I Hate Tourist

Tourist, while a necessary evil in the the scheme of cash flow...are a horde of locust.

Everything that makes it easy to be a tourist, is also part of the problem.

Guide books, are written for just about every destination a soul could imagine itself going to.
The problem is that, these guides become tightropes, which must be walked along...A maze with only one path.

Masses of people  line up in front of buildings,monument and locations, all holding their personal copies of Lonely Planet or Frommer's.
All carrying the trademark tourist DSLR camera, that makes them an easy target.

Their footsteps quickly kill grass as they shuffle around
They crowding the area with annoying banter and confusion.
The click and flash of multiple cameras constantly goes off as everyone jockeys for the best position to get that "once in a lifetime" shot.
They will toss their gum and trash wherever they please, with no remorse.

They will create a market for hustlers and shady individuals to come out of the woodwork and sell  useless and overpriced trinkets and memorabilia.
Many of them will be scammed out of their money by a man or woman with a smile on their face.

They will rarely understand or speak the language, and often won't make an attempt.
They question their lack of success and claim the locals are simply unfriendly.



Every country has its own signature stereotype.
Israelis, will try to swindle and bargain you out of your shoes.
Asians, will arrive by the busload, taking pictures non-stop while tossing the peace sign in every frame.
American and British, will battle to be the loudest and fattest people in the area. 
Irish and Welsh, will sniff the nearest pub to get plastered in.
Americans, will also win the award for most arrogant and worst dressed.
Germans, show up not showered and rude...before heading to the nearest beach. 


Tourist


The list goes on...

Locations that were unknown in the past have been absolutely ruined monetarily, socially, and culturally, because of  tourism.

Berlin - The city of war and reunification, has now been turned into the world hipster meeting place.

Riga - An exotic Baltic location is now overrun with drunk men on bachelor parties, prostitutes and scam artist. Mini Documentary

Vang Vieng - A quiet river city, overrun by drunken backpackers, tubing down the river to the point of government intervention. Mini Documentary

Every "tourist" location has or will be ruined.

Nothing can stop it.

You can scout a new location, and visit new places..but one day down the road..it too will be overrun.

The only thing to do is... find a location beautiful and untouched.

...And be there first.

Don't be a tourist. 

Be a traveler.

  4. The family had developed their Canelo vs ggg live fight country's finest two amateur boxers, twins trained in self-defence by their elder brothers during a war-torn upbringing. Only one could represent Kazakhstan at the 2004 Olympics and their parents, disregarding the younger twin's superiority, chose the eldest solely based on age.

    Max Golovkin's boxing career ended with that decision. Aged 22, he was the best prospect in Kazakhstan and won every https://canelovsggglivefight.net tournament he entered - unless he stepped aside for his twin to share the limelight. That twin, Gennady, was now heading to the Olympics armed with just a handful of Max's in-ring ability.

    Karaganda, in local tongue, translates as "black city". The coal industry in Kazakhstan's fourth-largest city provided a humble Canelo vs ggg income for locals but, under Soviet rule, also meant the area was exploited for what little it was worth. A nearby military base meant the people of Karaganda had two choices for employment - the mines or the army.

    Is everyone in Karaganda bred tough? "Yes, absolutely," Gennady Golovkin exclusively told Sky Sports. "I like the people https://canelovsggg.wiki of Karaganda. People are smart, they are true people - not fake."His father was a miner but his two elder brothers joined the army.

    Vadim and Sergey taught their younger, twin brothers how to defend themselves with their fists - Gennady and Max became a handful buoyed by a fascination with late-night American boxing, idolising Sugar Canelo vs Golovkin Ray Robinson.Vadim and Sergey died in action in the early-1990s with no explanation offered for their disappearance. Gennady and Max, now the elder statesmen in the family, took their fighting skills to amateur boxing tournaments across Eastern Europe.

    "He was very good, he was much better than me," Gennady remembered of his twin. Some claim, considering Gennady had 350 https://canelovgolovkin.wiki amateur bouts and lost just five. Just before the Olympic Games he said 'okay, maybe you try first'," Gennady recalled. "I said 'no, I'll try second'." The 2004 Games in Athens provided the Golovkin twins with bigger worries than nearly one thousand combined previous opponents.

  13. "This photo is perfect except for background which is...". Well, let's say "bad". Have you ever thought like that? Probably, you even made an attempt or two to edit the picture with the ruined Photo Background Editor, to no avail. Surely, not all of us are designers or at least IT savvy. So, here is a way for the rest of humanity to change the back scene of any photograph – the Photo Scissors online tool.
