The reason the Brits love their ..... "holidays" .... so much; they can't wait to get the hell out of there.
The reason the Brits are such "World Class Experts", on everything ... tis' so miserable there all you can do is sit in and read, and read, and read .... ad naseum. They don't "do" much, but they have read every book about it!
But, as a frenchman, I must say that the alps are filled with skiers and mountaineer from the UK that kick serious ass ! They are serious 'doers'...
Actualy, they praticaly invented modern mountaineering, not so bad for such a flat country !
Anyway, we're all european now.
Aren't we ?
