I live in Barcelona, it's March 18th, and the yearly swarm of tourists has already arrived in full force and invaded the area around the Sagrada Familia. The invasion will last at least until September, and as someone who has to walk through the mass of people twice everyday when going to and coming back from university, this is annoying as all fucks.

I don't even get the appeal of that thing, I mean, it's stilll under construction and there's cranes and scaffoldings and shit all around it, and I don't think it's THAT beautiful, but whatever.

I myself have visited various cities and been in this situation as a tourist, so I'm sure people from those cities feel the same as I do now. Do you have this kind of problem where you live?

Tourists come to York all the time to find out how we used to live 1500 years ago.

I'll save you the trip: it was a shithole then and it's a shithole now.

To be fair we do get a lot of scientists, they come to study the town centre which is occupied by the escaped results of leaving a petri-dish of shit and fake tracksuits out in the sun until it multiplies enough to sleep with it's cousin.

Why the hell would a tourist come here?

The Sagrada Familia is a truly hideous building. There's just too damn much going on.

And what the hell's taking so long? In the past ten years we've built a tower half a mile high in Dubai and put a rover the size of the Mystery Machine on Mars. These lazy Spaniards have been working on this for over 130 years, and it's still got at least another 10 to go!

apearantly they build it through the donations that people leave there... and they want it to be finished around 2026. the parts that are finished now are in need of renovation already...

We have the same, only they get the better jobs for less pay and that leaves the dutchies without a job.
Also they steal our job.

Since being at Uni (last september) I don't think two days have gone by when a coach full of people hasn't arrived, ushering camera-wielding tourists to the Cathedral. They were coming during the snow for god sakes, well, quite.

The only bloody buses that run in the snow are the ones bringing us more bleeding tourists too. Typical.

I live in Harrogate.

Full of tourists. It's brilliant watching them queue in the snow for an hour waiting to get in to Betty's to pay £5 for a cup of tea.

Douchebags.

Just have a blurred Enrique, or go old school so only me and you will know who it is.

You tryna tell me a Biscan, Mellor or Le Tallec avatar wouldn't be great? Maybe even throw Cheyrou in to the mix.

EDIT: Not really old school, but you get my drift. Back in our old days.

Yeah, too bad that's not how it really looks

After 21 years of seeing it almost everyday it's just like any other building to me.

Belfast is full of old Americans who think they're really Irish so the roads are clogged with tour buses which randomly stop because they're all incontinent. Although its funny to watch them walk around Queens University looking really confused because everyone is Chinese

Neil Mellor? Christ, that takes me back to the single thing he did. That last minute screamer against Arsenal. I'll see what I can whip up.

Most of the tourists steer clear of here until the students all leave in the summer, but then they descend like the plague.

Yup it's crawling with tourists year round.

And it makes me sad when they ask me if I've been to the infinity pool and I haven't because you have to pay for a room in the hotel it's in as well, which is 1000s of $ if you manage to get a room at all.

AND they don't know how to walk on escalators which is really annoying. Oh it was funny though, there were a few taking pics of my apartment a couple of weeks ago. It's nothing special.

I live in London and my route to university takes me past King's Cross station (ie, where the Eurostar regularly vomits up slow-walking groups of tourists with wheeled suitcases dragging behind them) every day at peak times. I regularly plot mass murder.

For some reason, when I go to Glasgow during the summer it's full of Germans. No joke. I don't even know why. I've never heard any Germans saying that they want to go to Glasgow. I mean, it's not that pretty. It's not dead ugly either, but...why?

I blame Braveheart. But why am I complaining? Tourists dish out money.
