Short of heading into an active war zone or burning epidemic, I can honestly say I can't think of a place I wouldn't go. Especially if someone else is footing the bill.

Of course there are preferences, but if I had the opportunity to go, I would go simply for the opportunity.

Aruba. I don't appreciate the cavalier and incompetent way they handled the Natalie Holloway murder. To be honest, the place doesn't have any appeal to me anyway.Nothing but gambling and beaches.

There's likely a few places in the UK and Emirates that would have problems with that statement...

What is that that you don't want to see?

Ancient culture, modern cities, beaches, mountains, jungles, wildlife, shopping...etc. etc. etc....

Or is it just a racial thing again?

The over-politicization of your post is stifling too. I am as right-wing as anybody here, but I love Europe. Classical music, old buildings, and great traditions are not left or right. European politics will someday change, and Hitler is gone forever.

Since you put it that way. I refuse to visit Spain, because of the National Bloodsport. It is my own personal boycott.

Although a good tour of Italy is a must. For arts sake. The rest of the world absolutely no interest.
Some of it been there done that. After three days could not wait to get home.

I like my civilized creature comforts. Third world toilets have no interest for me. And it is not about the people it is about the lack of my creature comforts.

But reverse racist who are by and large mental midgets, can only think of one denominator of factors, and attack on the basis of people not fawning over non-white third world toilets. Ignore them. Reverse racist are a bore.
