I've been to Portugal. Drove from the south to the north.
Lisbon is a great busy brash city that is more South American than European. Fascinating place.
Porto is great too.
Portuguese women, great if you like your girls dark which I do.Terrible drivers though. Only the Russians are worse.
i hv been to quite a few places in India[email][/email], neva been out yet..... my fave has been the back waters of Kerala, nicknamed God's Own Country.... planning for Ladakh this year... hopefully shld be able to do it
I've not been too many places that exotic but I'd have to say Segovia, Spain is definitely up there.
I used to live in So Cal as well which was really nice, though you don't appreciate it when you wake up to it every morning.
