What do Expats Really Think About Tourists?

There is, let’s be honest, a certain kind of snobbery in some parts when you mention the word tourist.

British tourists in particular aren’t getting a very good press just now, as Jack mentioned, and so ably rebutted, last week. British OAPs (and I am one!) may now be infamous in the Canary Islands, and the younger crowd may have damaged their own reputations more than that of the island of Mallorca.

Yes, as a British expat, I am sometimes embarrassed by these tales, yet, as a friend (not British) pointed out to me, these stories become newsworthy precisely because they are not the norm.
