Lol... What a joke...

I have never used the N-word or expressed any kind of homophobia. Ever.

The only time I have said something bad about Southern European countries are when someone from Southern Europe has hit us with "you northerners have no culture" kind of sillyness.

Belgium and Holland have some beautiful cities but they are very few because they are very small countries .
It is the same with Switzerland and Austria,Hungary ,Slovenia ,Croatia etc etc

But the wonderful thing about Italy and Spain is that they do not advance 20 km or less without tripping
with one or more wonders in each village ,Castles ,Monasteries or Cathedrals ,or Churches that to be full of artistics treasures,.

Recall that Spain has 4200 castles medieval ,950 monasteries, and also 88 Great Cathedrals -

Italy has similar figures although many less castles because Spain was at war against muslims 800 years and by this the Center of Spain is called CASTILLA land of Castles.-

But also, they are of so many Centuries of History and invasions of peoples of cultures so different that the spanish and italian cities are very different also.-

There is so things beautiful that the tourists,they can repeat visits constantly finding new things wonderful in these towns .

Of Natural beauties in Italy and Spain . I ll talk another day .-

Yep, and add France too. Those three are unbeteable IMO. Unfortunately Germany, who could have been in that group too, was decimated by the recent wars and consequent territorial fragmentation.

A trip to a magnificent city is like a banquet that has all kinds of dishes and exquisite wines and nothing is missing-.

This is equivalent to have Sea or lakes and beautiful mountains ,city also with art, gastronomy and exquisite music a lively and euphoric atmosphere and warm weather in some times and surroundings also very beautiful.

In Spain and Italy I believe that there are many cities that in large part have all these things and in the world there are very few.-

In Italy for example the beautiful and rich Turin with the Alps to the side and its very close lakes,and Great architecture and gastronomy and exquisite cake shop.-

Cities as Trento and Balzano in Dolomites,some of the most the beautiful mountains that can be
seen in the World, are very rich cities ,with much art ,lakes and next borders with other countries and Trieste a very rich city next Sea, border to 3 countries with beautiful architecture.Emperor Franz Joseph lived there when Trieste depend on the Austrian Empire.

In spain also there are many cities in the north of Spain in the Picos Of Europe the mountains closest to the Sea that exist and that are like the beautiful Tyrolean valleys but glued to the Sea with hundreds
of semi-deserted beaches and good temperature as It reminded me, a tiroles married with a spanish
from that area ,Example Oviedo Santander etc etc,

But the most city complete I Know is Granada with Sierra Nevada at the bottom of the Alhambra and a few km the Mediterranean Sea where you can bathe and eskiar in the day and enjoy a unique sunset
from a Carmen (residence on a hill where runs the water that evaporates with the heat cooling at atmosphere between aroma exciting ,of the flowers (It is cold in winter nothing is perfect)

Romanticism is defined as the cult of feeling that moves the most fibers sensitives
of the soul producing an indescribable pleasure as the love.-

Italy and Spain are the 2 most romantic countries in the World where it is easier
to experience that phenomenon unless you have a sensitivity of wood .-

I recommend you a trip through Italy and Spain by strolling during the day
in different cities and eating in selected places and enjoying some summer evenings outdoors in wonderful music festivals that always is it so in places beautiful as the Pesaro
city of Rosini ,The of 2 Worlds in Spoleto,the one of Ravello,The Lucca Festivals of Puchini etc etc etc,.

In Spain in the summer in any small town go to the Castle or the Cathedral it is almost sure to enjoy the best music or also other days feel sunset on a terrace
best over the Sea with a sherry and exquisite fish and almost sure to meet people interesting.

The sumum would be in Granada in a Carmen or Similar with views to the Alhambra where by the way there is a exceptional Festivals of Classical Music in June in the Courtyard of the Palace of emperor Carlos V in the Alhambra.-

A trip like in this is a experience as a advance of the Paradise.

Unless that you travel as a suitcase and with the speed of a business trip as do many tourists and spoil a trip that could be wonderful through Spain and Italy and a wonderful memory forever-.

Italy as a whole is wonderful, taking account natural scenaries is one of the most beautiful countries of the world. But talking about cities nothing compares to Spain.

The country is replete of towns that are true jewels that we had never heard about before.
Lots of countries have many beautiful cities, including Brazil. But Spain in urbanization is out of this world.
