Bom dia, Miguel, e bem-vindo a Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Portugal, Travel Marketers/Publicists, Luxury Travel, Budget Travel, Eating/Drinking the World, Golf Getaways, Beach-Bumming, Resorts Corner, History/Heritage/Archaology, our Portuguese Language/Culture Club, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, Portugal, and the Portuguese National Tourist Office.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, and associates. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!).
Thanks much for joining us, Miguel; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
Bom Dia Miguel: Michelle Moranha Winner here. Funny I don't think you remember but your office and Jayme Simoes and SATA helped me with a trip to the Azores and Lisbon in 2008, May . I just wrote to several of my contacts there to advise I am finally able to write the story and give it a good outlet with lots of readers via a new newspaper column of mine! ( one million) worldwide . The magazine I was on assignment for collapsed while I was on the trip! So it's wonderful to talk with you again my friend!
