I've only been to 2 countries my whole life, and they are both great. The best cities I've been to are Portland, OR, Vancouver, BC, Kansas City, MO. The worst city I've ever been to is Spokane Washington. What other Americans tell me about Paris, Spokane is about the same. Dirty, smelly, rude people and bad drivers. AN-225: If you are just driving through Wyoming, it's a beautiful state. But yes, the living there is scary for some  Big grin

LOT767300ER: You obviously haven't put a foot in some of africa's country. I went to Tunisia 5 times and this place is beautiful, especially D'jerba island. Also go to the shores in Mauritania where crystal blue seas full of dolphins and white sand will wait for you. When you'll go there you'll fall in love with it!

Oh and Monaco is not a country but a principality.

My favorite countries:

Canada
Australia
Switzerland
Belgium
USA (esp. the west and east coast and Alaska too)
Tunisia
