Did you think that the -love-/-hate- fad had died prematurely? Not a chance!
Which generally loved places did you go to and NOT like that much?
For me, I didn't care for Paris. The weather was cold, everything seemed dead, and the people were as cocky as their reputation.
Of course, if I went again in Spring, which I plan to do so in order to enjoy it how it should be enjoyed, I may feel differently
