Portugal, which shares an oceanic border with Spain on the Iberian Peninsula, has long been known for its fantastic maritime culture. The Iberian nation bears the traces of numerous seafaring cultures, including the Celts, Romans, Moors, and others, as well as the rise and fall of numerous ancient civilizations.

To put it mildly, South Africa is culturally rich, with many indigenous tribes (there are 11 official languages) and a strong European influence owing to the colonization by the British in the 1800s and the Dutch East India Company’s long-term settlement in the 1600s.
Peru is an epicenter of sorts in South America for its diverse and ancient cultures, wild and varied landscapes, and its fusion of outstanding cuisine.
