(obviously I'm not talking about Benidorm)
I've been all around the world, Lisa Stansfield style. to the South Pacific, Asia, the Americas, all over Europe...but they are no more beautiful than Spain which is only a 2 hour flight away. I would move there tomorrow if we could feasibly make a living there.. sigh..

YABU imo.

But yeah, it's a matter of opinion.

It's Italy or actually parts of the UK for me.

WorraLiberty Sat 10-Nov-12 22:00:27

Really?

My MIL is Spanish and moved here when she was 16

She rarely goes back to visit cos she much prefers it here

Different strokes and all that

McKayz Sat 10-Nov-12 22:01:32

YABU it is about opinion. We drove through the Yorkshire Dales today. Absolutely beautiful.

Onebadbackandalostpelvicfloor Sat 10-Nov-12 22:01:34

Yabu it's bland and grim. Give me Germany and Eastern Europe any day

Roseformeplease Sat 10-Nov-12 22:02:05

YABU. You clearly haven't been to Scotland.

OpheliaPayneAgain Sat 10-Nov-12 22:02:45

I doubt you'd find anything more beautiful than England on a sunny autumn day with all the leaves turning russet and gold. But thats just me.

For sheer vibrancy, latin America, I'd move there like a shot. Mainland Europe never has done it for me.

McKayz Sat 10-Nov-12 22:02:57

Oooh yes. I love Scotland. And Snowdonia

autumnlights12 Sat 10-Nov-12 22:03:19

I've been to Scotland, Germany, Italy and the Yorkshire Dales. I still prefer Spain.

Bluestocking Sat 10-Nov-12 22:03:41

Do you work for the Spanish tourist board?

autumnlights12 Sat 10-Nov-12 22:04:01

Nope. Sadly.

thenightsky Sat 10-Nov-12 22:04:46

Every country has its own beauty. I love Spain too OP.. especially the Catalan area, towards the Pyranees.

OutragedAtThePriceOfFreddos Sat 10-Nov-12 22:04:59

Beautiful is different things to different people.

Spain to me is not beautiful, nor are the hills and greenery of the UK, I think the beautiful parts of the world are the places with lots of sand and sea.

Follyfoot Sat 10-Nov-12 22:05:03

England has it all. From the Lake District to the Cotswolds, Northumberland to Cornwall.

Ephiny Sat 10-Nov-12 22:06:40

I love parts of Spain but can think of plenty of other countries that have beautiful regions too.

Not sure this makes sense as an AIBU tbh, surely it's a matter of personal taste/opinion?

McKayz Sat 10-Nov-12 22:07:46

I think it would be better in Chat really

autumnlights12 Sat 10-Nov-12 22:08:10

how many AIBU's strictly belong here though?

GrimAndHumourless Sat 10-Nov-12 22:09:16

There is a patch on the Herefordshire/Shropshire landscape that reduces me to tears, TEARS I tells ya

YABNU to have a very fave landscape in the whole wide world

YABU to decide it should be all our faves

autumnlights12 Sat 10-Nov-12 22:11:29

ok, I agree Grim. IABU to say you should all like the same place as me, as much as I do.

DorisIsWaiting Sat 10-Nov-12 22:12:38

No, like anywhere i've been to some bloody awful places in Spain. But yes there are nice areas too. However I now live in south Devon and love it.

MadameCreeper Sat 10-Nov-12 22:22:57

Yabu but i'll give you the Pyrenees and Basque region.

I left my heart in Transylvania.

CaliforniaLeaving Sat 10-Nov-12 22:29:44

I think the UK has the most beautiful countryside of anywhere.

WrathdePan Sat 10-Nov-12 22:52:12

England's Peak District. I'd luuuurve to live there!

Oh hang on......grin

gordyslovesheep Sat 10-Nov-12 22:55:08

German Alps? Yorkshire Dales, Snowdonia?

Scotland is beautiful. I'm so glad I'm lucky enough to live here.
