    Currywurst > Trout. Well done on the Weiner schnitzel though, they are delicious.

    Is that because you're more likely to play us or Holland than Austria? We care more about France and Germany than Scotland or Wales, but rugby fans seem to want to beat Scotland more than France.

    When I went to Amsterdam I was trying to find my hotel with some Americans, some guy on a motorbike saw we were lost and stopped to help us, this American woman said "sorry I don't speak German" and he showed her on the map how to get to her hotel, when he asked me where I was staying he said "I'm Dutch, not German. And I sent her the wrong way."

    Nothing, it just (more than) makes up for the trout in your cuisine.

    That's a big mistake to make like asking a Canadian if he is American..

    Not as big a mistake as when I came back (via Eurostar).
    American: "Why don't we have Dutch passport control?"
    Brit: "Because we're in Belgium"

    Really? You are the definition of ignorant. It's stubborness like this that make you look very childish. "Nobody likes you and your country" , funniest thing I have ever heard. I don't usually let things like this get to me but that sentence shows your level of maturity. Grow up.

    People ignorance is great...

    My company sells taxes for Benelux truck tolls as a service to international hauliers.

    Driver; I have been arrested by the French Police because I didn't buy my Belgium tax..

    Me: The French police doesn't do any check on the Benelux road tax because it has nothing to do with it..

    Driver: It was the French police and they were speaking French to each other..

    Me: They were Belgium Wallon policemen..

    Driver; No ,they were French..

    I decided to agree with him because it would have been too long to explain geopolitics to that idiot..

    As I was born and raised in Norway, I agree wholeheartedly. The tourist of German descent is the worst of its kind. (Zumindest der gemeine Deutsche.) But that does not matter. Why bring it up? There is no rivalry, if one side is not aware of any competition. But you and the Austrian press are of course free to tilt at windmills as long as you want to.


    Stor klem,

    German tourists tend to be tight...

    They do not like to spend their euros ..

    That's the main complaint I have heard about them in my youth..
