    Iraq lots of ancient sites and if you've seen the film three kings
    Argentina - a nation that intrigues me for some reason
    Austria - reasonably large euro country with unemployment at 4.4%, what are they doing right.

    Ecuador, but mainly the Galapagos Islands. I don't know much about mainland Ecuador. It's interesting how there's so many species that are endemic to the islands. I watched a video on Marine Iguanas once and it was really fascinating. I'm sure everyone knows the story of Lonesome George aswell?


    I was also quite fascinated in Afghanistan after reading The Kite Runner. Before reading the book I just had an image of a run down, deserted, war torn country. But the first couple of chapters paint a really nice image of the country, so I was interested to read about what the country was like before any invasions from the Soviets and Taliban

    America in the way one's morbidly interested in looking at a train wreck.
    on several objective indices the most successful nation in the world. It's just a silly and affected snobbery that cannot sensibly be born of anything but jealousy.

    But by all means sit in Weston Super-Mare snickering at those poor souls condemned to live in San Antonio, Boston, or Berkeley.

    Haha, I don't propose that Weston-super-Mare is politically superior, except perhaps in that it has not institutionalised the corporate bribery of politicians.

    In all seriousness, I'd love to go to Rome! It's all old and classy I'd feel like an official tourist, I'd have to get a badge to prove my worthy.

    Khaled Hosseini! (I have the book, but I stopped so haven't finished reading it yet. I watched the movie though.) Bet the story was based on the past quarter century.

    In relation to 'classy' I watched (and maybe been watching it too often) Audrey Hepburn's Roman Holiday. Rome in classic black and white!

    Sweden! The home of all great things: The Hives, IKEA... That's all I can think of right now, but they're great enough to be the basis of my love.

    And a thousand other movies recently released that features Rome too. For Art and Architecture I think Rome is a must!
