This is a question Brits Abroad

Union jack shorts, bulldog t-shirts, bars named after soap operas, hen parties in Malaga. Tell us about your encounters with the worst (or best) of our fair country's travelers around the world. Alternatively, tell us about your own doomed quest to find a decent cup of tea in Moscow.

We sit in bar with no roof, whilst thumping house music is pumped out at deafening volume. So loud you can barely hear yourself think, let alone actually have a conversation with the person next to you. Simultaneously episodes of Peter Kay Live or Fools and Horses are played in a loop on a gigantic TV screen. Not that you can actually here what is being said, the music does for that. Outside a child is fast asleep in a buggy. We stare into our drinks and say nothing.

People do this for pleasure?

Ooh, get you!
Perhaps people do this for the weather, rather than cultural enlightenment.

After all, if your whole life is working in a factory packing hotel-sized soaps into boxes then you might just want to go away for a week and party, without too much of an challenge to your general way of life.

But the point is they weren't having fun
I have no objection to bars with no roof, thumping house music or Fools and Horses for that matter, it's just the sensory overload of all of these things together that I object to. If I want to listen to house music I'll go to a club and boogie the night away, if I want to watch Fools and Horses i'll do so in the comfort of my own living room and if I want to chat to my mates I'd like to at least be able to hear what they are saying. On the other hand.... The Proles really are ghastly! Bring back the Work House I say!

I agree more workhouses. Lot of empty property in Spain they can all be shipped off there.

So you went to a place with loud thumping music, when you don't actually like loud thumping music,
and you look down on all the people who went to the place when they do like it, and it doesn't occur to you that you're the total cunt in the equation?

Tip: You're the total cunt in the equation.

Glad to have helped.
