“There’s nothing in this world so sweet as love. And next to love the sweetest thing is hate.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Everybody knows the Greeks don’t like the Turks, Americans ridicule the Canadians, and India and Pakistan don’t get along. In preparation for an upcoming post I want to find out from you,
Who Does Your Country Love To Hate?
You’ve all been around the world and have unique knowledge of different countries’ and cultures’ rivalries. What about Norway, South Korea, or Thailand? Leave me and the other readers some of the national rivalries you know about in the comments. I’m especially interested in hearing about some of the lesser known ‘sibling rivalries’.
Next week I’ll be posting how these rivalries can benefit your travels, but for now, thanks for the comments!
