My passport expires this year and I don’t know if I can be arsed to replace it. I don’t fly without
an essential reason anymore and you might as well have ‘Twat’ tattooed on the forehead being English on the Continent.
'sfunny but my only holiday is my usual annual trip to Paris to accompany a friend who is an avowed Francophile (he even has a decoder for Fransat/TNTSat at home). We stay in the same family-owned hotel each year and it has become almost a home from home to us - to the extent we got a lot of leg-pulling last year over Brexit and "Monsieur Johnson". I expect it to be worse this year
Thing is... because we don't behave like twats we get on just fine and the locals, in whose country we are a guest, are just fine with us and very welcoming. This year we have a real treat on the itinerary, one which I'm looking forward to greatly; already correspondence with the destination concerned has indicated we'll be made very welcome.
