Poland, my birth country, I've got a big sentiment for it, although it isn't perfect.

I don't want to live there now, as I have my life here, but everytime I land in WAW, I almost shread a tear. It's so nice.

Oh yeah, and I love to visit my older brother, too  Wink

I thought the idea of this thread was to name European countries OTHER than your own, like the Eurovision Song Contest.

For me it would be probably be all of the Med ones, if I could stick the heat in summer.

Surprisingly, France. That country is absolutely beautiful and when the people aren't being a bunch of asstraps, they are quite nice as well. Stay out of Paris and you'll know what I mean.

Apart of my own country Slovenia, i will go for sure with Italy.

I like Germany, nothing to say, but the artistic heritage of Italy is the number one in the world for sure.

Same for the landscape, from the Alps to the rivers, hills, lakes and the islands and the Mediterranean. Tuscany is my favourite.

What to say about food?  Smile

Then for who loves shopping it's a heaven. But unfortunately it's an expensive country.
