I bought a few bits from this site sheinside.com, got the email dispatch confirmation about a week ago, checked it yesterday to find the tracking info and realised the address was wrong! it had my street and town in Norway but Ireland as the country :( so now I'll have to wait bloody ages for it to be returned to them, and re-sent to me. Moral of the story is, don't move to Norway.

think it's the unpredictable weather in porto is the main thing putting me off

barca seems to be the safer option but e300 all-in sounds like great value

I always thought the rain in spain stayed mainly on the plain. Must have been misinformed
