I know that tourism is very valuable to cities but as a resident of a popular tourist city it can get a little tiresome when the city is full of tourists who seem to have not experienced humans en masse before. Every summer I find myself grumbling under my breath when yet another tourist has knocked me heavily with their giant ‘day’pack, stopped dead in front of me as they suddenly look at their phone or take a photo with an iPad. I become what the Brits would fondly call Victor Meldrew so I thought why not take the grumbling to a new level and write about it on The Huffington Post! Just to say I do practice what I preach when a guest in another city!
On another note about the summer, the school holidays started here on Friday and my son proudly finished Year 1 with a great school report and sense of tiredness. We have six weeks off and plan to relax as much as possible (I’ll still be taking relocation clients during this time so do get in touch if you need to) but I will be popping up here on the blog as and when the whim takes me. I’ll return to regular posting in August.
