call me big papa
Probably things would be different now I'm not 19 and wouldn't have to walk around with a big map.
Always fancy doing this kind of thing but just no way to get twelve people organised, in advance. Even to get 5 of us to rent a little place together outside Lisbon seems impossible.thats why i admire the way you and your 12 closest male friends just rent a villa with a pool somewhere warm and stay there. no interaction with the locals. just get the beers in.
why would you go to a foreign country alone though? i would never do that, not for love nor money. i went to Evesham alone once and stayed in a Travelodge and it was terrifying and strange.It's a really strange feeling being in a foreign country alone, shits me right up. It feels like an adventure just to go into a shop to buy crisps.
I actually feel like this in strange British cities too. Used to feel like that in London but now my heart pumps Beefeater blood.
