Yeah it's well known that Messi has been an admirer of Arsenal especially Henry and Wenger.

^^^My bad too btw, I said "maybe you were Eurotripping" thinking you were ICECITYFC. Got confused


The temperature in England isn't as bad as people make it out to be, being that close to the arctic poles you'd assume it's cold - but they're a big island thats heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean.

Rarely does it stay freezing or stay snowing - In Winter, we get way more colder average temps (if you're from the Midwest or Northeast). - It's just the god damn rain man, thats what just kills everything. It's so depressing and dark laugh.gif

If it didn't rain as much, it'd be like a cooler (colder) version of San Francisco, and it'd be tolerable. But I can't be buying raincoats or dusters and more umbrellas just to visit a place for a week. Literally the only reason why I've only been to England once. I'll go back tho.

I will take the San Francisco winters>English winters 10 out of 10 :lol I want to say I'll never go back again during winter but who knows, if theres another US friendly during that season I'll prob go back over there...

 

 

Until then, I'm sticking with trips in August to catch the beginning of the PL.... and even then the tail end of their summers are crap :\

A place like Stoke on cold February Monday, a team like Leicester/WHU/Palace/Everton right after an away UCL match in Eastern Europe, or any match between Dec 21 and Jan 2... I wouldnt say he's guaranteed to score at will against those teams. But he would certainly provide assists. There arent a lot of great Left Backs in England at the moment. Kolarov? Azpilicueta? Monreal? Rojo/Shaw? 

post #13387 of 50776
Well I was in Europe recently so I took that as if you meant me lol.

At least in SF you know it's gonna be cold. Most of Europe had bipolar weather. In my study abroad they had an activity day of playing some footy with all the students and it was hot as hell. Once we finished some students cut out early to go to a public pool. Hour and a half later it was hailing Hella hard. That I can't do man lol

Yea I went in the Winter too, it was dark by 3:00pm - it was crazy laugh.gif

Still had a great trip, even tho it rained most of the time (and I was in SUNNY PART of England for half the time). I'd def go back again, just never in the winter. Spring would be more likely.

Speaking about all the weather stuff - man if ya'll are trying to start a Eurotrip ya'll really have to go to Portugal first.

I'm really not saying this because I'm Portuguese - but Portugal has the perfect most ideal weather in Europe. It's exactly like L.A. but a bit warmer in the summer. Only place to surf in Europe (being right on the Ocean and temperate), sunsets are out of this world, and its just the perfect location to start a Europtrip.

Most people start a Eurotrip in Spain and move east - **** that. Madrid weather is terrible (Crazy hot or crazy cold), they're located in a deserted area (no ocean anywhere), scenery is terrible. Starting off in Portugal first then moving east and continuing to Madrid, then Barca, etc. Thats the way to do it.

I convinced two people of that IRL. So if I could convince any of ya'll too, it'd be a win-win. Plus half of Portuguese people speak English wink.gif

I've actually been thinking about that these last few weeks, about doing Portugal-Spain and moving east before catching a flight to England.... just gotta figure out how to get a few weeks off work, which may prove to be an impossible task :lol|I

Argentina yes, but then again he only has to play there like once or twice a year if that. Spain not really, the climate on the coastlines of the Iberian peninsula is almost perfect like Coupe just pointed out. That's why Andy Gray said what he did, it barely ever rains or gets cold on the Spanish coast.

Well if you get the time off do the right thing laugh.gif

Start off in Portugal, do your thing there - then go to Madrid - only like a 5 hour car/train ride anyways. But Waittttt, if you're really trying to do it right thing - Start off in Portugal, go North to Galicia, Spain (another beautiful place & culture) then BOOM! - Right there, you need to decide whether its worth it to go to Madrid. (Most of the time it's not unless you want to see Real Madrid laugh.gif)

If you decide it's not worth it to see Madrid, you'd be in a perfect location to just continue East and you'll eventually end up in Basque Country (which is a must), then Barcelona ,and then BOOM you're in France. From there on out, I can't help you anymore until you reach Paris or decide to stay on the beautiful French coast headed towards Italy. But if Paris is your way to get to England, everything between Paris & Barcelona isn't worth it and I wouldn't be able to save you if find yourself in a "Taken Hostage" like situation.

