    Albania is the bumhole of Europe.. Infrastructure-wise that is I mean.
    The people are great and I love it there though..

    My sister-in-law moved to Lagos last year, so for that, Portugal, I salute you.

    I’ve always disliked England. Well, not England, just the English. And not the ones that I’ve met who I liked, just the vocal majority.

    I have a reputation at work, which I uphold for lazy comedy effect, for hating Norwegians. But I love everyone really. Except the bloody English.

    I don’t like Nigeria either, but that’s only because some Nigerians keep promising to deposit money in my bank, and they never come through. Except it’s not in Europe.

    But what on earth is wrong with Ireland? I thought everyone liked Ireland?

    Nigeria, Somalia, Afghanistan for starters. I could go on but then I’d start to look like a certain figure in history who believed in the ubermensch.

    I spend a bit of time in Portugal so I’d disagree about that. They gave the world tea, coffee, Eusebio, vindaloo (its a corruption of the Portuguese for vinegar and garlic. However, the legal system is a ‘mare but not as bad as the impenetrable language they speak. The people are pretty feckless more or less. I like it all the same.

    Ireland, however… I dislike. Intensely.

    All is forgiven.

    Well it is two continents and a hemisphere away, but I suppose it could be mistaken for being in Europe.

    Quite like Portugal. It’s got a run-down tatty charm that’s lovely to visit.

    Wales, on the other hand, is responsible for don_simon πŸ™‚

    Oh, and the French.

    No, scratch that, just the Welsh…

    Oh OK, just the Spanish Welsh then..

    Portugal are our oldest allies in Europe and there’s a long history of Anglo-Portuguese families running the port trade.

    Great surfing too, just steer clear of the Algarve.

    Had a bad experince in Belgium when I was a kid. Some bearded 50 year old Belgian guy hit my 14 year old brother over the head with a pool cue in a dispute over who was playing next on a pool table in a youth hostel! Also had a nightmare when we drove down a one way road to have a picnic and came back to find they had dug the road up and we were blocked in. Ended up having to take some fence posts out!

    That and the whole Mark Dutroux thing have put me right off. I liked the look of Bruges in In Bruges though, and they do make great beer. πŸ™‚

    I would love to visit Portugal just to visit the Lines of Torres Vedras – anyone been?

    If it wasn’t for Portugal, there would have been no spice trade and hence, no curry!

    how good of the Portuguese to send spices to India so they could make curries to bring here centuries later.
    Greeks especially ones with gifts or called Phil oh and germans but only the royals.

    Portugal – gave us port and Piri Piri powder. What the hell more do you want?

    Wasn’t it Portugal that was the only place in Eurpe not to roll over to Napoleon and so give Wellington somewhere to land and kick off from?

    No gespacho; no Ouzo; no pizza; no pastries; no particular beer

    The Portuguese gave us ‘Carne de Vinha d’ Alhos’ – or Vindaloo as its more commonly known

    Am I the only one to irrationally, but quite vehemently, dislike another European country?

    Because Portugal does my head in. I mean, what have they given the rest of us other than a ridiculous legal system? No gespacho; no Ouzo; no pizza; no pastries; no particular beer; no scholarship; no decent music…the list could go on.

    Keep Lisbon for the history I say, but cut the rest off of the Iberian Peninsula and set it adrift in the Atlantic.

    So come on. What country do you think kind of sucks?

    Italy. I can’t stand all the Italians in Italy.

    Although bizarrely, every Italian I’ve ever known I’ve liked. It seems that they’re fine when they’re not in Italy, but complete arseholes when they’re at home.

    I’m an eighth Italian btw, so can’t be accused of racism.

    I like them less when they’re in London. On the occasions I’ve ventured to the Smoke, Italians always seem to be in the way, gathering at the bottom of a set of steps. Maybe it’s a national trait – is that something you’d do for an eighth of your time when in the capital?

    Portugal gave us cork; cork often seals wine so they are good people.

    My Dentist is from Portugal and she is a very good dentist and extremely pretty, so I now enjoy going to the dentist. Thanks Portugal, they also make a fine fortified wine πŸ˜€
