So.. NASA just got funded to perform a lander mission to Europa.

I think this is promising, moreso than mars even.

Reasons:

1) Europa has an atmosphere, which is pure oxygen
2) Jupiter has an enormous magnetosphere, 10X stronger than earths, which also engulfs europa
3) Europa has plenty of liquid water on the surface

Bad news:

1) Jupiter spews massive amounts of radiation
2) Its 260 degrees Fahrenheit below zero

It's nowhere near that cold here, where did you get that nonsense from? And you've spelled Europe wrongly.

Speaking of places that arent europe, theres this little airline that flies out of baltimore to Iceland for like 200 bucks round trip regularly. I think it might be cool to visit iceland.

I will not be volunteering for a mission there. 50 degree highs are about as cold as I ever want it to get.

Iceland is on my short list of places to go. Why so cheap?!?

just checked a random date on their website, seems to pretty much a standard fare. 99 bucks each way.

You can hop from plate to plate in Iceland.

"Now I'm in Europe"
"Now I'm in America"

It would be as anticlimactic as when I stop at the continental divide to piss first into the Atlantic, and then into the Pacific.
