Agree That's why one of my picks was Chile. Despite being long( north to south) you don't need to drive that much to see total different sceneries. Same with Peru.

I have a fascination for Italy, Namibia and Australia. I also love the US, Mexico and the main South American countries.

I think this is a good point; sort of a "wow/sq mile" factor.
I agree with the above, and others', inclusion of NZ: it's the size of Colorado yet has hundreds of miles of pristine, near-deserted beaches; active volcanoes; rain forests, glaciers, mountains, mountainous island (Cook Straits), etc. etc. A remarkable, maybe unmatched, variety of landscapes for such a relatively small area.
