It's funny isn't it, Corn King? Wink

Brazil is seen as the poor country by many portuguese people. And now some portuguese even thought about Brazil paying them what they need xD

Naah, I joke Wink
Finland is just wtf.

And awesome vid, Corn.
I specially like the part where he goes :
' Portugal and Spain divided the world in two and Portugal stayed with the best part...................Brazil! ' Epic Very Happy

Well, Portugal kinda messed it up and Finland isn't willing to pray the price for their mistakes. Understandable I say.
Of course the Portuguese just want to get back on their feet.

Maybe he's from Peru but lives in the Netherlands? Just like you? Or maybe the other way round?

Or maybe he just loves Peru more than the Netherlands.
I do hate my country, too. Germany sucks.

Wow, you must someday share some pictures from Porto, Portugal. After all, your city won the best European Best Destination 2012, Corn King!! Whenever you get time, upload some good pictures that anyone visiting from North America must see (in your opinion!).

Nice list for boring tourism Razz

But where are: Locronan, Lourmarin, Lavertezzo, Minucciano, Pardatch, Capoliveri, la Chaisse, Rowardennan, Bygdin and Gunwaloe? (not really top 10, but places that pop up in my head that are pretty damn awesometastic)
The top ten listed in your link, is the places you should avoid the most, not look for Wink Now, I'm glad my favourites aren't listed on your site, but you can try my top 10 and compare! Very Happy


BTW: They forgot friggin' Iceland, what the heck?!!

It's true that when people go 'tourist-visiting' other countries/places, most go to the main-stream locations that are advertised on television, internet ads, newspapers... etc. The people that really want to experience another country and it's culture, roots, history, food, lifestyle, views, etc actually pay more attention to traveling at a 'local culture' level. For example, instead of going to some fancy five-star hotel and eating from the thousands of obvious tourist locations or buying typical tourist souveniers -- try staying at a more local place in the country/area, ask the local grocer what kind of places are nice to see in the city or countryside, talk to the locals about nice places to visit or real great food to try. You'll get amazing recommendations and tips to places/things about the country that you would never have found out from just talking to the default 'tour-guides' who get paid high money by tourist companies just to tell you standard things like "This is Tower of London. Enjoy. This is Eiffel Tower. Enjoy.", etc, etc. Some of the locals might even be kind enough to take you on tours themselves to great secret or beautiful views that only the locals know about.

As always though, be careful of your own safety and your group -- there is a danger in traveling or being led around by someone not part of an official tourism business, you might be risking your money and lives if you choose someone that takes you down a dark alley to rob you of money and etc. So be careful and cautious! But if you have the courage and enough experience, definitely try traveling with a more 'local' mindset instead and you might be surprised at how wonderful your abroad experience can be. =)


On the same note, this topic is about promoting your own country/city, not discussing if it is actually a good/bad place to travel/visit. =)

Buuuuut... just to say.... 1:19 in the video. Very nice example of the atmosphere and architecture history of Porto -- this kind of building style I've seen a lot in steam-punk kind of fantasy settings/stories/movies/art/concept drawings. In fact, I think lots of those Pokemon shows/movies and also anime medieval-fantasy shows take inspiration from the kind of settings Porto offers.

+1 to places TNaismith will plan a trip... Very Happy

Heh, so...


Where is Czech rep.?: https://maps.google.cz/maps?q=mapy+ceska+republika&ie=UTF-

[b]Czech rep. Info/History:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Republic

Info video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mLBqgmmVQI&feature=fvwrel

Video from Prague: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiFPDKfw4gI&feature=fvwrel



Czech republic is one of the worst place for life. All is bad, really, and i am optimistic.
We have no government, we have mafia, really.
We have one of the largest tax in the world every few months tax increases. Salaries are poor, living conditions too. Our fellow citizens are aggressive and dogged. No one I did not want to be born here. That's reason, why we drink so much Very Happy


Very Happy have fun
