The Tourists Are Thick

Monday, July 15, 2013

I guess I should say "the tourists are numerous", but honestly it could go both ways... America is very well fed.... and it loves to vacation near my house.... the weekends always produce traffic jams and lots of people...

A few quotes on Tourists:
Yeah, I had an idea to make a very scary movie, based on a kind of serial murderer that preys on tourists.
Brian De Palma

In the middle ages people were tourists because of their religion, whereas now they are tourists because tourism is their religion.
Robert Runcie

Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going.
Paul Theroux

Since both its national products, snow and chocolate, melt, the cuckoo clock was invented solely in order to give tourists something solid to remember it by.

Alan Coren

    Live in London so thousands of tourists here. My own travelling days are over, I have lost the travelling bug completely. I watch a tv programme called The Idiot Abroad , which I find very funny, and I identify pretty strongly with all most of what he says.

    I'd rather investigate a place than just tick it off on my inventory. Most people don't even know what's on their doorstep. How sad is that?

  i'd rather be a traveler than a tourist. travelers go places, tourists just look at them.
