For all you folk that don't see.

If you had say 3 grand to spend on a holiday.

You're telling me you'd spend it on some caravan or shit hotel somewhere in UK with overpriced shitty food and pissing down rain.

Coming all this way to see stonehenge or eating fish and chips on Blackpool prom.

Nothing wrong with the above but surely they must think wtf.

 

You think folk are coming over here and staying in a butlins?

I also believe you've never stayed in a nice hotel. Try one of the pigs - stunning.

" kids were off to UK this summer 😁"

" What we going to see? 😕 "

"A wall, some hills and some more hills ... pack your coat"

😔

They do, we usually stay in the UK and we've had some great holidays and see some amazing things and had the best times.

As I say, you either are pretty ignorant about this country and you've never stayed in a lovely boutique hotel, or you're  on a wind up.

Second time you've mentioned nice boutique hotels.

Today I arrived back from staying here. Nothing out of this world and not a hotel but to me was perfect for our stay.

Better then any fancy hotel in the Cotswolds or a dip in the Scarborough sea.

Cotswolds, south coast, lakes, numerous Welsh resorts, the list is endless. Obviously it’s hit and miss with the weather but there’s plenty to do and see. 
 

Best country in the world 

All those places are ace.
 

But it’s really not.

I’d move to Bolty’s gaff in a heartbeat. Other side of the country, obviously. Or France but I’d have to learn the lingo. 
 

We don’t t really have earthquakes though so that’s a bonus.

Woah! Don’t go jumping ship now your party are about to take over. Do you know something we don’t? 😳

Or snakes

Or a variety of other wildlife willing and capable of killing us simply for existing

Or Australians

When I go abroad I want to experience something different from here in UK.

The weather, food, drink, cultures, landscapes etc. But most importantly to me is meeting the people from that country.

Makes me think why the fuck do tourists come to UK.

I get going to see the London Landmarks etc but that's it. Why would anyone fly to see any other UK city?

Weather is shite. Food is mostly shite and a ripoff. The good food, if you can find some isn't British and the general public are cunts.

Why would anyone spend their hard earned cash on a trip here and the return saying they had a good time.

Bet most can't wait to get home.

(My opinion ... don't ask me to prove it)

Which countries have you found the people to be most to your liking?

And are you basing it entirely on bar staff?

Sydney’s great. Never seen any snakes of Australians. It’s like London, never see any English.😊

It’s actually not as bad as London. There are plenty of Aussies and on the whole, are ok. Until you mention cricket.😊

I think I'd be at pains not to mention cricket for the forseeable future

That’s my sons problem at the moment.

My concern is my Indian neighbours, both sides, I’m keeping a low profile at the moment. 😊

They are, however, more sympathetic than the convicts.

:rofl: the silliness of some folk. Been here since 1988. Seen 4 snakes, two of which were dead. A number of redbacks but they can only make you a bit sickly and the antivenom readily available. My (mad) brother catches funnel webs over in NSW as they pay you something like $50 each. They need them to make the antivenom. Those bastards can kill you and have a habit of lurking under leaves in your garden. Moral of the story, don't go to NSW. Queensland neither unless you are fond of humidity and yee-har rednecks.

All of the others are great but stay there matey. Your country needs you.

Whiffs of Johnny1990 this 

"The UK is shit 

At least I admit it 

You all know it 

But you won't say it

At least I say it how it is" 

Can't beat a bit of Northumberland with all the castles and beaches 

Not for sunbathing mind, just walking

It whiffs of someone who’s only ever “holidayed” in some awful, peasant-laden caravan park using vouchers out of The Sun.

probably thinks a mile long stretch of full English breakfasts, €2 pints of San Miguel and karaoke/bingo bars is “culture” overseas.

Talked to a Spanish waiter maybe a couple of times. Chest swelling with pride as he slurred on about Britannia ruling the waves and how we once sank their ships.

I imagine true English culture would bore him stiff. “Once you’ve seen one castle you’ve fuckin seen ‘em all. Where’s the pub?!?!?”
