Gran Canaria. I’ve just mentioned it in another thread, which made me think.

Where are your ‘ok for a bit, but never again’ places?

The welsh valleys.

There's lots, but mainly on the basis that I've been there and done it and there are plenty of other places to visit I've yet to go to. It's rather like books, I've read 100s & enjoyed quite a lot of them, but there are very few I'd want to re-read, & those are all non-fiction, but there 100s I've yet to read.

The new york ones - I've always wanted to go. Is it a "was great but once is enough" kind of thing or a "eurgh get me home!" Kind of thing?

Milan. Really dirty and depressing.

Sunny Beach Bulgaria. We went when my dts were babies. Family resort they said, boozed up Brits abroad we got.

North West Sicily. Away from all tourist areas. We felt very uneasy.

Crikey, I have woken up as Yoda.

San gimignano in tuscany, plastic fake ‘italian’
The rest of italy I absolutely adore but what the hell happened there!?

I’m not fussed about NY Budd. I didn’t like the closed in ness of it - the skyscrapers everywhere so you can only see the sky if you look directly up. I’ve travelled widely to every continent, many cities and even lived in USA for a while, but found NY meh.

I’d not bother with Madrid again, much preferred Barcelona & Valencia.

Yoda it is I have woken up as?

San Francisco. Too many aggressive and scary homeless and drug addicts on the street, who are that way because there is no safety net in the USA and nowhere else to live and beg a few pennies than on the street.

Egypt particularly Sharm

God yes to gran canaria. And Lanzarote and Tenerife. Clearly don't learn a lesson quickly. Bloody awful.

Milan - nothing to see or do (except the Duomo)

Taffeta Sat 17-Feb-18 08:30:26

I’ve not been to the beach resorts in Egypt but have been many times to Cairo, Luxor & Aswan.

Cairo is one of my favourite places on earth!
