Europe, but I have a significant but partial European ancestry and that increases the attachment/curiosity to a certain extent.

I also find Asia interesting, but Europe is a notch more interesting in my opinion. I'm talking about Western and Mediterranean Europe, because I have zero interest in Eastern Europe and in Scandinavian countries.

Asia has much more plurality of cultures. Indeed, I prefer to travel to Europe. If I travel to India, China or some muslim country I would have fear of not knowing the social rules and being impolite.

same with me. I'm interested in Asia, but not so into it that I want to live there permanently. I only feel emotional connections to the UK (due to my wife), Germany, and Spain but Spain above all else

Europe.

I am not attracted on asia at all. Asia is grotesque and hideous to me. Pretty cover, not so pretty when looking inside. And in the end I am only interested of inside. Also asian philosophies / way to think is strange for me.

But most important thing is that asians in their lands are happy. None my business.

Default Africa

Because most people barely mention Sub-Saharan Africa, but we get all kinds stuff on Asia and Europe. I'm really getting tired of hearing about Europe. The fact that Africa made it through Slavery, Islamic Crusades, Brutal Colonialist, genocide and still some how didn't lose all of its culture/population like the Native Americans. Makes them very interesting, plus the fact they rapidly rising economies.

You can start you own thread. Some of us do love hearing about Europe.
