"the poll characterized as impolite, prone to loud carping and inattentive to local customs? If so, that's just the start: the study also describes the voyageur français as often unwilling or unable to communicate in foreign languages, and particularly disinclined to spending money when they don't have to — including on those non compris tips. Over all, French travelers landed 19th out of 21 nations worldwide, far behind the first-place Japanese, considered most polite, quiet and tidy. Following the Japanese as most-liked tourists were the Germans, British and Canadians. Americans finished in 11th place alongside the Thais."
To funny :-)
could this be called profiling ?

June and July ...right about now, is the season we have the European travelers. If I had to give one common characteristic of the Europeans it would be topless sun bathing women....and thats not a complaint :-)

Baron Bliss is considered the ideal tourist in Belize. He arrived...got sick...died...and left the Country of Belize all his money. The good Baron never got off the boat...gratiful for the hospitality he received.
