Re: Is Porto worth the trip?

I have not done a lot of research yet. Porto is a historic city, which always draws me. It is supposed to be beautiful. Other than hat i am just trying to figure out what to do if I run out of things in Lisbon.

Re: Banksy Opens up a Bemusement Park in England

GarryRF ·
Certainly looks like "Something completely different" To admire its absurdity is quite refreshing. Whether it has international - appeal only time will tell. The beauty of English weather is Mac could have driven North to the Costa-del-Mersey. Cut the grass - take the grandkids to the park and a warm glow of sunburn for not wearing my hat. But with a name like Dismaland I suppose warm rain is part of the experience, Love to see more photos too

Re: Heather in Bloom - North York Moors.

A most amazing and lovely landscape (with tip of the hat to its Scottish counterpart). When is a good time for a tourist to see the heather in bloom? I know some folks that would plan a trip just to see these colors.
