Uh ... Not really .... I would think many of the first world countries in Europe are different from what we are used to here in the US in terms of culture, architecture, cuisine and language ...

France. Portugal. Australia. Wales. Greece. Denmark. Italy, though I hear the north can be nice. Czech Republic and Slovakia, if they count. Hungary.

All of them, except Japan and South Korea.

Having said that ive already being all over europe, and have lived in Both England and Germany, I just have no desire to go back.

The USA and Canada have never really being on my Travel Radar, North America is the only populated continent ive never being to.

I don't know what you'd consider UAE, maybe second world.. but I have no interest in it. Not a very high interest in France, New Zealand or Australia either. The rest I would like to see, I usually lean towards 3rd world, but I think all countries have something you can learn.

I'd pick Italy over Venezuela any day.

There are lots of great things to see and do here in the US but considering that you are in Brisbane, I can understand you not wanting to do the long flight I plan one day to visit Australia but the long flight is what's holding me back as I dunno how I can manage to keep sane on a 14+ hour flight

There's nowhere I am not interested in, speaking broadly. Saying that everything is the same is a really limited viewpoint. The USA alone is vastly different from region to region (and many urban dwellers will agree that it can vary from block to block).

Exactly ... When I have traveled across country, I often feel a sense of culture shock within my own borders as each region as vastly different in terms of architecture, values/philosophy and even cuisine. Although I live within the same country as someone from rural Tennessee, I might find very few things in common because our lifestyles are vastly different but I am open to learning more about them and what makes them tick.

The same applies to other 1st World countries ... Canada may have a few things in common with the US but there are enough differences to motivate me to travel to Toronto in a few short weeks to learn more about our northern neighbors. Once I decide to brave traveling across the Ocean, I want to learn more about the different European countries as my ancestors are from there. Since I'm adopted by a non-European family, I know very little about Europe and the various countries that make up that continent. Europe to me is fascinating because in such relatively small space, you have tons of vastly different cultures, languages, food , architecture, belief systems, etc ... The most "similar" European nation to the US would probably be the UK. Yet, if I were to travel there, I can bet you that I'd feel a strong sense of culture shock ... Even though the US and UK both speak English; the pronunciation, phrases and slang differs a lot!

When it comes to traveling, we all have her preferences but I would not be quick to assume that all 1st world nations are exactly the same ... because they are not.
