The Middle East and Asia. I'm just too picky about what I eat, I couldn't survive across that whole continent.


In the US, Las Vegas.


In the UK, Stonehenge.

Most countries in the ME are not dangerous. Thatís a very American misconception. UAE is safer than many places in America.

Probably wonít go to every state in the country unless for work. Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, North Dakota are low on list.

I wouldnít go to the tropical South Pacific islands. Not remarkably better than my Carribean favorites to justify the flight. At that point Iíd rather do something more cultural like Japan, Thailand, or Vietnam.
The South Pacific is much more beautiful than the Caribbean islands. Nothing in the Caribbean can compare to the beauty of Tahiti. I wouldn't go every year but you should see it once in your lifetime.

Boredom. Id always think the Swiss were watching me to make sure I do everything right, or too caught up in their own perfection to care. And Im a low budget traveler, and it would bust my budget/

Don't get me wrong I wasn't a big fan of Israel's value as a tourist destination but Israel gets a ton of tourists, 2-3 getting killed per year by wackos puts odds at quite favorable.
I think you got it backwards, the OP was saying he/she wouldn't want to visit anywhere in the Middle East except Israel, because it is too dangerous. I read it as he/she will make an exception for Israel as it is not as dangerous.

Why would you avoid going back to Switzerland?

I can't believe people are eliminating entire diverse continents with different cultures, foods, and things to see.
