Like Reading Porn In Public

I have come to the conclusion that reading a tourist guidebook whilst out and about in town makes me feel as dirty as I imagine I would feel if I were to have a porno spread open in the middle of town.

And frankly when I do have to resort to reading a guidebook in public – I do it as discreetly as possible so that people won’t actually realise that’s what I’m doing.

Guidebooks need to come with disguised dustcovers.

Tourist places need less tourists – they make a picturesque surrounding seem ugly and gaudy.

Ironic seeing as I, myself, am a tourist.

    I hear ya, but sometimes it’s inescapable. Like taking photos of the eiffel tower. Not like the world needs another photo of it… but we stood there like tourists and did it anyway. (I just checked – flickr has 47,681 photos tagged “eiffel tower”!)

    I can relate. I really can.
