Costa Rica, Beautiful scenery, good weather, and people in certain areas live long useful lives.
I wouldn't mind seeing the whole world but would not like to do it as my father did. He spent years as the belly gunner in a B 29 and was stationed in Africa, India, South America, and China. I know also that he was in England, New Zealand and Australia, but not sure why.
Hey earnest, what's happenin? I agree Australia is a great country. At least from what I have read and heard. I desperately want to come and visit, but I'm just working to hard to get away. I would like to solve the mystery of whatever happened to blondepoet though. Perhaps she was abducted by a bunch of bananas, who knows.
Come over Home Girl, and I will show you around London! Apart from the beauties of the UK, which are many and varied for such a small country, I would have to say that my favourite country is Australia.
Maybe because it is the land of my birth, but I just love the wide empty spaces, the beaches, sunshine and animals.
I wanted to go to England since 12 years old. How the heck I ended up in Canada? Too late now. I am a Canadian citizen, for better or for worse, you know. When I see images of old cities of England I just melt like an ice cream on a hot Canadian day...
My favorite country would be the United States. The country has many places to explore and depending what type of weather you like you can go to that specific state. For example if you like tropical type weather then you can go to Florida. If you need to be in the mountains you can go the Appalacian Mountain Range or to the Rockies. If you like arrid,dry, and desert lanscdape we have the desert in California. I am not saying that the other countries don't have their own qualities because each of them do present character and culture.
My own country (UK) aside, I would have to go for a particular region in a country, that being Bavaria in the extreme South of Germany. I am not quite so enthusiastic about the North of Germany, though I do enjoy visiting. It is incredibly clean and safe, the people are really friendly, the food is fabulous - and of course, the bier...
Have lived and worked in many countries but, for overall quality, the island of Madeira beats them all. Spectacular scenery and temperate climate in a sub-tropical position, no snakes or scorpions (my primal fear), no crime, friendly and happy people. Living here is like a taste of paradise.
