Who knew it would take a pandemic for us to explore outlet own backyards?? So good though because I forgot how beautiful Alberta is in the summer. Seeing it by bike, even better! I’ve been having an amazing staycation over here next door in BC. Thanks for blogging about Alberta and posting your photos. Hopefully international travel can commence for us all again, soon.

Barry, glad that your are safe and sound and home. I often felt that I was travelling with you (fighting the headwind or enjoying the tailwind boost) and I enjoyed your feedback to confirm your whereabouts. I am sure that you touched a lot of lives and inspired folks with your solo journey) . Keep your trip in you heart as you re-enter life in Edmonton. :-)

Interesting Review!
It's interesting that you mention being "interested in getting a first-hand view of the impact of the Financial Crisis from ten years ago." If I remember correctly, Portugal was greatly affected by that crisis to the point where it was causing suicides. You mention low wages/high rents and animosity towards the EU and I was wondering if you could be more specific about how Portugal has been/is still affected. I do agree that developing countries offer a lot to discover and are generally less expensive.

Unfortunately, the problems for Portugal are still there. Debt and demographics are not their friends. However, tourism is booming and they are a lost cost jurisdiction for Western Europe, so that will also play in their favour.

Would be nice to visit one of those, I agree with you that it's nice to see how things are done. I was at a cashew nut factory in India, was an interesting experience. :) Enjoy the rest of your travel! :)

The Apple
A great city and love the way you designed your trip. We may follow in your footsteps the next time we go. So much to see and so little time.

Thanks for the comment Dave and Merry Jo. One week isn't nearly enough to see the NYC. We did really enjoy the stays in Brooklyn and West Harlem.
