Ireland,of course ;D

Mine to DG  :D  We are on a U2 forum!  Really though, I adored the Emerald Isle way before I adored U2  ;)

I love all the countries on this list and hope to visit the ones there that I have not gotten to yet. I love to travel more than anything!

Now why would I want to go to Ireland, I wonder? ;)

Of course only because you wanna see a lot of green countryside and a lot of bad weather. Right?   ;)

Yeah. That's funny because every European country I've been to, I've ridden my bike through.... And I'm thinking... for Ireland, maybe I should find a new plan? ;) (Being that I hate riding in the rain.)

I havent been to them all yet so how do I pick??

I picked Italy because it was the best of the following countries, which are the only ones I've been to thus far in my 35 years:

- US (where I live...)
- Canada
- Mexico
- Germany
- Italy
- Netherlands (just Amsterdam, though, so I'm not sure that's representative of the whole country, though I did love Amsterdam)


I loved Germany, though, too.

My next trip is either going to be: Greece, Australia, UK and Ireland.

Now why would I want to go to Ireland, I wonder? ;)

You should go to Ireland, lets say, late August/September next year.. :)

Is there a special reason why I'd want to go then...? ;)

I don't have a favourite country. No country is inherently superior to any other- and I wouldn't vote for mine even if I could. Every country on Earth has STAGGERINGLY large flaws and problems which need transformational, fundamental reform. And 99% of them also have lots of really good points. Anyone who believes that one nation is by nature "superior" to others needs their head seriously examined. There's a point where nationalism and patriotism overwhelms common sense and that's about it.


My favourite to *visit* is probably the USA, but I like an awful lot of countries for an awful lot of reasons. :)

EDIT: Of course, that would all be relevant if it was "What is the best country?" but isn't particularly relevant to "What is your favourite", in retrospect. Apologies for pretension. XD Umm... probably the USA but I haven't voted them because I'm not sure!

I picked Ireland because that's where my favorite band is from. Big shock, I know.

I live in the US and it is definitely not my favorite country. We're too uptight here. I could say more, but I'll be nice. No, I dont want to be ejected out of the country. We have a lot of work to do to make us my favorite country, though.
