    If you're talking about the Australian tourists in Southeast Asia, you're 100% correct. Disgusting, horrible, evil tourists. My Indonesian and Thai friends can't even go to the beaches there anymore.

    Tourists from New Zealand are generally nice and civilized though.

    It's funny how the worst tourists are the "main" Anglo countries (English, Australians, Americans) while their less popular but similar neighbors (Irish, Canadians, Kiwis) are a lot friendlier and generally more pleasant to be around

    Croatia has to win this. It's now or never best squad they will probably ever have. France can afford a lose

    I said if they win. He would ha a WC and Europa title in one season and have been in too form all year. I see that as a good shot at the Bd’OR

    With all that pressure resting on their shoulders? Gotta disagree that they can afford to lose especially coming off that Euro final L at home.

    They've got unfinished business and the expectation back home before the WC has always been win it all or bust.

    It'd be amazing if Croatia won their first one but man,there'd be a meltdown in France :lol:

    You already saw how hyped they were off the back of just making it to the final,could see that becoming riots if they take the L

    Could you imagine if it was Sterling who was in that position and bottled the chance?

    Its probably gonna be the first time a golden boot winner has had a mediocre tourney overall

    He was hurt often last season if I'm not mistake,apparently he's got D-Wade knees

    Torino really should've cashed in when they were getting big offers after the season he had 2 seasons back

    My dad said it's one of the most beautiful (and cheapest) countries he's ever been to. He's a very tan Middle Eastern/Latino looking dude, and he and his Indian/Middle Eastern friends all said the locals were pretty friendly to them (but could be just because they were in the major tourist areas). Had to point that out because "Will the locals start @#$@ with me cause of how I look?" is one of the first things I think of whenever I visit a city/country in Europe

    Yea I was gonna ask if you hadn't mentioned it :lol:

    It first came on my radar a few years back after I learned that Game of Thrones films all their Kings Landing scenes there and after looking it up, it definitely seems like a beautiful country and the lower cost is another big plus. Good looks

    Been contemplating visiting on my next trip to Europe.

    My dad and his friends stayed in Dubrovnik. It's basically the Amalfi Coast of Croatia

    I'd say go sooner than later before it becomes a tourist trap area. A bunch of douchey people I knew in college have been doing those "yacht week booze cruises" there over the past year or two :sick: so I guess it's slowly catching on as a major tourist destination (it's always been a destination for Europeans but has been relatively safe from Americans and English so far)

    Me and my buddies were looking into doing one of those in Croatia.

    Guess I’m a douche.

    Oh well, there are worse things to be in life (Manchester United/formerly Real Madrid/maybe Juvenus supporter)
