Call me an antisocial miserable sod if u like 👍 but sun and beaches and drinking = absolute nightmare. never seen the point of making yourself ill, bored and burnt, 😁 with a risk of liver damage and developing skin cancer, while people fight over their territorial pissing rights to a lounger or patch of beach, as for sad seasonal trends in holiday clothes, every tourist can be spotted a mile off. Don't get me started on cruises, and the sterile packaged culture 🤘

If you go somewhere new its to immerse yourself in the culture, food and scenery. Try something new not live in a plastic pretend world that you have to bore everyone about through endless crappy social media posts. Ive got a distant relative who starts every conversation about the next abattoir of a resort their going to or come from, they actually believe it makes them special and is some kind of status symbol.

I don't mean to offend anyone who likes the costas .........… a f**ck it yes I do 😁. I think I grew up with this mentality as I live in a seaside resort of sorts, and as such tourists are something that clogs your roads up and takes all the parking places in town, in fact if its sunny on a bank holiday everyone who is local stays home 😂

eeee thas nout as good as a northan rant  - reminds me of song

National shite day

Exactly most of my holiday planning these days starts with a pre-emptive Google search of 'specialty coffee shops in...'

However I agree with your sentiment about getting pished up and sunburnt......
