It's all subjective mate and one man's meat is another man's poison. We go on vacation for Sun Sea and Sangria and have little to no interest in the socio economic climate of its inhabitants or it's associated history. It never made me any more happier visiting chicken itching in Mexico in fact it stole a full day of our holiday because it's just a triangular ruin in the middle of nowhere. Horses for courses though because it we want to imbibe of culture then we choose a destination fitting the bill like Rome shrouded in amphitheatres mystery and great treasures. But 95% of our jollies are only for time out and fun in the sun with agua aerobics a game of bools, killer pool, quizzes, singers and dancing. Also sunbathing but only for short periods as lying on a bed at gas mark 5 can get seriously boring. Going for nice long walks along a promenade and having drinks in a pretty harbour side bar. Meeting new pals from around the globe and interacting with like minded people. But travelling out to a remote village to imbibe with the locals would be a no no and anyway if you asked them then they would probably to a man like to get out of the village and come back ours to chill out . Early night tonight and ready for kip as tomorrow is our trip day...good grief !
