Yey, deffo New Zealand. Skiing, surfing, beaches, fabulous mountains, a little bit of partying, lots of seclusion, great wine, lovely.

Sure, the USA has everything too - but how long does it take to get between the things?

p.s. I think the UK isn't too bad actually, if you can put up with skiing in scotland!

Politics aside, USA has alot offer. Huge cities, rural areas, nice beaches, powder snow, and diverse people. Maybe, that's why Americans don't travel outside their borders. It's a shame.

I think everywhere is unique...

An hour from Calgary in different directions can bring you to places like the badlands of Drumheller and Brooks, The Prairies, or Banff in the Rockies.

I wouldnt say New Zealand, sure it has nice scenery but its not big enough, to cold and has no big influential cities or world famous landmarks...

which country has the great barrier reef, some of the best beaches in the world, landmarks like the Uluru, the Sydney opera house, and the harbour bridge. A huge variety in climate ranging from very pleasent mild temperatures down south to tropical up north!!!

Mild temps in Melbourne - have you been there?? I guess not! ;)

I'd back Italy all the way - wonderful people, great food, fantastic scenery, history, modernity, culture up to your eyeballs, skiing, shopping, dining, dancing, the best open air museums in the world, the seat of modern civilisation - home of one of the worlds greatest powers in its time and Gelato. Who could not consider it having it all.

NZ rocks too but I can at least admit I'm biased on this one. No more than an hour to a beach from any place, great friendly people, none of that big city cold heartedness (did you know londoners have come out as most unhappy people in the UK in a survey out this week?). Hot dry summers if you want them, temperate or humid ones if you prefer, extremes of hot and cold, long long long summers leading into crystal clear winters. You can ski all day and go sit in a neck deep hot pool for the evenings, or windsurf/jet ski your time away then lie out watching the stars turn above you! You want the good life you'll find it there! (wow -that went on a bit longer than I expected...)
PS Mat44 - Auckland is one of the worlds 'largest' cities...
