The cliche of the drunken Englishman causing a ruckus in Greece or Spain seems to have gotten worse.
This report from The New York Times shows that more and more Britons traveling abroad are getting into trouble.
It surprises me that the resort owners quoted in this article would blatantly finger people from the UK as the culprits. I personally think that people from all over the world can display the rowdy behaviour described in this article. I’d like to see a lot more statistical information and a lot less anecdotal information.
A government authored report says that 602 Britons were hospitalized in Greece, and 1,591 died in Spain, but these numbers are not compared to any other numbers from other countries. They also don’t take into account how many British people travel in total to these places, compared to people who come from other countries.
What do you think? Are British travelers the most rowdy?
Let me know in the TravelPod travel forums,
