I have been to many European countries, could not pick one over the other. If you want to travel to one and need advice send me private d_levin at hotmail. The closest European place you can get and also one of my favorite is Azores Islands, Portugal. That is 4 hours flight from USA, there are more than a dozen states here that would take you longer flight. If you do not know where Azores is google it. That is an amazing place with beautiful nature. For example we walked inside a crater of dormant volcano. It has amazing cuisine, mostly fish, good wine for 5 euro. And it is very cheap compared to Paris and London, or actually almost anywhere in Europe because it is Portugal. The only little problem is I believe all flights by Azores Air ( www.azoresairlines.pt ) are from Boston and Toronto. It is about 5-6 hours drive from Bucks Co to Logan airport in Boston. But it is worth it.