So good luck rck
post #13396 of 50776
Agreed with Coupe, Portugal is the one of the most underrated countries to visit not just because we're biased Portuguese or cause of the weather (I actually hate summer there cause it's too hot, have to take 2-3 showers a day laugh.gif) but because of the value as well. It's a poor country so Uber, taxis, food, beer, wine, airbnb, etc are all dirt cheap. Clubs and bars are open til 5-6 AM. You can rent a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment with some friends, visit historic sites, eat out and party 24/7 for a whole weekend and not even spend $100 total pimp.gif

Overall Asian countries are 100x more fun to visit than European countries IMO because of the similar nightlife but with MUCH better food and more interesting cultures, but Portugal and Spain are the 2 exceptions for me.

SFC - Portugal was too hot for you in the summer? It barely goes over 90? It'll be like 85-88 degrees in Lisbon and like 82-85 degrees in Porto, no humidity. Thats too hot for you man? laugh.gif

NoCal f'ed you up man. In Madrid it'll be 100 degrees and the air quality will be at danger levels. Now thats HOT laugh.gif

I went to Lisboa for 2 weeks in June and it was 95-100 the whole time. I usually have bad luck with weather every time I visit laugh.gif night time weather is always amazing though. You can be outside at 4 AM and it'll be as cold as slightly chilly day time weather at worst.

But yeah, living in the Bay Area does change your tolerance for hot weather. It's around 70-75 degrees here 90% of the year, so anything above 80 is hot as hell to us laugh.gif

The Portuguese Solar Gods must have been mad at you or something, 95-100 is like record type of heat for Lisbon, especially in June. When I said between 85-88 degrees for Lisbon, that's what I meant for the highest it gets not on average laugh.gif

You sure you weren't converting the Celsius charts incorrectly and adding more to Fahrenheit? laugh.gif

I know man. During Festas I took my friends to stay in the Alfama district for the weekend and we were DYING every time we had to leave the apartment to walk up all those steep hills. A 5 min walk had us drenched in sweat laugh.gif

Of course, the weather decided to go down to 80 the day I had to leave for home laugh.gif I'm telling you, I have horrible luck. It rained nonstop in Amsterdam and Bordeaux when I visited this year, and it was sunny as hell every time I headed to the airport to leave laugh.gif

laugh.gif

We just got to get this straight man because I'm promoting dudes to start the Eurotrip in Portugal and telling them how great the weather is and your coming in here saying 95-100 in June. That must have been some type of mistake or anomaly or something laugh.gif

95-100 degrees is UNHEARD of in Portugal ya'll, if it gets to be that hot and any of you guys are on your Eurotrip in Portugal - I will pay personally pay for a flight out of there to your next desired destination. That's how confident I am laugh.gif (Just don't make it Madrid, because in the ridiculous off chance that Lisbon gets to be 100 degrees, Madrid will be at 125 degrees, easy)

Yea it's supposed to be unusual, but here's what the weather was in Lisbon when I took my friends around the end of June, and it was slightly hotter than this in real life in the Alfama district. I left Tuesday morning that week, and like I said, it dropped to 80 right when I was leaving. This is from Accuweather



Coupe, you want to reimburse me for any of my flights? laugh.gif

I have to get to Portugal. In addition to all the things Couple and SFC415 have said, everyone I spoke to who had visited said the people are the friendliest and most hospitable in Europe.

And +1 for Bay Area weather, specifically the immediate East Bay, ruining one's ability to acclimate.

Barcelona in early February is the coldest I've ever been. 40 degrees in the day time. mean.gif

Anything out side the 60 - 75 degree range is some next level stuff for me. laugh.gif

eek.gif Wow dude, I stand here corrected and ****** owned. My bad laugh.gif


I had to google it after I saw your pic and found this...



Concern on continent as heatwave set to drive temperatures beyond 40C
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/30/heatwave-temperature-continent-40-spain-portugal-france



I guess it was the worst heat wave since 2003. Temps were up to 85+ degrees in England and France and 111 degrees in Madrid during the same time too. Wow, that is crazy. I can't reimburse the flight homie, sorry laugh.gif but I'll buy you a bottle of wine of Portuguese wine one day for global warming messing up your stay. laugh.gif


Besides the fact that you may have had the worst-timing in the history of Portuguese summers, when you booked your flight - for that specific week too laugh.gif - I can reassure everyone here that is no way the normal average temperature. This was just a huge uncommon exception that SFC had the worst-luck ever with laugh.gif

Damn SFC, that really must have been rough. What kind of hapless fortune are you carrying on your shoulders whenever you vacations, stay away dude!!



What "Normal" life is like, whenever SFC isn't around laugh.gif
