  1. Hi Victor

    Thank you for you’re comment. Yes, I think Portugal will be the next travel destination.
    If you like good food, great weather and first of all nice people, then this is the place to be.

    Portugal was named “Best Golf Destination 2008″ by readers of Golfers Today, a British publication. Fourteen of Portugal’s courses are rated in the top 100 best in Europe. If you want a condensed view of European landscapes, culture and way of life, Portugal might very well fit the bill.

    Portugal is one of the warmest European countries. In mainland Portugal, yearly temperature averages are about 15°C (55°F) in the north and 18°C (64°F) in the south. Madeira and Azores have a narrower temperature range as expected given their insularity, with the former having low precipitation in most of the archipelago and the latter being wet and rainy.
