But I agree.

Tourism is shit.

Its ok on a small scale for pin money.

But trying to base an economy on it is fucking nuts as its fuckignseaosnal and creates more costs thnn it geenrates.

The only people that actually like tourists are those who directly profit from them: central government, accommodation owners, cafe owners and peddlers of tailored tat:

Which is a tiny number, normally local councillors.

That's dire; I've seen Padstow like that.

A weekend walk happened to take me through Rock which is across the estuary from Padstow.

The reason for its popularity escapes me. It reminds me of some US seaside resorts where you have big expensive rented houses but step outside the front door and it's really grotty. The only genuinely nice thing about it is the view towards Padstow but there are plenty of nice views in Cornwall.

It seems to be a joke played upon rich people like Gordon Ramsay, "Oh darling you simply must buy a house in Rock, it's quite the place to be."

All the houses up on west cliff, when the owner dies, they are being turned into glass fronted mansions by incomers with bags of moneys

I think maybe we are straying towards commercialisation rather than tourism. 

Am I tourist when on a bank holiday I walk the top of Cheddar and see thirty people in total although the thousands fill the car parks and the shop area rammed with people and they queue to pay to get in the Caves and see the cheese being made.

Or Castleton where my last visit happened to be on a bank holiday and as we walked down the high street we had to walk in the road because there were so many people buying trinkets and having tea and a cake in the cafes. We had to walk that way to start our hike up Secret Valley and out along the hills. We saw about 20 more people in the rest of the hike. The contrast was shocking.

Ditto Rock though nobody would ever consider living full time in these flat white boxes with windows.

For those of you who don't know the "delights" of Rock well here it is. One short falling apart concrete "prom" with steps down to a gritty foreshore on the estuary.

That, apart from the nice view, is it.

Behind those white houses on the right are more white houses and they continue back up the road.

There really is nothing there but new built houses and tourists renting them wandering up and down trying to find something to do before realising that the only thing to do is to take the ferry across to Padstow which, crowded as it is, does have a harbour, pubs, shops, chippies, cinema, restaurants. Rock in contrast has a village stores, an estate agent and a holiday lets shop. It really is dire.

Yes you don’t have to go far. The other secret is going somewhere, where the great unwashed would need to walk.

I would rather say: mass tourism. Which, like mass immigration, is hugely damaging.

Nobody minds the occasional well-behaved tourist or immigrant for that matter.

It's the Social media effect. People want to show others that they are LIVING the LIFE!

The number of tourists visiting the Netherlands is expected to grow by 50 per cent in the next decade, from 19 million to 29 million, the document predicts.

 

So it predicts more people travelling by plane - it's pricing in that Extinction Rebellion will utterly fail in it's message.

Ehitby gets hordes of fucking motor homes -or it did. Parking rules have been revised because of those cunts.

You get letters from MrnMrs Motorhome claiming 'we visited Whitby. We must have spent at least £2000 eating out and in shops'

Except when I walk into town, past the street - and thats the best way to describe them - of motorhomes, they are all sat on their fucking steps or picnic tables making sandwiches from cheap bread and filling and pouring their piss buckets down the drain.

If more people were conservative - I believe conservative people don't do selfies, then less people would travel to these places just to show they are living the life.

But Holland needs tourists to fill the void left by all their Somalians that have moved to Britain. Thank you Holland! How about you take all your scum back before moaning about tourists.

This would make a great case study for countries that want to mimic this success and rake in that cash from tourists.

1. Have some sort of iconic destination - Windmills, Tulips, Pleasant capital city.

2. Invest heavily in social media campaigns. If necessary use paid actors with many selfies, swamp Facebook, Instagram etc, living the high life.

3. Jack up the prices for flights, accommodation etc. 

BOOM!
