When you’re travelling a lot, especially to cities, you come across some places you just don’t like. It’s nothing against these one and I’m sure others love them. For me it’s just, when I get somewhere I either love it there or I don’t like it. There’s nothing in between.
I think me not liking Riga so much has a lot to do with the circumstances we had there. We were couchsurfing, and honestly the guy was just somehow off. I never felt good the time I spent there with him. We just didn’t get along and I projected that somehow to this city. Maybe I’ll give it someday another shot.
Everyone loves Cork. It’s the second biggest city in Ireland and yes, it does have beautiful places, but honestly? For me it was more like a dirty industrial city. Waterford was so much more beautiful than Cork.
Ok, this one will probably no one get, but I just didn’t like it there. I mean, the Grote Markt is really beautiful, but that’s it for me. Ok, and the Atomium is also pretty cool, but the rest? Nah, I didn’t like it that much. It was just…. I don’t know I felt like the whole lot of Europe was pushed into one city. It was just too much.
Zagreb… that’s a pretty complicated topic. First of all, we had shitty weather. And you know, shitty weather always makes a city more ugly than it really is. Arriving there at the bus station (never saw such an ugly thing) in rain and being super cold.. yeah no. There are some nice spots in Zagreb, I’m sure of it. It just wasn’t like this „Wow, I’m in Zagreb now“-feeling like I have in other cities.
