For me, the Mediterranean region - which would include southern France. It has the longest intact history, and I love Italian and Spanish architecture. The culture seems very vibrant and fun. On the other hand, Eastern Europe seems a bit dull and grey, and the countries just blend into one.

Britain for me (if that qualifies). They've got a fascinating history too. Especially coming from a country that's relatively young, I think it'd be cool to go and look at the other side of the pond and its deep past roots.

Even when I watch BBC documentaries and they refer to some location in the UK even in passing, I always think that it'd be neat to go there.

The only European countries I've never seen are Albania, Estonia, Ukraine and Moldova, so I guess I'd want to see those. Well, I've seen three of them, but haven't been in them, just looked across the border at them. Estonia is the only one I haven't seen, unless it's visible from the Stockholm-Helsinki ferry, but I don't think it is.

I've seen most of Europe but one thing I'd like to see but haven't is the midnight sun in the Arctic Circle. I've seen twilight in the middle of the night, but not 24-hour sun. I think the perfect place to visit anywhere in Europe or anywhere in the world for that matter is Italy. Beautiful and varied landscapes, warm summer weather, crazy/warm people, great food, sights worth seeing by the thousands, layer upon layer of history, all in a relatively small area.

There is a huge difference between "natural beauty" (spectacular views of geological formations and erosion) and "nature" (plants and animals to observe and study), unless geology is you field of interest. People who are driven to study "nature" are usually found in the ugliest of habitats.
