This is a question Summer Holidays

'We're all going on a summer holiday, and if you want to go yo Sven' rapped hip hop heavyweight MC Miker G - and it's as true today as it was way back in 1986. Holidays are a time for us to relax, unwind...and disgrace ourselves and our nations. Tell us about your best and worst holiday experiences. Again.

The time I went to Salou in the late eighties at the time they were dumping raw sewage onto the beach and sea. There were outbreaks of typhoid. At least one dead person found floating in hotel swimming pool. Giant rats inhabited the beach. It didn't help that I was with an utter twonk. For some reason that escapes me I decided to learn to windsurf. The horror of dunking into this sewage mess sped up the learning of the standing on the board bit no end. There was a certain corner in town refereed to as 'pooh corner'. I believe raw sewage was running down the streets. We arrived in a thunderstorm, it was pissing down most of the time and flooding. At the airport they were selling 'I was there in the scare' T shirts.

Fucking hell.
I've got 2 mates who have both just came back from Salou with their respective families.

I hope it's improved since then.

A quick goggle tells me it is still advisable to avoid Salou if rain is forecast. The sewerage pipes cannot deal with torrential rain. Makes you come home and appreciate the more mundane things like .. a decent sewerage system.

I went in 1999 with a then g/f. It was pretty decent by that time, the beaches clean and the facilities presentable.

However, on day three the town was hit by torrential rain, resulting in overflowing drains that drained, well, downward...

On day four, I went for a swim and spent the evening and most of the next day shouting at Ralph.
