Possibly the single most boring place to holiday in on the planet, the town of Salers
in the Auvergne is most noted for it's breed of Cattle
and the Cheese produced there. Perfectly summed up by a poster near the hotel lifts stating
(In french) "SALERS
! One town! One breed of Cow! One type
syndrome is the feeling you get when
you arrive for what you believe to be an action packed holiday and then end up spending
two weeks desperately reading anything
you can get your hands on by the swimming pool in a vague attempt to relieve
it amounts to a mind numbing boredom
while on holiday where you feel as if you should be having fun.
"Hey man, how's the holiday going?"
"Today I ended up reading the washing instructions on all of my clothes. I really should
have brought more books with me."
"Ah, a classic
case of Salers syndrome."
