This is a question Travel

I've had guns pointed at me in many different countries, sometimes even by our own side. I've also sat on my own on a beach on a desert island, which was nice because nobody was trying to shoot me. Tell us your tales of foreign travel.

Thanks to SnowytheRabbit for the suggestion

Go to France and order an English breakfast and they'll bring it to you.
Go to Holland and order an English breakfast and they'll bring it to you.
Go to Germany and order an English breakfast and they'll bring it to you.
Go to Ireland and order an English breakfast and you'll get a load of sarcastic remarks about "Dae ye not mean an Oirish breakfast?" and when it arrives it'll be horrible.

If you order an English Breakfast or an Irish Breakfast in Canada
you will get a Twinings tea bag and a cup of hot water.

That's because moose-fuckers are of porridge-wog stock. And therefore 'careful with money'.
As opposed to the French moose-fuckers. Who just hate the English.

I'm a big fan of the Canadian breakfast
Every so often I'll treat myself to bacon and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and whipped cream, it really is the king of starts to the day

(with a proper cup of tea, obviously)

None that involved 800 years of occupation, no.

Using those timescales the most of Europe and the whole of the 'new world' are under occupation.
