Chris Davenport leads a team of skiers up a steep peak in the Antarctic Peninsula.
There are 300 posts and counting on our dullest places message board. Almost every city, town and village in the UK – not to mention the world – seems to have someone who hates it. One place, however, sticks unavoidably out.
Stand up, Luton! Never mind that the town holds one of Europe's biggest carnivals and has a proud and interesting history of hatmaking, one user compares it to Slough, whose "one redeeming feature is that it is not Luton".
A number of other users suggest the most interesting feature of the former centre of Vauxhall car manufacture is the proximity of the M1 – by which you can leave.
And it may be true that Luton is best known for another exit point, namely its airport, but it is also home to the occasionally top flight – presently lagging – Luton Town football club. So, come on, Luton defenders, let's hear from you!

This is so wrong. Canada is not only beautiful and cultural, we have many amusements for children as well as adults. Toronto Vancouver Montreal and Ottawa. Ottawa has Winterlude and the longest skating rink in the world. At Winterlude you will also see ice sculptures, Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau just across the river offers fun for the whole family. We have Niagara Falls with so much history there and lots of amusements for the kids including hotels with water parks inside. Rocky Mountains wow; take the train through the Rockies and you will see sheer beauty. Quebec City is full of culture and history and is fun for kids. Look for an outdoor oven that bakes homemade bread and maple butter artists row etc. etc. The Maritimes are exciting and very family oriented so you would find things to do.
Our country is wondeerful and I am so happy I grew up in this country with all the culture and history from coast to coast
