  • Favourite European country?

    I really love Portugal. Lisbon is a underrated capital (although it’s become much more popular over the last 10 years)

    Good food- Fish and pastries. Yum yum
    Bairro Alto is a cool neighbourhood. Belem too.

    Porto is a good second city. Beautiful, lots of bridges

    Algarve is nice for a beach holiday although not so much my thing

    Quieter than neighbouring Spain but I prefer the vibe

    EDIT please move to the lounge !

    I rate nations off their barroom banter and food

    UK, well Scottland and England at least, never been to Wales or NI so I can't say.

    Poland if just the mainland.

    I know Scottish and English food isn't meant to be so great and it's the Italians and French who get food brags all over the planet, but, those meat pies are dope actually.

    UK's humor and goodwill is world renown and doesn't disappoint. So long as you're not a dick to everyone, and maybe even if you are, you're gonna hear some good jokes and folks are going to show some concern for your visit. It's a nice place filled with good peoples.


    Poland probably doesn't want to hear this, but, they're a bit like Germany. Germany and Poland are not known for their banter like the English and Scotts are but Germany has got jokes, and Poland, they got the same kind of humor but with better food.

    Poland's got the best food in mainland Europe. Super underrated.

      I cant say Finland can I?


      Poland, i'll go with that. Proper European nation with a strong national identity. (Unlike Germany and the like who are america copycats, got nothing original)

      Hungary is a close second.

          We have a strong National identity here in the UK. We’ve been multicultural from the beginning. Anglo-Saxons, Celts, Normans, Romans and so on. If you want to talk about culture we have the best popular music in Europe. Punk is an English invention, think of all the fantastic bands we’ve had. We have amazing theatre, literature, art, film, documentaries.

          British comedy is brilliant. Top writers.


          I don’t know what you’re talking about to be honest.

              I thought Poland’s national dish was pickled turnips and with steamed goldfish. Never thought that it had a good cuisine !

                Red - I see. That's why you knew about Swede. What Polish dishes did you like?

                  I wouldn't call them polish dishes so much as Polized(?) but then again I have no ****ing clue the history of dishes. Like Americanized but for Poland. For example, pork chops isn't Polish is it? I dunno what they do to a breaded pork chop that's different, I'm sure it's just a different breading, but, that's some good ****.

                  Likewise, I've eaten potato pancakes my entire life too and I dunno what's different about them in Poland but the **** is good. I don't know who invented the potato-cake but I like them. Like a giant hashbrown.

                  Nothing in Polish food, that I chanced across anyway, seems all that different from our own so it's a bit hard to guess what's polish for me. To be fair, same is true for the UK. I don't know y'all made meat pies before us either. It's a safe guess in both cases because they're both old, but, I dunno.

                  Swede in poland? Turnip in england I think? Here we call it a rutabaga. Root-uh-beg-uh. I haven't the slightest clue where the veg originated from so calling rutabaga pie American is a bit of a jump, but so is calling it Polish. I dunno what it is. I know I ain't a big fan of the swede-turnip-rutabaga no matter what you call it though.

                  Normal ass **** as far as I'm concerned. steaks, pork chops, burgers, pizza's ****ing good in Poland too.

                  Where as if you want some ****ed up chicken wings or ****ty pizza go to Germany. Chocolate filled biscuits and ****. It's funny to me other dude said Germany was like America, nah, Poland is. Germany's a weird alien place where chicken wings come with some marmalade sauce or some such similar weird nonsense and the cheese on the pizza is some **** I ain't never tasted and ain't never gonna again. Polish pizza is dope though.

                  Best pizza I ever hard ever was in London though. Good as ****.
