Fun with maps, again

"How gay men see Europe", at least according to Alphadesigner.
Highly stereotypical and way too generalistic. Scotland should be "kilts", Denmark should be vikings or B&O, Sweden Ikea of course and Finland Nokia - or Tom Land. I love the Slovak and Hungarian labels but France is hardly twinkville. There is more to the Germans than dungeons and more to the English than saunas. But Russia is spot on.
And what about the low countries? Waffles and hash? They have obviously never visited.

The Netherlands have legal drugs and together with Belgium, and further down Spain, you can get legally married with your same-sex partner. Of course hash and waffles are nice too.

Did you notice Luxembourg is not noticed? Happens a lot in Europe!

Luxembourg has lots of interesting things, including a great local history museum.

he he!...i like 'Europe According to Britain', pretty much sums up the general opinion...suggesting that we are 'in' Europe, or 'part of' Europe can really offend some people...
