Good share.

Can't see it changing. It's happening most capitals, same here, city centre is full of AirBnBs, stag parties and shops/restaurants that local people would never frequent.

Also a factor is the below.

World population 2006: 6,623,847,913
World population 2017: 7,600,000,000+

I guess I sympathise to some degree - but anyone expecting a quiet family life in a western capital city is either severely intellectually challenged, or brimming with an over inflated sense of class based self-importance. Get a grip. Move to the suburbs like everyone else.

LOL. Completely agree, I've seen some nice apartment blocks with internal gardens that can make things nice, or I love the Moroccan Riad concept which gives you calm and tranquility in your home at least, but once you leave your place you will have people infringing upon you and your personal space and that needs to be accepted if you live in a city.

Saying that, I think people need to develop more respect for shared spaces as the planet fills up more. It's gonna get very crowded over the next 20 years. Projected world population in 2037 will is 9 billion.

You are right Matty how many other “tourist” visit more than a couple of times, and leave as much money as we do

Merry Christmas

Translation: if you Dutchies don't like it (Amsterdam's current situation) fuck off to your own tiny fishing-villages then ya hear.
