As a Brit, I'd definitely second Scotland if you have the chance.

Also a big fan of Germany, with particular emphasis on Bavaria.

I've attached a little snap I took when I was last Kayaking there, wonderful place.

United States. I am half Polish, 25% Croat and Slovak. So I guess Middle East is out? Russia? Serbia perhaps and eastern Ukraine and Crimea?

Thanks Rush. Good pictures!

I met a pair from the US a couple of years ago that were hiking and backpacking around europe. They had the Canadian Flag sewed to their backpack to minimize their own risk because the reputation of the US.


Europe is more diverse than most think so you can easily get your needs out. If you like a culinary stop on your way I have heard very good of Amsterdam, Krakow and munich. You can't go wrong there. Peace you'll find out in the open wild. Here I would recomend the nordic countries since our law states it is free to Hike and put up tenta almost anywhere as long as you show respect for nature and some common sense.

Museums I would recomend a WW2 museum, I think outside arnhem. I'm Told it is the best. If you happen past Stockholm the Wasa museum holds the best preserved shipwreck from the 17th century. Many museums in Sweden are stateowned and also free to enter.

Actually, you'll be fine. I met some cool guys from Chicago when I was in Croatia last summer, so it's nice to know that you're not all gun-toting, creationist, warmongering lunatics.
Just mind the volume of your voice. In Europe we generally speak 5 decibels quieter than US citizens. To our soft ears it sounds like you're all shouting as loudly as possible, even when in a place which is quiet.

HEY GUYS! LOOK! THE INSIDE OF THIS CHURCH IS SURE BEAUTIFUL! IT'S SO QUIET AND PEACEFUL HERE!!!!


You meantioned Russia. I know it's not one of your target countries, but now is actually the best time to visit. The visa is a bit of a pain in the ass to sort out, but the currency here is absolutely fucked. We're talking near economic collapse. So if you do visit, you money is worth soooo much more. As a Brit working here, I weep every time I check the exchange rate and see that my salary is increasingly worthless.
Just over a year ago £1 = 50rub. Today, £1 = 110rub.
The majority of Russians wouldn't care that you're from the USA.

Yes, definitely come to visit here. Though, the coast is not the only tourist attraction like the guy above me said, the river Sava is pretty great, and you could try Plitvice too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plitvi..._National_Park

Spain. My home and a fantastic choice. Nowhere can offer so much in one nation. You want history? We have inhabited sites since pre-ice-age. Neanderthals, celtic, iberian, phoenician, greek, roman, carthaginian, basque, visigoth, byzantine, moorish from at least 3 distinct eras, catholic reconquista and modern sites from the napoleonics and the civil war. There are at least 4 distinct cultures here, each with its own cuisine, rated as the best in the world by tourists last year, mountain, forest, desert, beaches, rivers, 2 distinct coasts, atlantic and mediterranean. And its cheap. A good meal at midday with 2 courses, wine, a desert and coffee will cost from 8-12€ all in. Yeah, and then there's the weather, where I am we have 220+ days of sun a year :D

I'd consider Slovenia as well. Ljubljana is the capital, beautiful city, really friendly locals, good food, good spoken English(exceptionally good infact). And worth it for a day trip to Lake Bled if nothing else.
