Fodors is a good site but I would like to find a site where more Europeans are asking questions about America.

Just as an example, I went to Google.de , which is the German version of Google, and did a search for REISEN + DISKUSSION (meaning TRAVEL + FORUM), and got links to several travel discussion forums where the discussions took place in German.

Do Europeans participate in the American section of the Fodors forum? I don't know, as I haven't yet explored Fodors' American section.

Yes, we use the west and east Europe branches of the Thorn Tree of Lonely Planet: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/. People in those fora are a bit younger, a bit poorer, and used to going to such places as Kosice, Brasov, Celle, and La Rochelle. I am not sure we are primary users, as there too north Americans and Australians are common. I have not looked at Thorn Tree USA.

I would suggest www.virtualtourist.com I don't read those US boards that often, just once in a great while for my city, but that site in general seems to have a very broad spectrum of users from all over the world, which is why I like it. Americans seem in the minority, and a lot of the questions I post on for European travel are from other Europeans, not Americans.

I think it remains a fact of life that the web is dominated by Americans and as such so will the travel sites be.

This is the best site I've ever found, from whichever side of the Atlantric one comes.
