This will take a minute or two.

Where would you go, on a vacation to anywhere in the world, given five random choices? Here's how to play:

1. Go to
Custom Random Number Generator
and enter "1" in the lower limit box, and "251" in the upper limit box.
Click "Enter" 5 times, and write down the five random numbers that it chooses.

2. Then go to:
World Countries List, a list of Countries and Regions in the World :: Liste des Noms de Pays du Monde - Nations Online Project
and write down the five countries that correspond to your random numbers.

Now you have successfully chosen five countries at random.

3. Tell us which one you would go to, if you won a free trip to your choice of those five countries? Why? Would you want to travel there independently, or with a tour guide?

-----------

I just got Canada, Honduras, Lesotho, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, I've already been to all five of them, so I would choose Mozambique. I'd go on my own as an independent traveler, it's a big enough country that there is lots to see there.

fun idea!
i got 153, 207, 203,227, 76
wich means: France, Montserrat, Solomon Islands, South Sudan and Tonga.
Weird countries i got!! (and all high numbers)
with the exception of France, country that i always wanted to visit, i have to admit that i didnt know much about this countries so i clicked on them in the page you gave and got that Montserrat seems to be a Caribean Paradisiac destination, while Solomon Islands and Tonga also look Paradisiac turistic destinations located near Australia.
Except for Sudan, I would like to visit all this countries, though im more much about the historically rich countries than the paradisiac islands. Visiting France has been one of my long-time dreams since i was a kid. Actually, is the country i wanna go the most of all the countries in the world (funny i got it) so i definetely, if i had to chose among the countries i got, i would go to France.

43- Chad
57- Cyrpus
74 - Fiji
216- Sweeden
238- USA

Already being to 57 and 216 , and with 74 already being a huge holiday destination for aussies, I would have to settle for an independent tour of the Good old USA. I like my off the beaten track travel, Chad however might be a little bit too off the beaten track, anyone being their?

212- Sudan
169- Northern Mariana Islands
79- French Polynesia
141-Malta
84- Germany

Hahaha! Of these nations, I have been to Germany twice. If I had to pick of the rest of them, I would probably pick French Polynesia. I love me some islands! On the other hand, I'd also love to travel to Malta. (Just 2 numbers off from the Maldives, one of my dream destinations!

227 - Tonga
37 - Cambodia
156 - Myanmar
215 - Swaziland
12 - Aruba

I would go to Tonga I've been to both Cambodia (4 times) and Myanmar and although I'd go back to both again.
I pick Tonga and I would drop in on the Cook Islands Bora Bora whilst I was in that neck of the woods.....I've been wanting to go there since Fiji 2 years ago....
Swaziland - not on my list of must sees.... Aruba.... I guess it would be ok....

Definitely travel independently with husband. I HATE tours......and HATE all inclusive hotel resorts so thats where my indifference to Aruba comes from... it looks like an all inclusive tourist kinda place....

Venezuela, Serbia, Gabon, Ukraine, Belarus.
I'd definitely visit Serbia and spend an extended time at an Eastern Orthodox monastery.
