This is a great idea to have podcasts on places you visit, just one question why is the picture of Porto, Portugal associated with a podcast about a bad hotel experience which didn’t even take place in Portugal?



Oops, because I forgot to change the photo for this episode since I was posting it in a hurry from Mexico. I will try and remember to change that this weekend.



Thanks for all the time you put into the podcast. I have loved learning about all the great places to go.
