    I haven't been to any porn conventions lately but I almost went this year... I was close. Maybe I'll have to wear my Galatassary shirt when I go

    I leave the country for a week and:
    We actually traded for AR
    The Rangers drop 3 in a row to the Devils
    The Mets drop 4 in a row
    We draft an edge in Round 1

    Anyways, Portugal was awesome and I highly recommend going there.

    For my divorce vacation in 2012 I went to Lagos and had a fucking blast, no yanks anywhere, lots of hot topless Euro chicks on the beach and cheap booze

    Glad I was single when I went because I certainly celebrated getting divorced in style

    The sleeping quarters aren’t as comfortable as you’d hope. Concept is great, right - the train is basically a hotel and you wake up in a new country…. I never thought I’d be a fan of guided tours but after doing both europass and a tour… do the tour.

    I did get to ride the Eurostar from London to Paris. That was a fantastic experience as was the entire trip and I have a thing for trains... Maybe in '25, we'll get back to Europe. I'll be looking at several trip options.

    I’m not trying to belittle the trains; if you make it west take a train ride from Geonveva or Lyon to Bern and enjoy the smell of chocolate in the air with a view of the Swiss Alps over the lake….

    25 yo me figured it was a great way to save money by traveling while trying to sleep… I’m suggesting that’s not the best decision but I’m sure you wouldn’t have that same poor judgement.

    I am 45 years old. My goal is to add 2 or 3 new countries to my list every year.

    This years plan is to conquer Scandinavian countries in November.

    During Thanksgiving week I will fly to Istanbul first. Stay 3 days in Istanbul. Then will fly to Copenhagen to add Denmark to the list. When in Copenhagen I will take short train to Malmö, Sweden. From Malmo I will fly to Oslo, Norway and than I will come back to USA. Whole trip in 1 week. Didn't book it yet. Will book it once my job situation is clarified.

    Many have tried to conquer Scandinavia, none have succeeded. Good luck to you.

    Before covid world travelling was huge . One down side in Europe was the planes were packed and airports packed and slow , it was often an 8 hour day for a 3 hour plane trip. Its often easier to catch a fast train then to fly . You end up in city centre , dont have security with luggage . Eurorail was popular 20 years ago . The problem of overnight travel is that you end up in city in the morning but cant get access to a hotel room till later in the day . You have to leave your luggage at train station or hotel. Doing a bus tour is more expensive but you dont have to organize transport and you have a hotel room every night . When your time is limited there great .
