Been to Europe many times and I have been to the most popular areas of the US and I can say that I wouldn't particularly choose one over the other. At least the one nice thing for Europe is that everything is rather close to each other while in the US for example of you want to visit NYC and then Cali and then Florida then you have a hell of a lot of traveling to do.
both shitholes. american cities are just giant malls nowadays while europe's main attractions are ruins left by a war of a bygone era.
at least the USA still has some great natural areas though. then again, if you're trying to get laid, europe is surely the better place by miles. less Christian conservatives, lots of eurotrash chicks and fitter people in general.
I am convinced. Chile is #1 tourist destination, I suppose. Off to buy my ticket!
Why on earth do you have to be adventurous to go to Central or Eastern Europe?
Oh and to answer the TS, Europe is the way to go. Just go to Amsterdam, it has everything you need.
I´d imagine someone coming from South America would sooner find countries such as France, Spain or Italy ´safer´ options, if only because those are countries that are easier to relate to. And take it from someone who lives in Amsterdam: as much as I love the town, it is overrated.
