A tour to discover cork (in Portugal, not the Irish city)

When we booked the "Algarve jeep safari," they promised a tour to the interior to show there was more to Portugal's southernmost region than beaches, bars and golf courses. We passed through remote villages; stopped off at a couple of out-of-the-way places for a coffee break and lunch; visited a distillery; and finally stopped in a cork oak grove, where Tomás our guide gave an interesting presentation. At home, I usually drink wine in a screwtop bottle. I know there’s a bit of controversy…

  • I'm writing a book on the undiscovered Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Any ideas, suggestions, PR & lodging contacts, etc will be appreciated.
  • Yes, it's good as we need a tourism board to promote travel here from foreign countries. $10 is nearly the cost of 4 liters (about a gallon) of gas (petrol) in some European countries (e.g. Netherlands), so the price shouldn't put anyone off from visiting the USA.

    Bill to Create U.S. Tourism Board
    By Lionel Beehner

    The number of foreign visitors to the United States in 2009 was 9 percent below 2000. A new bill that passed the Senate last week, and is expected to be signed into law, aims to reverse that trend.

    The Travel Promotion Act would create a national tourism board to develop ad campaigns and raise awareness of United States security and visa procedures. The tourism board would be financed by a $10 fee on foreign visitors who do not need a visa to enter the United States.

    The travel industry has long advocated for a tourism board, arguing that the United States is one of the few industrialized nations without one. A January 2010 study by Oxford Economics, a forecasting and research group in Britain, estimated that a tourism bureau would bring in 1.6 million additional foreign visitors yearly, as well as pump about $4 billion into the U.S. economy.

    Critics of the bill, including some Republicans and some airline industry representatives, say that the slump in foreign tourism is not a public relations issue, but rather a result of strict immigration rules that subject visitors to unwelcoming, and even humiliating procedures.
