Spin the dial, think outside the box, the world is your oyster.
India, the Palace on Wheels and the  Elephanta Caves to start.,  The  mysteries of this land of contrasts.  The sights and smells are so symbolic.  Tour the soaring temples, experience the Taj Mahal at sunset and sunrise. Revel in the  luxurious atmosphere of hotels in the heartland of northern India while visiting a town where weaving is still a living art.  
Still in Egypt and here at Karnak showing off the largest hall of any temple. This complex is a vast mix of temples, chapels, pylons and other buildings some decaying, near Luxor.

Scotland is in the top 1/3rd of the island of Great Britain. Make no mistake, never call a Scot an Englishman or call him Scotch (That is the drink).  Being the daughter of a Scot that was one of the first rules I learned, certainly preceding turning off the lights when you left a room. 
The countryside is  beautiful and so diverse and the cities fantastic.  The Loch Ness monster was the basis for many a children's book sent to us (scary - yes),  Arthur's seat for history and Glasgow's Art Deco for pure style and and on the endearing side  Greyfriars Bobby (you must know the story before visiting Edinburgh),.  So much more to see on this road less traveled.  Around each corner there is always something special. 
Iceland, the hottest destination for 2021.  They have kept the virus levels low and with a smaller isolated population have been able to exercise caution without lockdowns.  Husavik, popular for whale watching and the landmark wooden church Husavikurkirkja built in 1907 is also a typical fishing village.  Iceland is a wonderful destination offering circumnavigation cruises, touring with a group by bus or driving. 
Absolutely a necessary stop on the road a bit more traveled.   
As you start to plan here are a few suggestions:
How will you divide your time between cities and country 
how many hours a day do you want to drive  and for that what kind of a car? manual or automatic?  medium or small
(not recommended for more than 2 persons).  
Do you want to stop for a bigger meal at noon?   just a few ideas to consider when on the road less traveled.
