Well finally next week, after having been away too long, I’m returning to my favorite place, the Douro River in Portugal. This time I won’t paddling my kayak but I will be visiting some of the same places we visit on our Douro Kayaking Expeditions. The reason for my trip is to visit all the B&B’s and hotels and restaurants we will visit on either our 5 night trips or our 9 night trips. All the places where we stay or eat are small family run places and I believe personal contact is much better than simply making reservations by email. If I were running a large organization this personal touch might not be possible but since that’s not the case, I’m on the road again.
I really look forward to seeing old friends and of course in some cases making new friends.
