Some trips are simply superior. It is not a matter of the "need to feel superior".
I would think that someone visiting Florida from Italy would think your example as ridiculous as I do. Why do you think Italy is "simply superior" to Florida? Because YOU happen to prefer one over the other? What are you basing your opinion on to begin with?

I like to fish, and used to go to Florida every winter to do so, especially during the pompano run. As far as Italy goes, I have never heard of anyone choosing it as a sport fishing destination. See how Florida is "simply superior" to Italy depending on your perspective?

Getting back to my original point, it is obvious that you feel the need to differentiate for exactly the reasons I stated.

Child, please. People wear wedding rings as a symbol of the vows they made to each other and to show that they are committed to each other. Do you really need someone to explain this to you???

I happen to hate Florida. It's flat, boring, and way too hot for most of the year. Even its endless coastline and warm waters are of little appeal to me, having come from SoCal and Hawaii. But that's just me. I know lot of people who love Florida for many of the same reasons. There are plenty of people from Europe and other international destinations who see it as an ideal vacation, especially in the winter. I don't understand why, but I'm happy that not everyone has the same preferences I do because it means I can enjoy my own favorite spots in relative solitude.
