Worst five cities/places you’ve been to


#201

Last time I went to Merthyr the vacuum factory was on fire


#202

that sucks


#203

Hoovered up any opportunities for sure


#204

Naples
Paris
Athens
Luton
Perth

Just close them all down.


#205

I was also baffled by this. Great place all round.


#206

Don’t think I’ve ever been anywhere really terrible. Even places that might look ropey at first usually have some redeeming features and good people.


#207

I would totally agree… apart from Whitley Bay.


#208

shitehole all round, full of tourists EDIT: sorry I thought you were replying to my Edinburgh jibe


#209

Top Crudholes, Southern Hampshire Edition:

Eastleigh
Hedge End
West End
Chandlers Ford
Fareham (inc. Whiteley)

Can’t believe I forgot these, could happily replace my whole list up there with this selection of bland horror.


#210

And yet, no mention of Paulsgrove or Cosham (a little further easterly, granted).


#211

Lots of pretty horrible UK places.

Elsewhere, Turin is the only place that springs to mind. Quite pretty surroundings - the drive over the French border is one of the best things I’ve ever done - but the city itself felt very nothingy? Might be unfair as I was only there for two weekdays. Nothing

Had mixed experiences with Paris. Lots of absolutely grim sights. One of the only places I’ve felt a bit on-edge


#212

Never go to Milan out of ‘season’


#213

Had my hotel room broken into and robbed in Guatemala city. Felt a begrudging respect for the thief though cos they took our passports out of a travel wallet and left them on the bed. Would have been a nightmare to sort that out.


#214

I meant the current Liga Nord types and this type of stuff nearby:


#215

Turin was a welcome respite from the horrors of Milan for me.

Plus the shroud museum is hilarious.


#216

LOL, no.


#217

Yeah but thats Lombardy for you, particularity in the countryside, and La Liga Nord is a bit more complicated then just a neo-facist group as it is very much tied to northern nationalism and independence it has a broad coaltion of supporters, often with differing views. (and it has never been advertised as a neo facist party or even particularly right wing taking populist ideas across the political spectrum. But I would agree that it is a bit neo-facist) and is popular in the entire region and especially Venato.

Its just that Brescia is actually one of the more left leaning cities in the region. For sure it will have active neo-facist sect as every city of a smiler size in the north east of italy has. But it also has a lively antifa movement and has been regularly electing centre left mayors and politicians while Milan was still throughly in the hands of the PdL.


#218

When did you go to Milan? I’ve heard it used to be proper shit but has had a real improvement in the last few years - I have gone a lot with work for the last 2 years and it’s always been pretty nice and cool - Just not as picturesque as other Italian cities.


#219

Paris
Basingstoke
Newport
Sunderland
Basically anywhere in Spain that is full of British people

(Also I go to LA all the time and it’s amazing but I can totally understand how if you went as a full tourist it would seem massively shit)


#220

For my 19th birthday, so I would prefer to not answer that question please and thank you.
