I dont get the pool one. Every Canadian I know uses Celcius in the pool too. 32 is too warm, 24 too cool. 27-28 is perfect, IMO.

Distance is wrong too. No one uses metric for short, non work related distances. If you’re measuring for a garden bed for example it’s feet never meters

Question should be: Are you buying lumber?

I won't ask about the water pressure in Athens or Jerusalem:

 

 

As funny as this will sound, the water pressure was outstanding. Thats right, I said water pressure. You see Victoria is very very old, it has been ripped up and torn down. The majority of Hotels in Victoria have poor water pressure, similair to someone peeing on you.

Chateau Victoria is cold:

 

 

The hotel is clean, pretty well appointed but our room was cold. The thermostat was set at 17’C when we arrived so we turned it up to 21’ then went out for the evening.

Parkside is very cold:

 

 

The worst hotel experience of my life. My kids and I froze. It is winter (5C). ALL 3 heaters in my room are mot turning on. In the new room they moved us to, 2 heaters are not turning on (both in the bedrooms). I am sleeping on the bathroom floor with an area heater. 3 technicians have been to my rooms in 7 hours. I am using my CAR BLANKET! The front desk has been asked to send blankets and a second area heater and have been stalling.

Very, very old? Like ancient Egypt old? Of course based on the last portion of the comment I suspect the writer might be a current inhabitant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.

The island makes it onto CNN's 20 Best Places to Travel in 2020; not sure Victoria is that renowned for its 'stately' Edwardian architecture as I'm pretty certain London just slightly beats us on that score, and I have no clue what "boat shoes" are, but its a nice write-up overall:

Available at Old Navy for $34.99. Presumably that's for a pair and not each.

Was right up there with Kyrgyzstan (seriously). They must not have been thinking of the LGBTQ community when they did their list..

 

American diplomats expressed concern in October 2014 when Kyrgyzstan lawmakers passed a law that imposes jail terms on gay-rights activists and others, including journalists, who create “a positive attitude toward non-traditional sexual relations
