    As long as the trip includes all expenses, sure.

    I doubt I could afford to stay there if it just covered travel.

    I just think Paris is kind of overrated.
    It's only a little funny, but more sad, that your criteria for liking a place is how similar it is to the US.

    I have to admit, even from a foreign perspective, it does appear that North Korea is cartoonishly anti-American. But that's the only one.

    What, so you just shouldn't go?

    Or maybe the answer is, try not to do anything overtly and stupidly illegal when visiting other countries (or anywhere)?

    Friendly, reasonably attractive people, more or less clean cities, etca, etca...

    Seems as good a standard as any to judge a country on to me.

    I'm frankly not even comparing Germany to the whole of the United States here so much as the South. lol

    Sorry, you're wide open for this one, I just have to take it...

    You can't really be saying that you think one of the USA's strong points is attractive people, can you?

    My first instinct would be to say... Yes, compared to the people you saw in Paris.

    That might be one actual example, but I'd counter that we are equally anti-North Korean.

    Honestly though, I've read some interesting travel stories. From what I've seen, it's actually one of the safest places to travel.

    I was unimpressed to say the least. I frankly think I see more beautiful women on an average night here in downtown Charleston than I did in my entire time in the city.

    My (Indian) hotel clerk was kind of cute, and I saw one or two strikingly attractive Asian women walking around here and there. Everyone else was a pretty solid "meh" at best.

    Exactly the opposite was the case in Germany. I couldn't leave my hotel room without running into at least a couple of mid range 7s, and even the occasional 8 or 9.
