    I still find it odd that I'm the most well traveled.

    I've been to France, Italy, Spain, Russia and Portugal. I have indeed traveled well but only in Europe. I've never been to Ireland or Scotland, and therefore I haven't even seen most of the British Isles, which I regret. There's just not really a good pretense to go to Scotland...

    I've never left the east coast. I've never really had the urge to leave the country since I get the distinct impression that everyone hates tourists and particularly American ones.

    American tourists are pretty much the most loathed tourists in the world

    I wonder if I dressed in a Hawaiian shirt with shorts, sandals, sunglasses, and a goofy hat and wandered around taking lots of pictures and mentioned to people how interesting everything is and got excited over things that are commonplace, maybe people would see me as quaint and harmless rather than obnoxious and in the way.

    I always say I'm Canadian when outside the country just because other American tourists ruined it for the Americans who are actually good tourists.

    Though I've met some Europeans in my state who were annoying tourists too.

    not that i've been anywhere but the idea that europeans hate americans is probably not true. i know everywhere on the internet i've ever been with large european population, whenever they talk about a trip to america they always say how great americans actually are.

    I also want to act like a totally stereotypical tourist and take incredible interest in things that are commonplace in an attempt to convince the locals that we don't have things like salads or brewed tea.

    "What are these crunchy things!? They're delicious!"

    "Croutons?"

    "We have to buy a bag to bring home!"

    Hahaha RC.

    Reminds me of the time I went to Australia and met with a bunch of schoolchildren who didn't realize that Americans use fahrenheit so when they asked me how the temperature was back home, I said "around 100 degrees" without thinking and they thought I was some kind of superhuman.

    Interestingly, in countries that Americans don't visit often, it's frequently the British the locals don't like. I spent 6 weeks in Greece last summer, and people were always quite pleasantly surprised to learn I was American and not British like the usual visiting Anglophone.

    You 21 yet/your friends, and by your friends I mean your female friends. If so, let's get our drunk on.

    If I was there you'd go with me.







    As far as people hating American tourists it's a misconception. Locals usually hate tourists in general. Period.

    That reminds me of a hilarious Omegle conversation I had.

    Stranger: Where are you from?
    Me: The U.S., you?
    Stranger: Georgia.
    Stranger: Hello, America!
    Me: Hello, Russia.
    Stranger: ...wtf.
    Stranger: Fuck you.
    *disconnect*

    Mother fucker never even saw it coming =>_>=

    You mean the Soviety Union right? Georgia was never part of Russia, unless you mean the Russian empire.

    not 21 until August. Sorry to disappoint.

    Last Animenext some friends and I played Mario Kart while drunk, though. It was fantabulous. But fuck Toad's Turnpike; that course is nothing short of ridiculously impossible while drunk.

    But yeah, Europe is pretty much like a soap opera. Kind of fun to watch, though, especially now with Greece's economy imploding and screwing everyone else in the EU over...

    None of the European leaders at the moment are competent. People tend to dislike English-speaking tourists because they never learn other languages and force tourist destinations to anglicise to accommodate them.

    It's a joke. Putin wants the to assimilate Georgia.
