775201 Travis : That's a long time to not say anything
775202 bob : there was no one to say it to
775203 Travis : Can't you create an imaginary friend?

775205 Travis : Looks like Jugador has begun his Portugal trip......
775206 bob : nada nuevo
775207 Travis : castellano, impressive
775208 bob : i wonder what portugal is like
775209 Travis : I've never been there...I'm sure it would be nice
775210 Travis : You've been to Spain and Italy.....along those lines I imagine...yet different
775211 Travis : But still foreign to your experience and mine
775212 bob : we were thinking of tacking Portugal on next trip
775213 Travis : You and the wife?
775214 bob : i believe they make wonderful custard tarts
775216 Travis : Well, you should be able to get some tips from Jugs....although I think he's only going to Madeira, not Lisbon or Oporto or Fatima
775217 Travis : custard tarts, interesting
775218 bob : thats an island
775219 Travis : A few years back Portugal was considered a bargain spot for tourists in Europe along with some Eastern European countries...not sure if that's still true
775220 Travis : Right, an island...I'm just saying he's not hobknobbing over the country, staying put in one spot
775221 bob : leitesculinaria.com/7759/...
775222 bob : i read that Lisbon is a city of only half a million
775223 Travis : That's fine....a capital that's not outrageously crowded
775224 Travis : nice tarts, you're correct
775225 Travis : Go before it's expensive as hell.....
775226 Travis : One thing about Europe...they don't have motels
775227 bob : we have them here
775228 Travis : They have youth hostels which are cheap but little privacy and I'm too old for that....or expensive hotels
775229 bob : we stayed in an apartment in Barcelona
775230 Travis : nothing in between unless you happen to find a family home that takes in tourists for a reduced price....and that takes time
775231 bob : what about Air BnB
775232 Travis : Yes, but what if you're driving a rental car and need a new place everyday, just driving around at your own pace?
775233 bob : i never drive on holiday
775234 Travis : Staying at a city for a few days is different....but just pulling into town and want a place to crash, maybe a TV and a shower, nothing fancy
775235 bob : as a driver you cant see the sights
775236 Travis : Sure you can, you pull over
775237 Travis : You park and do what you like, when you like, as long as you like, then move on....when on a tour you're hostage to schedules
775238 bob : there is nowhere to pull over in the narrow streets of European cities
775239 bob : we use the metro
775240 Travis : Yes, use the metro whenever possible
775241 Travis : And you CAN pull over, I've done it
775242 Travis : You can't park in the middle of the road in Rome lol
775243 bob : and we drive on the left here so it adds to the difficulty
775244 Travis : oh dear
