Are there any "Unsafe" countries or regions (Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, most of Africa, North Korea, Venezuela, Etc.) you'd like to visit if they were safe to travel to and you were able to finance a trip?

I always wanted to go to Iran. My dad raved about Egypt, Syria and Turkey (he went in the mid 90s) I'd go to those places. Plus Pakistan and Israel. Both my parents raved about Israel

*IF* they were safe to travel to, nearly all. I love travel. There is no better teacher.

Mexico is considered unsafe. More American travelers die there than anywhere else abroad.
And I'd love to go to an all-inclusive resort 🌴🍹

I would kill to go to Israel or Syria if there wasn’t so much violence.

Yes, many. I have always wanted to visit Somalia but people would make fun of me if I said so. Also Afghanistan as well. I particularly have always wanted to visit Syria, especially before it got bad.

While parts of it clearly are, I don’t think *most* of Africa is unsafe. A lot of people live there and seem to be doing just fine. In fact, at least some of it is identified as being safer than the US. If safety was a priority, we'd all move away from the US, and would never look back. In any case, of the countries identified as being more "unsafe" than the US, only the Philippines and Ukraine are places I would have any interest in visiting anyway, and I would not hesitate to travel to either of those today.

I meant most African countries are considered unsafe, at least for your average American tourist.

Israel is pretty safe all things considered. West Bank and Gaza are not.

Sure. I want to go to most countries, but a lot are off of the list because they would not be safe for me, and I don't want to put myself in a position which is directly unsafe for me.

I visited Afghanistan for 9 months in 2009 all expenses paid.

Not many, mostly interacted with men only.
