Re: Family Friendly Countries.

I used to like when the UK was desperately unfriendly to children in many areas* - it was a sad day when kids were allowed in pubs, what was wrong with sitting outside in the cold with a bottle of pop?

fuck no, your brat can't colour in my racing post


* being more serious, we are very family unfriendly when it comes to children compared to the rest of Europe.

You are young, healthy, unattached. Go abroad for a while! Working holidays are great and you won't dig into your savings too much. You'll never regret it.
So much easier said than done. I'm lucky if I can get two days off in a row, let alone a vacation overseas.

Plus someone would need to watch my cat.

Bring the cat with you. Instant conversation starter, keeps you warm in the cold weather, and can hunt something for you in case you are short on food money.

The last time I tried to get my cat into her carrier, it required three people. She does not travel well.

That's one of the things I like about Britain.

(I hate kids.)
