I'll go anywhere really, as long as I know I'll be safe and have at least some comfort.

Not to say I wouldn't leap at a trip to England--but all the same, it's pretty low on my list, unless the British pound loses value and it's suddenly a bargain...
Well thats a shame because we sure as hell would love to have tourists just like you!! Perhaps if you ever make it accross you could tell us all to our faces that we are all pasty faced with bad teeth, Im sure the locals will thank you for your honesty. I thought the term 'ugly American' was just a stereotype (a bit like the bad teeth, pasty faced thing) but obviously it isnt!!

Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, India, countries ending in "stan", Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Venezuela, China, Russia and the vast majority of the Middle East and Africa.

It would probably be a lot easier to list the countries I'd actually like to visit lol.

There are countries I wouldn't want to visit because of safety reasons and countries that I'm just not intrigued with to actually travel there. Many of the countries that aren't safe to me are places I'd love to see otherwise.

Countries/Regions I'm just not that interested in are:

Most of Central and South America
New Zealand
Southeast Asia
Spain
Portugal
Eastern Europe
Most of the Carribean


Countries/Regions I'd like to visit if they were safer:

India
Much of the Middle East (Including Turkey)
China
Mexico
Mid-Southern Africa

Oh, don't be so sensitive, it was a joke regarding common stereotypes. I could care less if you want to make jokes about fat-ass Americans, I'm not especially fond of Americans and I travel other places than US to get away from Americans. I just England find way too expensive for what you get, even compared to the rest of Europe, that's why it's lower on the list of countries to visit. If I had a free ticket to London, I'd be excited to go tomorrow.

If I would've made a comment that I had no interest in visiting the entirety of Africa or the Middle East or Latin America, no one would be shedding a tear...

Actually my girlfriend would love to travel to England, as she's a huge fan of your comedy and old people mystery shows. However I remind her that I'm still peeved about Oliver Cromwell pillaging the land of my forefathers, so I'll spend my hard-earned money on the other side of the channel...

Probably countries I'm not even thinking about right now. If I had to pick one, I'd say Kazakhstan, if it looks anything like in "Borat", lol. I also wouldn't care to visit Iraq, Iran, or Afghanistan.
