My name's Sarah, and I just joined the site. Love it so far! I am currently planning an excavation in northern Portugal for several weeks before spending a week in Lisbon, and a week in Dublin! I love to travel and have lived in Aix-en-Provence, France for a year. Haven't travelled as much as I would like, but I have been to Italy and London.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!;)

Heya sarah,

welcome to this site! Im quite new here myself but allready this site has provided me with plenty of usefull traveling advice. My only advice to you so far is...don't go to portugal during the Soccer World Cup! The country will be flooded with drunk fools that mess up the admosphere of the country. I've had this once when I went to france 4 years ago.....football hooligans and police verywhere, so no opportunity to check out the beauty. Anyway, good luck and lot's of traveling to you!

cya, Jasper

Hi Jasper,

Actually while I was searching desperately for a plane ticket under $1500 I was told about the World Cup! Unfortunately I will be going with my school, and have no control over the timing. We will be in northern Portugal away from any big cities though, so perhaps I can avoid the drunk fools, unless of course they get really lost! I'm a classicist so I hope to bury myself in the glory of Rome, and avoid any hooligan-type behavior. At least until I reach Lisbon!

Thanks for writing to me.
