I think it's just the bad rap America always gets, but it is really a nice place...


A lot of Canadians are just plain ignorant, America is just as beautiful as Canada and with a lot more biodiversity.

Regarding landscape, architecture etc. What do you think are the most beautiful countries in the world? Obviously every country holds some kind of beauty so you may pick multiple ones.

It's a very tough choice but I'll go with U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Nepal.

Pictures are encouraged if you want to share any. Being American I'll kick it off with some pics of why I think the U.S. is one of the most beautiful countries.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.

Well, most people are ignorant about Iran's geography. They think its a desert and people ride on camels. It is actually amazing that it has vast variety of landscapes and yet only 1/10th size of USA in terms of landmass. There are mountains, oceans, lakes, underground caves etc. The seasonal weather temperature also ranges from -15 to 55 degree celsius.

Yeah, thats why people need to travel more. If you have money, you should explore other countries and you will be amazed by what you discover. There are some wonderful remote places in the world that people don't know much about.

excuses excuses. I have been fortunate enough to travel to a number of places while having a job, and bills to pay and blah blah blah. If you want it, you can make it happen.

Next on my list--Croatia, Malta, Sicily, probably next spring.
Then, I'd love to hit Peru, Argentina.

I've been lucky to have traveled to a few places while saddled with a mortgage, a job I can't leave for more than a couple weeks and now a wife and soon to be family but my point is it certainly doesn't make it easy. Especially during tough economic times.

Backpacking Europe for two months is for the young and responsibility free. It's near impossible to do with the above without that other thing...money. You need one or the other IMO to do any regular, longer and variety of traveling.

Lol

its all about choices.

If you choose to saddle yourself with a mortgage under the guise of responsibilities that is a choice.

Much like if you choose to be irresponsible and live in hostels for you life.
