Retired Bloke Quote

“Of all noxious animals, too, the most noxious is a tourist. And of all tourists the most vulgar, ill-bred, offensive and loathsome is the British tourist.”

Francis Kilvert 1840-79, English clergyman and diarist

(But I’m still looking forward to touring southern Italy next week. Sorry, Reverend.)
