Titanic Nominations
1. Worst Line in a Guidebook Our Provence author wrote bitterly about the number of “dollar-dripping dickheads” that she came across on the Côte d’Azur. Not sure who else she expected to come across in Cannes but in the old days we used to cherish such lines; nowadays people get offended by stuff like that.
2. Worst Drivers Definitely the Belgians, who also aspire to the worst roads in Europe. But
then everything in Belgium looks like it’s falling apart, which is part of the country’s charm.
3. Worst Menu Translation A restaurant in Greece offered “vagina” as one of the chef’s specialities. I declined to try it.
4. Worst Tourist Attraction This has to be the London Eye. Incredibly expensive, and not even a building but a fairground attraction. Other cities have more class. And better views.
5. Worst Hotel I have fond memories of the hotel in Hong Kong where I ended up locked in my own bathroom when the door handle came off in my hand. Or the hotel in Cairo where the beers our group ordered were served to us by prostitutes who fed us crisps – well, the guys anyway; they ignored the girls.
6. Worst Airline The service on most American Airlines makes Ryanair look like Concorde.
7. Worst Airport Well, it used to be JFK but that seems to have improved a bit so I guess I’d have to say Heathrow.

    You can keep your spray tan longer by using products that will not
    only preserve its color but also enhances it. The easier products to
    use are those that you rub into your skin. IMPORTANT:
    Make sure you are purchasing UV protective
    clothing that is put together and manufactured with strict AAD
    guidelines, you don.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But think about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of
    the greatest in its niche. Wonderful blog!
