  • Resorts
  • Food
  • Historical Sites
  • Nice good peaceful living
  • Healthy living environments.
  • Diving
  • Sailing
  • Junkanoo Festivals/Carnival
  • Dolphins, Sting Rays, Different Group of Fish
  • Culture.
  • Education
  • Diversity
  • Landscape
  • Sports

Dislikes:

  • Homelessness (this needs to be dealt with…)
  • Shanty Towns
  • Unhealthy living conditions within the neighborhoods (like they don’t even care about picking up trash, plus I hate it when they don’t put a leash on their dogs.)
  • Drivers (listen, some Bahamians are terrible drivers, some don’t know what it means to slow down and be god damn patient, and that’s why we have a lot of accidents over here…
  • Horse Carriages (tbh, I don’t think we need to have tourist riding on carriages and horses are moving the carriage, because I find it animal abuse, I don’t know if they do take care of the horses here, it’s still animal abuse to me, because of the heat over here. They could at least use ride in taxis/buses.
  • Government & Crime
  • Snakes, Frogs, Centitpeds, Sharksetc.
  • Prices that are high.
  • Hurricanes

I live in Germany. :de:

Likes:
Culture
Education (everyone gets education. Even universities aren’t expensive)
Literature
Landscapes
Cities
Our diectness (we usually don’t beat around the bush)
Our cars :joy: :joy:
Diversity
Food
Shops and grocery store
Health insurance
Environment
Language (and no, we don’t sound tough and aggressive)

Dislikes:
Weather (I haven’t had a real winter in years, at least in the region where I live. And the summer in Germany is disgustingly hot. cough climate change cough)
The law (In general, the law isn’t bad but sometimes, the convictions are too harmless, in my opinion. And when it comes to money, then you serve a severe sentence…)
High taxes
Neo-Nazis (disgusting :face_vomiting: :face_vomiting: :face_vomiting: )
Racism & anti-Semitism (Even it’s an international issue, the government doesn’t take it seriously and the punishment is a damn joke)
And of course, our dark history…

I’m sure there are more, but I can’t think of anything at the moment. :slight_smile: Maybe I will add more points later.

Hahah Ich glaube das wird sich nie ändern. :joy:

And don’t forget solidarity tax. We pay it since 30 years. I think it’s enough :joy:

(For those who do not know: since the GDR no longer exists, all federal states that didn’t belong to the GDR have to pay the solidarity surcharge to the former GDR for reconstruction.)

I won’t go into detail about my country because there are so many things to be said but my country is Wales but I am going to add in England as well because Wales mainly follow under England’s command.

Likes
•Unique culture & language (Wales)
•First world countries (both)
•Freedom of speech (both)
•Countryside & cities are beautiful! (both)
•Portion sizes are healthy (both)
•Mental & psychical health is always advertised everywhere. (both)
•The amount of people who are accepting of everyone is amazing!! (both)

Dislikes
•The government. (England)
•The fact that everyone pretends Coronavirus is gone. (both)
•The media outlets are owned by racists who predominantly show biased news. (both)
•Bullying is very common. (both)
•Slurs are normalised here and some slurs that have come to my attention lately (through episode accounts) I would have never thought they were slurs because of how commonly they are used which is very disappointing. (both)
•Poverty. (both but more so England)
•The fact that rich people can walk into good education and become prime minister just because of their family’s fortune.

Greece

Likes:

  • Free healthcare
  • Free education including university
  • Hospitality
  • Great climate
  • Resorts/ beaches/ seas
  • Food (at least for me haha)
  • Islands (soo many)

Dislikes:

  • Government.
  • People getting in heated arguments about political parties way too many times. If you wanna stay on a stranger’s good side do not mention what political party you are in.
  • Underage drinking and smoking. And I’m not talking about under 18s. You can go to the supermarket and buy whiskey even if you are 12. You can buy cigarettes from whatever age your parents let you go out by yourself in the store (in Greece usually over 12) Source: Me! 🤦 In the last 3 years they changed the law about gambling shops. No under 18s are allowed inside but many cities are ignoring this.
  • We have some really good alcohol but also very deadly. (it’s called Ouzo. if you drink a lot of it without water it could kill you.)
  • Education system. We have a lot of after-schoo lessons about subjects we do in school. Why you ask? Because public school doesn’t do a good job teaching you stuff. Meaning teachers will do the lesson for 45 minutes, you as a student didn’t understand it. You ask them to explain it better they’ll just go on and on saying the exact same thing for another 45 minutes. So your parents are forced to pay other teachers that have their own “private schools” so you can learn better language skills / maths.
  • Racism. (every kind homophobic, race etc.)

I live in Canada and I like almost everything about it. In my nine years living here I’ve met mostly very pleasant and kind people. Food is not that bad. Also I’m able to play games https://rocketpayz.com/fr/casino-depot-a-1/ online (which is a good thing for me because I like to do something on my way to and from work). Laws and healthcare are much better than almost anywhere in the world. But the main concern for me is to have good people around me and I have that here.
