Switzerland, the French alps this year were beautiful, Italy has sketchier driving but is cheaper and great for food, the hillier parts of Serbia I did last year or the year before were great. It kinda depends on what we were able to do - a longer time period I might go for cheaper countries whereas if it's only a week or so I'd probably hit the big rewards, ie. big French/Swiss mountains.
Every country has good and bad bits but the big bang for buck stuff is also the more expensive. There's some amazing scenery in Montenegro - Pluzine/Durmitor for example that I'd totally hit again:
Any of the control points are worth exploring more:
May I suggest Bosnia for cheap and cheerful ultraracing experience? :)
Not seen that race before.
Crossed Bosnia in my first TCR and there was also the epicly sweary CP5 last year (Bjelašnica)
I really should try and write more about these races as an aid to my shocking memory but it's hard to process two weeks of 'stuff' and afterwards I just don't want to relive it via my twitter feed.
