ago, and on the Franz Joseph Glacier you can see what the world looked like back then. I'll never forget walking on there for the first time. Everything is white and blue, ice and nothing else, as far as you can see. No life, just pure cold ice!
It truly feels like you're on another planet. And then you walk away and get to spend time with the friendly New Zealand people and you instantly feel warmer.
Although they are not necessarily the places I would recommend for a visit, the two historic places in the United States that I feel proudest of are:
a) The Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington, DC, where you can see the actual original copies of the United States Constitution and the United States Declaration of Independence;
b) Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the Declaration of Independence was drafted and the Constitution was signed.
