Ik kom uit Nederland en jouw/uw (uw is formal) land is echt fantastisch. I heb een geweldige tijd gehad en jij/u (u is formal again) was een fantastische begeleider (well, 'begeleider' is just one of the options).

Hmm...it seems that 'fantastic' is a fairly new word in the global lexicon because many languages don't deviate much from it.

We have it as 'fantastisch' in Dutch and German while Russian pronounces it as 'fantastisheskee'.

Keep those translations coming in!

Icelandic: Ég er frá Íslandi og landið þitt er æðislegt. Ég skemmti mér ótrúlega vel hérna og þú varst frábær gestgjafi.
