Which country do you like the most and why?
Which country do you dislike and the reason?
I started to answer this but struggled with the dislike bit... I love Germany.. Esp the south... The people are great and the scenery is beautiful.. I just like the German way..
Not sure about dislike..... I don't like the official side of Switzerland... But it's a stunning country.. Don't like French cities... But it's villages can be incredible...
Cosy in Italy... Then there's the lakes... (love them)..
Love France & Holland & Luxembourg .....
Been all over and can't say I dislike anywhere
Err, err,.... :Blush: let me think, err, err, Parc V.. nope not yet, err, err, the Alg... nope :Blush: err, err, :Sad:
We haven't bl**dy got there yet, innit! :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Dislike; the bloody UK. it just won't let go!!!
It all depends on the time of year for me.
Spring, France, preferably the south. Markets come alive, good food, small villages, good weather.
Summer, Norway, Fishing, scenery, great company, good weather.
Autumn, Germany. Great touring, scenery, ease of parking, good weather.
Winter, Spain, Cheap living, good food, good weather.
I cant think of anywhere in Europe I dislike other than anywhere that's wet, cold and windy.
France, it seems to be a pace of life there like it used to be here in the 60`s .
We have been to a few in the motorhome and loved them all for very different reasons, although the country I hate everytime I'm on my way home is England nothing to do with the people just hate driving home and because we have to drive through England I normally moan all the way home. :Laughing::Rofl1:
Everyone knows my answer, Italy. The style, the lifestyle, the climate, the food, the ice-cream, it's just special.
There's nowhere we hate.
Spent a week in Abu Dhabi once and I fail to find anything nice to say about the place. Even Saudi Arabia has great scenary in places but Abu Dhabi has 'nowt from I saw.
Love France, probably wouldn't like the cities much, but don't like any cities anywhere.
Spain for the weather out of the summer period.
Only place I don't like going to is the UK, and there are a few reasonable places there too.
I'm with Brian on Italy but I have many favourites not when it is too hot though, too hot is no fun anywhere. I also like southern France.
This week I have booked a hotel in Cyprus, I like Cyprus too, I have spent much time there.
All in all it depends what you want or expect from your visit, scenery is ok but we soon get bored with nice views, well I do anyway.
I spent last weekend in my favourite county Suffolk, dont knock it until you have tried it.
Problem is we are all spoilt by the ease in which we can now travel to absolutely anywhere we want so I find that where we stay and who we stay with is more important than just picking a place on the map. I'll give Smugger as an example, great company and a holiday of enlightenment. What more could you ask from any destination.:Cool:
I like France, Ireland and Thailand.
Egypt and Bali, I would rather eat Old Mo's underpants start naked in Hull wearing and English Rugby shirt cavorting with Dayglow on the roof of a Burster than go to those shite holes again.
"Skegness".... for all the girls who were gagging for me... :thumb:
Soufend for all them that turned my advances down... :Blush:
Any where it`s sunny and warm....:thumb:
Even Devon.... :Rofl1:
Greek Island's.especially Thasos.love France but not city's.Can't think of any I don't like.
i thought the OP was a question regarding European destinations or has the EU cast its net while i was getting my dinner:Rofl1:
Love Norway , Austria, Portugal and we used to avoid France like the Plague when i was in the forces, then got a motorhome and we love the place. to be accurate we like most of Europe including the Black sea area in Bulgaria ( not been there in the van).
and wait for it........ WE HAVE NEVER BEEN TO MAINLAND SPAIN!oh: on any type of travel.
Anywhere except --------------------Hinckley:Rofl1:
Western Canada and the USA are our favourites, especially Wyoming and Alaska, don't like anywhere with sand or camels involved.
Been to loads of places on business, less on hols.
Like Germany, New Zealand, Thailand, USA, and most other places. Yet to discover France but looking forward to it from what people on here say.
Countries I did not like
Saudi Arabia, and Israel.
We travel to meet local people rather than sights, and find interesting, lovely and the not so good people everywhere. Most countries have a feel about them too, these are the basis of the picks.
USA - whether people are at the top or bottom of the pile it's a country with unbounded optimism and a positive attitude, sometimes completely dotty too so a perfect destination.
Germany, in the main great sense of humour and a great wish to enjoy life.
France, so laid back anywhere rural, but don't think you ever belong
Holland, unique and friendly but a bit more serious than Germany
Tunisia, 3 months in a MH away from the coast, the most generous and friendly people ever, one man even offered his underpants???
Don't want to visit again... Andorra, a nation of traders who don't have a lot going for them
Anywhere that is a major tourist destination, visitors are merely processed as they arrive in such large numbers
BENIDORM, mainly because its smudger freindly, and shiftzz proof.................................
