Question of the Day

The cranky traveler…

What’s the one place or country that everyone says you must see that you found to be a big disappointment once you got there?

Disneyland. After all the hype on TV and stuff, I finally went when I was in California. It was small — smaller than Cedar Point, which was the amusement park I grew up with — garish, and, at the same time, a bit worn and tattered around the edges. The same was true of Disney World, except it was hugely overpriced. I don’t know how people with kids can afford it.
