Well, if you want really exotic excitement to liven up your boring life, may I suggest you walk the streets of Islamabad wearing a miniskirt & halter top while carrying a bottle of Jack Daniels?

I absolutely loved both. Mongolia I think is one of the most fascinating countries IMO.

In Mongolia you can thunder across the steppe on a hardy pony of a proud lineage and hunt goats with your trusty eagle. That is one of the most exciting things I can imagine. More exciting than going to another twæt club to hear another twæt song by another twæt artist while drinking some kind of Red Bull vodka drink.

Night life, Street life, all overrated. People who gush about how exciting the cities are in South America, Central/Eastern Europe, and the Mediterranean, asf. get boring really fast. (I'm not saying such places have nothing to recommend them, just that they are so overrated and played out, banal, overdone...)

i don't think places are boring but the traveler himself/herself is.....
i've been to many of the countries on your "boring list" but have always enjoyed myself.

sometimes you need to "create" the interesting fun things that work for the particular place you are in.....you don't expect "interesting things" to just happen for you.

and if you've a fixed mindset of the types of things that are interesting....then you probably should just stick with those places that you find interesting and not try to venture anywhere else. but i suppose eventually you'd find those same places boring too...hahha

I became bored in every country I lived after a while. Partly because I am used to living in large American cities with alot of social electricity. I find Europeans very nice but too laid back for my taste.

Rome Italy and Barcelona Spain both started feeling lonely and unimpressive after 2 weeks, but that is anywhere compared to America. No, not because America is flawless, but after getting used to the abnoxious and entertaining nature of large city social scenes it is hard to replace for YOUNGER Americans.

The worst city/country:

Budapest, Hungary...so dreary and I will not go into details because they are just mean natured to say.
