You are insane. Paris is more beautiful than any city in North America, BY FAR. Thieves in Paris are dwarfed by the large swamps of homeless crackheads in San Francisco.

I thought convincing people of the greatness of your idea of vacation was the whole point of your post.

I never claimed to decide what people should enjoy. I clearly stated that you would never convince ME that a trip like that would be fun. I went on to insinuate that most people would probably feel the same.

You claim it was just the two of you enjoying food, wine and people, whilst your schedule shows that you probably spent more time enjoying traveling from place to place.

Oh, you got me there. Your () so smart.

Anyone who would have the audacity to tell others what they should enjoy should be ignored. Your attitude is beyond laughable. It's self centered and selfish. Your superiority complex is probably a cover up for your insecurity.
I don't recall telling anyone that Paris > Disneyland or that the Mona Lisa > a Strip Club. On the other hand since you bring it up, if you polled 100 people exactly how many would pick Disneyland if offered a free trip to Europe for 5 days or a free 2 day trip to Disneyland? 1? 2?

As far as telling others what should be enjoyed, if you would refer to the OPs first post then you would find this question.

Is 13 days too ambitious to see all the sights of these cities.
My post directed at the OP was in direct response to that question. As for the part of my post directed at you, we already clarified that I never claimed to decide what you or anyone else should enjoy. In fact you were the one who originally opted to not direct your reply to the OP but towards another poster to disagree with their idea of vacation. Then in your next post went on to post how strange other posters opinions about travel were, which strongly insinuates the person you previously replied to. And honestly kind of makes you guilty of the very same things you accuse me of.

So my friend, why don't you pump your brakes a little, go back and realize that I was merely disagreeing with you. If you can't handle that then maybe you should rethink posting stuff on the internet.

You have to admit though, saying you would be bored to tears with 5 days in Rome is ludicrous.
