Manel goes on holiday!
« em: 24 de Junho de 2007, 21:10:56 »
Translated from a topic in the board "Generalidades" - original by member rupi

Manel goes on holiday!

Fed up of working all year round, Manel has decided he needed some time off, but that meant holidays by himself without Maria, Toninho and much less his mother-in-law, whom he puts up with the rest of the time.
But there's a problem, Manel is short of cash, the EU funds have run out a long time ago, the palm tree plantation and rabbit-farming are not doing so good, effects of the crisis...
In face of this, Manel has gone to a local travel agent where a friend of him works. He wasn't high in expectations, but in the "El_Magro" Travel agency, whose speciality are low cost excursions to Fátima and the Holy, they came up with a neat program where he only has to spend the price of a mail stamp...

His friend told him:
Manel, if you want adventure-holidays without spending a penny?... Here's what you do, you hitch-hike and sleep at friends' houses!
And thus he forwarded manel to the Forum0937.

So I ask:

Who's willing to take up Manel for a few days?
Just a few - he's not a man who likes to spend much time in one place.

Whomever takes up the challenge only has to do what follows:

1st Enroll here in this topic and send member rupi his postal adress by Private Message;

2nd Receive Manel in his/her home, treat him very nicely and show him the beauties of the surrounding places, taking photos to prove it;

3º Publish here in the forum 3 photos of Manel on holidays;

4º Say farewell to Manel and send him (comfortably) to the next holiday site (which rupi will inform via Private Message).


In the end rupi will make a photo album from Manel's holiday, which will be made available online for everyone to keep a souvenir :)


PS: This idea of "Manel's holiday" has been given to me [rupi] by LBaixinho and El_Gordo, I thank them in the name of Manel, whom I think will like the holiday...

Hi,
I would like to invite Manel to spend few days in USA. He will fit very well with good people of Mid South. I will take him on a tour of Memphis, TN and  possibly Graceland.
Looking forward to seeing him!

That's a nice idea :)
I do invite Manel to Łańcut in Poland.
He could see the Castle http://www.zamek-lancut.pl/en/ and the unique museum of carriages.

It is unique, unless you have the same carriages in both museums :P

All you have to do is just to pack yourselves into Manel's suitcase :)

That's right.
In The Portuguese Nacional Coach Museum most of the vehicles are coaches and in "my" museum there are carriages mostly :)

The difference is the number of wheels?

Oh no :), most of them have 4 wheels.
I think the difference is mostly in size and purpose.

Possibly, also the timeframe.
There are a number of words for horse-drawn cars in here... I have no idea what tells them apart! :P

Hello,

I have just returned from a business trip to Barcelona (close, isn't it?) and guess who I met home? Manel!
He's currently enjoying his stay in Kraków and soon we are going to take some photos...

PS. If you ask me, Barcelona's toy stores are veeery dissapointing...
