I wouldn't say any place in Western Europe is particularly unsafe for a Gursikh. You'll get the occasional funny look from some fetid Frenchman or imperious Italian, but whatever. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as is Rome, and I couldn't recommend the Swiss Alps any more highly.

I personally find Spain to be outrageously overrated, I can't fathom how some Brits become so hysterical at the prospect of holidaying in what is undoubtedly the backwater of W. Europe.

If you're not from the UK, you might try London or Edinburgh.

Actually, to tell the truth, I probably don't really want to go. Its just that I've been waiting several years for the opportunity to use the word 'ffords' in a sentence.

Been to Lisbon x2 and they have a Gurdwara on the outskirts of the City if you want to meet Sikhs most fresh from Punjab. Was expecting the usual gawping with the locals like I was a martian but nothing of the sort. I was lucky enough to have guides who I knew through work. If you are vegetarian I would research places to eat before travelling otherwise your choices will be limited.

Good places to visit in and surrounding areas are Casais (+Masala restaurant, worked by Punajbis), Sintra (Pena National Palace), Vasco da Gama bridge (longest in Europe) and Arrabida beach.

Thanks for your suggestion.

I was wanting more of sun sea sand with some character and things to see rather than just sitting on the beach.

Thanks, however im here for serious conversation. No jokes. Im sure theirs plenty of other forumns where you can exercise your sillyness. Just not on my thread.

I think I'll post what and where I want. Unless you "own" this entire forum nothing is really "yours." I made a humourous (well to me at least) comment and moved on. You brought it up again. You can filter out the silliness and read the sensible suggestions. That's not too hard is it? It's not as if "your" thread was inundated with replies. Now you've gone and made me really want to post silly stuff.

You're a difficult man to give travel advice to though bigcat13. Ignoring the fact that you don't exactly come across as a humourous fun person so fun activities and places are out of the question your prerequisite of 'sun, sea and sand' pretty much narrows it down to a beach holiday. If you're asking us whether we know of a beach in southern Europe that also houses, on the beach, lots of museums and an historic capital city the answer is no. One does not exist.

Will suggest Amsterdam (Netherlands)

It's a tourist hot spot, lay back & enjoy boat rides across canals. Tour Van gogh, rizk & diamond museums. Check out Tulip Gardens as well. Great place to shop & plenty of vegetarian food available in Centrum.There is a Gurdwara if you wanna have Langar.No racism but avoid Red Light District.

    • Did you not catch the use of the word 'many'? That implies some people aren't thus inclined. Seriously, do I have to micro-explain simple things because you didn't read properly? That would get seriously tiring - fast.    lol   if you're talking about Confucius's quote, then I'm pretty sure he was suggesting that a corrupt state routinely involves the promotion of corrupt people who have no care for those who are struggling in the state system.  
    • Nothing wrong with having a strong and well-built physique. Not all of us have the physical build of money-lenders and merchants. You can't positively-discriminate certain physical characteristics out of a people who identify with a particular religion. If that's what a particular faction ACTUALLY desires, then come out and state it unequivocally, "We don't want this tribe in this religion."
    • Presumably this quote was written at a time where taxes weren't collected.  Today, we just need the wealthy to pay their fair share of taxes which should suffice to support those most in need. Note need, not greed.
