The Algarve..@ The Golden Triangle..

So I jet set to the Algarve..and stayed at the 'Vale do lobo', most established resort of Algarve and considered the Golden Triangle. 100 metres from the beach and I stayed at the La Meridian on the Vale do Lobo estate., the largest most modern resort. I wanted to be close to Vilamora and the marina.
Then I took a limousine taxi the hotel calls for you (yes I pay 4 it gee.. why are not some things 4 free? just put it on the room so I do not feel it right!) great driver tough..dropped me at shopping center 20 minutes from the resort ...my style of designers, Zara, Salsa, Berska, Stradivarius, all the Spanish & Portuguese designs... I got an amazing jean shoes..back with a taxi, I then walked to the Hotels night club withing the compound.. were the English has colonized the place, all drunk as usual..one step inside, a group zoomed on me and as I sat at the bar and ordered a drink and lite up my cigar, they have already figured out who is to make the 1 or 2 or 3 move.. and who finally will take me home.. so here it comes. are u a model...wow! "yes, sometimes..but my body has checked out tonight" was my line...has a great time tough... their accent is entertaining for the lack of having fun w the Portuguese...so we danced and laughed all morning, ...and split civilly with everyone...

Few days of pampering, I got bored at the resort and asked the concierge to book me another hotel in Vilamora itself..( my, was that magnificent hotel and view) and Vilamora is Vilamore..very commercial, but was time to people watch and go out every night.. next is a pic from my catwalks on the avenues of the Vilamora marina.. i love it when i get the whistles.. many Irish/English type.. great fish and port of course in every restaurant... I took a days trip to Albufera, 2 hrs room town, had great time at the Vilamora Casino one night, Russian everything, naked dancers ...very classy...see more pics in My Travel section.

My Reflection on Traveling

I was happy that I could host my trip movies for free on google, smart ad kind enough to get us over 100mb more than others. So I stated thinking what I always contemplate ad strike conversation with strangers at airport lineups, despite that I ave reached a 'VIP' status on the air.

Next think I ask your people to do is come up with a technology to 'beam us up', when we travel, because despite my fancy accommodations in bus class, I hate the airports with 100k people, line up for luggage, security all makes you feel you are in economy anyway.

Traveling is only a destination, where once you found pleasure starting at the airport where you meet people. No wonder the airports are equipped with fancy lounges, gyms, movie theaters, massage parlors.. you will see it in my movie...class level event better than in your land, you just have to pay for it... finally, the airports have become the DESTINATION!. I rest my case. Will ell u more bout my trip on next posting. Cheers for now. SB


Brazil, Sau Paulo - AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS! 3rd Trip in 2006

Movie is Finally Published...my own movie making experience...

Alright, I started in Brazil, Sau Paulo, is suppose to be winter season, but makes makes California looks like Alaska. It is a beautiful weather, land of the beautiful people, language, music and love. If you have been their before or did your reading properly, yes, you feel all of that I said right from the airport. Additionally it was few months after World cup, so you think of Pele, Ayton Senna....



My new Vista and movie making

Just finished making my movie on my new Vista, for my 'Around-the-World in 90 days' trip. Terrific! Vista is really made for this stuff entertainment. Once you get a handle on the features, you are on a deal. Only thing is the publishing quality after you host it on the next deteriorates. You look like a picture instead of the 'live human'. Go check it you. I have posted the link here: With over 100MB, maybe that goes without saying. I also needed to sort out a hosting space and google came to the rescue as usual. Thanks google.
