If you have a chance, go visit New Zealand!
We went in 2003 (right after the World Cup, Rugby that is), and had a fantastic time!
New Zealand is only 1200 Km long, but each 50 km you travel the scenery changes completely.
There are tropical beaches, fjords, wine country, lots of wild animals and the nicest people in the world.
We only visited for 4 weeks, but we sure want to go back!

Personally, I greatly enjoyed visiting England, especially London. I do like cold and or rainy, but more than that, Lots of museums, and lots of other places to go see.

The people are beautiful and friendly. The architecture is great. The city is fantastic with loads of sightseeing stuff but also great shopping, the centre isn't too big either. Transport is good, houses are excellent.

I loved Copenhagen when I was there for 10 days and it peaked my interest to see Denmark's cousins - Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Finland.

Of course France is a wonderful country.
But as I'm living there I think that it is fair enough to choose another country.
Italy is a very nice country for most things:
Food, wine, weather, people, chicks, some cars, ..

A country filled with friendly folks, fast trains, and restaurants that emphasize meal quality over quantity. Great mountain roads for bicycling up and speeding back down again, too.

How about Scotland and a town like Edinburgh with it's spectacular Old Towne Center and a bunch of castles and wonderful scenic vistas. And if you are a golfer, the Old Course at ST.Andrews. We went there last year. It was a memorable trip.

And if you are looking for a place in the USA perhaps the Grand Canyon. If you have never seen it in person it is hard to describe and harder to give it justice. One has to go there in order to fully appreciate what it's like.

I always enjoy my visits to England. London may be my wife's favorite place on Earth, and it has to be near the top of my list as well. So much history, so many things to do and see, and on top of that a whole lot of great pubs that serve many varieties of wonderful ales. Darn it, now I want to go back again!

The following is the last two paragraph's from Paul Theroux's article in the Smithsonian, Taking the Great American Roadtrip:

Quote:
In my life, I had sought out other parts of the world - Patagonia, Assam, the Yangtze; I had not realized that the dramatic desert I had imagined Patagonia to be was visible on my way from Sedona to Santa Fe, that the rolling hills of West Virginia were reminiscent of Assam and that my sight of the Mississippi recalled other great rivers. I'm glad I saw the rest of the world before I drove across America. I have traveled so often in other countries and am so accustomed to other landscapes, I sometimes felt on my trip that I was seeing America, coast to coast, with the eyes of a foreigner, feeling overwhelmed, humbled and grateful.

A trip abroad, any trip, ends like a movie - the curtain drops and then you're home, shut off. But this was different from any trip I'd ever taken. In the 3,380 miles I'd driven, in all that wonder, there wasn't a moment when I felt I didn't belong; not a day when I didn't rejoice in the knowledge that I was part of this beauty; not a moment of alienation or danger, no roadblocks, no sign of officialdom, never a second of feeling I was somewhere distant - but always the reassurance that I was home, where I belonged, in the most beautiful country I'd ever seen.


(I first saw this excerpt in the New York Times)

I'll make a plug for the Great White North. Largest mall in the world with all sorts of fun things there. I have family/family roots in southern Alberta where the prairie is beautiful (there's even a buffalo jump nearby) and go see the Hutterites. Nicest people and the tastiest clover honey!

Or if you want real beauty you can skip over to Banff National Park or on over to Vancouver and/or Victoria with its gardens and whatnot.

Belgium rules. You've got fries, chocolate, beer, art, nice people, night life, medieval cathedrals and castles, you can bicycle places, good train system, beer, and did I mention beer? I've mostly visited Flanders. Wallonia is kind of quiet and sleepy, but also beautiful. Go to Antwerp, it is a terrific city.

I've only travelled to a few countries in South America, but my favorite part of the continent is perhaps the southern tip. Especially the Patagonia, both Chilean and Argentinian. I loved Bariloche, and it's crystaline Nahuel-Huapi lake, and it's great chocolate. I loved Valdivia (in Chile), with it's great college-town feel and it's even greater beer.

Now, I would be wasting an opportunity here if I didn't promote my own country: Colombia. You get great restaurants, museums and overall night life in Bogota, and you can get certainly exotic eyesights in several other cities (and even in eco-tourism hikes and such). With such a varied amount of climates, you simply can't go wrong with Colombia.
