    Bulgaria

    I think that's it. My fave is New Zealand. It's low stress, very friendly, decent people, beautiful terrain, not too expensive.

    Least fave... well they all had some good qualities, but probably united states was my least fave.

    I strongly disagree, and I am ashamed to hear this from you.

    Ukraine is the best country in the world.

    Not everything in life is about money.

    Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Germany, Kuwait, Iraq. Germany rules, so clean & no drastic difference between rich & poor, like here. Children are light years ahead of Americans.

    Live in Venezuela, visited:

    1. Colombia
    2. Peru
    3. Chile
    4. Ecuador
    5. Panama
    6. Guatemala
    7. Trinidad & Tobago
    8. Costa Rica
    9. Brasil
    10. United States

    I really like Brasil and the States, well I actually like all of them, every country has its own characteristics that makes them unique.

    One thing I did not liked was Peru's weather, it is always cloudy and never rains, I think it has not rain there like in 20 years or something.

    I totally agree about Germany.If the weather was a bit sunnier and warmer I would move there immediately.Surely the best place I've visited to raise children.

    I live in Finland and I've visited:

    Sweden
    Norway
    Denmark
    Iceland
    Great Britain
    France
    Netherlands
    Belgium
    Spain
    Italy
    Switzerland
    Germany
    Estonia
    Greece
    USA

    I've liked best Belgium (great food and beer), Greece (perfect summer holiday), Switzerland (the Alps are amazing), USA (the tour in the state of NY was fantastic). I don't think I've not liked any place. Though, no need to go again to Canary Islands or Rome. You can pretty much see all that there is to see during one visit. :)

    I like France and Sweden the most for the atmosphere, way of life, scenery and friendly people. One footnote to add, I hate Paris as I have to visit there frequently for business and unfortunately I get to stay in the crappiest places.

    I agree about Roma.I have been there 3 times and always argue that is very overrated.Italy has soo much to see and enjoy than to spend much time in overcrowded Rome.

    ppfftt!!and my dad agrees with me!:p
