What if you went to more "exotic" European countries like Armenia & Georgia? :)

Why not sub-Saharan Africa? It's the same distance, and cheaper too :)

Possibly. I don't really consider those countries European, just Caucasian. I might go for Armenia. Georgia, I'm not so sure but that might just be because of the conflicts there last year. That and the language is scary.

My general impression of Europe is that it's more of a place to live to than to visit.

I have zero interest in most of Africa. If I did go there, it'd probably be for career reasons (I want to work a development agency in the future).

I want to travel to Taiwan (Nope, not "another country" XD) when I can. People say that they easily get on weight once they go there because there are sooo many things to eat. *drools*
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

How about countries like Macedonia, Bulgaria or Slovenia then? More countries exist in Europe than just Germany or France!

Their passports would beg to differ.

Never said those were the only countries in Europe. But the Slavic countries aren't very interesting to me, except Poland and the Czech Republic. I want to travel to the Low Countries most of all.

Czech Republic is one of my favorite nations in Europe.

What makes the Czech republic so great? (I'm not being facetious, it's just that everyone says that)
