    Maybe UK, Ireland, Eastern-Europe?
    What are your experiences?

    And did you ever pretend to be of a different nationality (Canada?) whilst you were travelling abroad?

    I never pretend to be anything other than an American. I travel all over Europe. Never had any problems with anyone, even in Muslim countries!

    White American men aren't even welcome here in America.

    It depends on the attitude of the American in question.

    I think it's safe to say that American's (of all colours) will be welcome in most of Europe. They may encounter protests against America, but I seriously doubt they'd be singled-out because of American foreign policy in the middle east.

    And if they were to encounter any hostility in countries that have suffered economic hardship as a result of military actions or trade embargoes, once they started flashing the green; those once fierce enemies of the west would become their best friends in a heartbeat.

    In short, the dollar opens doors for mortals that Muhammad can only dream of.

    Mind you I was born in the USA, so my opinion is only representative of my ego.

    That should cover all of Australia.

    Although I would like to see Australia, I don't think I could stand all the flies.

    If you're polite, and don't act like you were hatched under a rock, you get treated the same, and are accepted everywhere..
