    If you were to provide a little more detail, you might get more informative answers.
    What are you planning to do on your visit?
    How long will you be going away for?
    Where do you actually live?
    What's the budget?

    I'm with @Apple fanboy below.

    A bit more about your interest and preferences, - do you like adventure, or relaxing on holiday? Does spectacular scenery do it for you, or doe you prefer cities? As for activities, would you prefer to do things, or are you someone to chill by a pool? What about history and culture - do you like old cities? Or prefer the countryside as 'real' and 'uncontaminated'? Or some sort of mix? Will you be travelling alone, with someone, or in a group? What are you interested in?

    And @Apple fanboy's questions are good ones, too. How long do you plan to be away? What is you budget?



    Good questions, agreed.
    And very remote, and very, very boring….

    I have always been rather keen on France, myself.

    But, perhaps, it may not be a good idea to visit there over the coming weeks.

    The Netherlands is great, and I rather like Belgium. And Italy is simply sublime.

    Austria and Germany have their charm, and the Dalmatian coast of the Balkans is stunning.

    Have you ever traveled outside the US before? If so would you prefer something completely new, or something similar to where you've been? There are many places that would be fascinating to see, but as other people have said we need to know more about what your interests and budget are to be able to give a good recommendation.

    Spain and Greece are best during the tourist season to fully experience what they have to offer, not as fun during the slow season unless you plan on colder climate for some skiing; etc...

    I have to say Italy is my favourite country that I have visited so far. I went to Rome. The sites, people, weather and especially the food is amazing!!

    Yemen.

    Once you arrive, the Houthis, Islah, and the al-Qaeda insurgency will just about fall over themselves, competing to show you their brand of hospitality.

    To be honest, Antarctica strikes me as the sort of place that would present an unseasonal challenge irrespective of when one paid the continent a visit. While I'd class myself as pretty widely travelled, this is not one destination that is on my list of places to visit.

    We have two colleagues at work who go quite often to support the military out there.
    The work doesn't take that long, but waiting for the return flight leaves them plenty of time.
    Other than some birding, and photography the only other thing to do is hang out in the subsidised bar!
