A Day in La Rochelle, France

Now, why would someone wouldn't want to live here?
I know... I know... there is a French flag in there... but those "local" representative of French nation are friendlier and much more good looking than those in Paris (go ahead and call me a racist).
Apart from that, I rediscovered a sea food. After a huge disappointment (in London) of paying more then 20GBP for 10 molluscs, I was served a bowl (about 400-500 grams) of Moules Au Roquefort, bowl of chips (oui mesdames et messieurs, the famous French fries), Kronenbourg 1664 and the coffee all for 15 euro! Don't get me wrong. It wasn't one of those dodgy places (where you can eat till you drop for 5 quid) but a decent restaurant by the ocean among white sails of yachts...
What else, the city is beautiful! Check out the photo album at

P.S.: Ohh yeah, I forgot to mention. This was a business trip...

Cross Europe in 4 Days

I took my time... sorry for that.
As I mentioned before, I starded a new job at Verizon Business UK a few weeks ago and those guys keep me busy.
We have this multinational, multicontinental, multimillionaire client whom I cannot mention (of course) and last week, I had to audit their offices in Lisbon, Madrid, Paris and Brussels. Of course, you can fly, but why to fly if you can take a Tranhotel?
There is not much to say about it; Restaurant was SUPERB, my (Grand Deluxe) cabin was small but comfortable with my own shower and toilet, but the best thing is that you don't have to get two hours in advance to the airport (which is usually located some distance from the city) for tedious security checks, and you arrive all refreshed to the very centre of your destination.
Well, check out my photo album at Although most of it is Lisbon, you can still catch a glimpse of Madrid and Paris.
