|Subject: Missed it!|
I knew we came home from Portugal too soon! If you'll be in the Obidos, Portugal area November 4-9, 2003, you're in luck! http://www.festivalchocolate.com/festival_chocolate_ing.htm
Sometimes you're lucky enough to be in the right place at just the right time but it doesn't always work out that way unfortunately.
I remember a trip to Greece when we were visiting Halkidiki (strictly by chance) on the opening night of the casino at Porto Karras. We're not gamblers but we're great at openings with free food and drink. ;-) We breezed through the entrance and had a fantastic evening rubbing shoulders with the crème de la crème, so to speak.
But in Lisbon this trip, we missed by one day the 59th anniversary party of the Hotel Britania, which we dearly love. We shall try to be there next year!
What similar experiences have you had in your travels?
