I would like one person to ask, "What is the most mediocre place to stay in...?" What are the worst sights to see in...?" "What restaurant really stinks in....?"

I think more travelers think in terms of the Guiness book-the most, the best, the fastest rather than actually seeing the countries they are visiting. It is more important to brag about where are you going or where you just came from than actually having a memorable trip. There is a certain fear that reeks from these posting that they are afraid to make a mistake, see something by accident, or be thought of as a fool rather than enjoy the serendipity of travel. This is nothing more than brand name tourism.
