Asia. Bigger continent by far, bigger population by far, plenty of different civilizations.
But you can't visit Asia, you can only visit some of its regions, it's way too big. Europe is a bit more than 10m km˛.. while China alone is 9.5m km˛ and Asia is 44.5m km˛ ! Europe has imo the most dense cultural diversity, but Asia as a whole is of course more diverse.
Hard to compare those two.

Europe is the only continent that matters to me. I find all the others interesting, but a lifetime is too short to even cover half of Europe, so screw them.

I was going to say that I think Europe is more interesting because the history is more appealing to me. But then I thought that culture and history can't really be the same thing. BUT then I started doubting myself again when I realized they are both equally in a cause and effect relationship. So now I don't even really know what to say.

Asia is definitely (from a face-value perspective) 'culturally' more interesting, but I think I prefer Europe in pretty much every other lifestyle and historical regard. Except food.

European food is defiantly better than Asian food. Rum, vodka, and cheese burger and French fries are better than stuff like Chineese rice and sushi(really raw fish).

This is so difficult. I love European art/culture/history etc and I've been about 12 times. Asia, so vast and it is calling me to visit since I haven't yet. Heck even my grandmother has been to several Asian countries and loved it.
So my answer is Asia, because the idea of going there excites me more than returning to Europe.

Europe. European monarchies interest me more than Asian monarchies.
European palaces and castles and architecture interest me more than Asian palaces and architecture.
