Visit a country for every letter of the alphabet

This is part of my 40 Before 40 Challenge.

This is travelling with a twist and was inspired by one of the tutors on my CELTA course. Her English teaching had taken all over the globe, so she had completed this apart from (I think) the letter Q.

So in order for me to complete this challenge, these are the remaining letters and the available countries for me to tick off:

J – Japan, Jamaica, Jordan
K – Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kiribati, Kosovo, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan
O – Oman
Q – Qatar
R – Republic of Congo, Romania, Russia, Rwanda
Y – Yemen
Z – Zambia, Zimbabwe

So it looks like trips around the Middle East and Africa are on the cards, who’s joining me?

W and X – I still haven’t decided how best to tick these two off. I think Wales is probably as close as I can get for W, whereas the best I can do for X is probably a city (most likely Xalapa in Mexico). Alternatives are the West Indies and Hong Kong (whose Mandarin name is written Xianggang).
