I have decided to give out awards to countries I have visited.
Best Country for Parks
And the winner is...United Kingdom. Far and away better public parks than any where I have ever been.
Best Country for Food
And the winner is...America. It has to be America. We have the best of every country.
And the winner is...France. It doesn't involve bars or clubs, but rather picnics beside the river, the lawn of the Eiffel Tower, or in parks. Not just regular picnics, but 5 course picnics. Wine is also abundant.
And the winner is...The South. Do I even need to explain?
And the winner is...Europe. Rat tails and mullets are never okay.
Best Looking Girls
And the winner is...France. Maybe it is all the fashion that draws them there? I really don't care. It works.
And the winner is...France. Maybe it is the fashion that draws them there...
And the winner is...England. It is everywhere, and very well preserved.
And the winner is...Austria. Especially Vienna's Innerstadt (The old part of the city) and almost all of Salzburg was very clean.
Best Public Transportation
And the winner is...England. London's Tubes are incredible and the taxi drivers are great too.
And the winner is...Austria and Germany. The Alps, duh.
Worst dressed people
And the winner is...Austria. Jean shorts and tank tops are still a common occurrence. Need I say more?
Best Country to Open a Cigarette Stand
And the winner is...Austria. Smoking is still allowed in restaurants, and people take advantage of it.
And the winner is...England. My roommate and friend Ben fell and cut a gash above his eye, blood was everywhere. He went to the hospital and the sewed him up and all they asked was for his name. He didn't have to show ID or insurance. Oh, and it was completely free. Now I know it is socialized healthcare, and it really stinks for the doctors, but it sure was great for Ben.
