Georgia is famous for its peach, as there are more than 40 varieties of fresh Georgia peaches are available from mid-May through August. Georgia is an underrated country to visit in the world. It has been ranked at number 68 in the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index in 2019, but Georgia is growing its tourism industry significantly wherein 2017 was ranked at number 70. It is one of the reasons why Georgians do believe that ‘a guest is sent from God’, therefore they try to welcome guests into their homes as they would to any relative, family member or friend.

MEXICO! What's the first thing that comes to your mind when saying Mexico? For me, it is the Mexican hat (Sombrero). Mexicans are good at making cocktails, so almost all of them are alcohol lovers. They have a unique culture called Dia de los Muertos where they celebrate the dead 😳. If you are a challenger, you should try out the world's longest zipline in the Copper Canyon Adventure Park (Parque de Aventuras) near Divisadero.
