That would include Florida, eastern Ontario, and a lot of Australia.
Eastern Ontario, humid? Really? It can't be any worse than Georgia or the Carolinas in summer.

I don't do any place that has no running water. This includes but is not limited to showers, toilets and sinks. So that leaves out a large portion of 3rd world countries as well as some areas in the Blue Ridge Mts. and Arkansas. I also have no interest in Asia or South America as a whole. North America is ok. Well the US and Canada anyway. I don't care for places that have Spanish as a primary language except for Spain. Though I think they speak more portugease (sp) there than Spanish. I do like Europe and Australia. Mostly. The outback is a bit sketchy. My idea of roughing it is flying coach, having a taxi driver take a short cut through the hood on the way to the Ritz or shopping someplace that doesn't take Amex.

I left out Africa. Definitely off my list.
well, that left you with Canamerica, West Europe and Australia.
Essentially you are only interested in seeing rich and white countries.

I am the opposite - I only travel to other continents (including S America).
Anywhere in Canada, US, Mexico and the entire Caribbean is uninteresting to me.

Wow, I thought there were a lot of different races, ethnicities and income levels in those places. Who knew. Besides, except for the US they are all filled with foreigners.

Just because they have a diverse population doesn't mean they aren't predominantly white, and affluent. Which they are.

Don't tell me for an instant you want to compare Germany with Ethiopia or Australia with Indonesia and say they're equivalent.

It's ok. You can be at peace with your milquetoast choices, but you don't really have grounds to be offended when someone points it out.
