British tourists in Europe are like American tourists in Florida. It's cheap, relatively close, and the purpose it get shiat-faced on vacation/spring break. If you had spent a ton of money going somewhere far away you probably wouldn't waste it getting... well, wasted.

Talking to tour guides in Ireland, they said that it was the Germans that were the worst tourists.

And of course they don't have to get up as early in the morning to place their towels on all the sun loungers.

British tourists are a lot like American ones, just drunker, ruder and they spend less money.

As far as I'm concerned, the drunk British babies were the best thing about visiting Las Palmas.

A list of all the usual suspects:

Ugly Americans
Ugly Russian neo-riche mafiosi with too much money
British louts
Rude Chinese tourists
Rude German tourists
Rude French tourists (but who ever met a French tourist outside of France, or at the limits Italy?)
Drunk Canadian byes (passing for British louts and Ugly Americans if we're lucky)
Aussies with back packs and roo jerky

The Plague Years must be very Heaven to ex-pats and travelers who don't want to be confused with tourists or surrounded by their own kind. If only I were rich, I'd join the floaters in this septic tank of international white trash, plus Asians.

Make way for the Fat Berg, the waiters and rent boys and girls would cry!

Spring break was sort of a dud this year, so I'm sure that there are a lot of Mexican hotel halls that didn't get crapped upon, and a sea of vomit that didn't run through the streets of Cancun and Cozumel.

I visited Majorca a couple times when I was in the Navy, don't think we saw a Brit that wasn't wasted. Ran into some Hash House Harriers one evening, they could drink sailors under the table.

I'm no Fat Berg, but I am kind of reserved and some people claim I am cold. Most of me is about nine tenths underwater, though.

The thing about Europe is that they secretly hate all their neighbouring countries with a hatred that's embedded in their DNA.
Most of the folks who emigrated to North 'merikuh did it so they could simplify their hatred to a collective Europe.
Anyhoo, we're all assholes & such.

If you suppress water or your natural instincts, it turns them into artisian fountains, geysers of embarassment. Angry hotelier at the front desk should have told you.

Subby is missing the (often) older stag/hen parties and older British female sex tourists. The first is definitely loud and obnoxious. Not to mention while the men might buy a hooker in Amsterdam.

The women are quite grabby with the guys, to the point one of my friends told two British gals she'd sic the cops on them if they continued grabbing her friend's junk while he was working. Also older female sex tourists in the Dominican Republic, Bali, Kenya, are also apparently quite obnoxious.

You think Europeans hate each other? I spent two years in Switzerland. Every village and valley hates the next one over more than cannibal tribes in Papua New Guinea, and they are kind to tourists with money as long as the money keeps coming. One of the oldest and most advanced civilizations in Europe, although I do love the American Herman Melville's word "snivilization" and think it applies to almost everything human.

I learned in Switzerland that if I broke the rules, I heard bad things about Americans behind my back, but if I wore a plaid shirt while breaking the rules, I heard bad things about the British.

Canadian dollar was really low at that time. Two Swiss francs, IIRC.

Canada: The Invisible Enemy. Hee, hee, hee. RAOTFLMAO.

I'm as embarrassed as anyone by the vile drunken Brits abroad but please, the Germans in Majorca are equally devoid of legs to stand on at the end of the night.
Dutch too

Just stay the hell away from Magaluf. Nothing good ever happened there.

I wonder why that is. Us Irish tend to get along very well with Germans, they find our light-heartedness amusing, and we find their seriousness amusing, and we both like beer.

Lived in the South of France. Yeah, the Brits were "interesting", more arrogant than the French. I thought the Germans were worse-"move out of my way, I'm taking up the entire sidewalk", and sidewalks were narrow in that little town. Aussies, good fun, nice group. Cafe I used to frequent was torched recently, as they were (supposedly) hiring out of towners to work there. Not illegal aliens, people from other parts of France.
CSB: Go to France if you love food, it's great. Learn some French. A more formal society than is realized here in the US, manners count, make the effort, and you should have a good time. Or be the Ugly Tourist, complain about the attitudes, that you couldn't get in to see something, that the cabbies were rude, waiters got your order wrong or didn't come back and the best food you had, was at the MacDonald's in Paris.

Last time I was in Spain I didn't see another person from the UK except for my wife. I didn't hear any English, and I didn't speak any, except to my wife. It was great. We caught the shuttle bus to the airport half an hour after they announced the lockdown would start midday the next day.

If I am in another country and I hear lots of people talking in English, I find the quality of my trip abroad declines rapidly.

I don't go to other countries to be unable to tell the difference between there and here.

I especially don't go to feel like I am in Manchester city centre.

cheap package tours are partly to blame.

cheap drinks and alcoholism is a bad combo.

special20: Just the Brits?


Actually yes, probably just the Brits.

There is a certain level of being drunk that exceeds anything that I've ever seen before with any other groups of people. "British Drunk" is at a level of drunk that is difficult to imagine. You have to see it... witness it... it's... fascinating, but can quickly become annoying.

It's the inverse of the 'British Hot' equation.

The Brits are loud and obnoxious and want everybody to speak English. The Germans are aggressive and pretend not to understand English when they cut in line in front of you.

This is true in Arizona, anyway.

And we get LOTS of tourists
