I fully concur with both cities as excellent destinations...I have an office in BA. Excellent city to visit and has a bit of Paris, London and Rome feel thrown in. However, a rather long way to sail.
Notwithstanding that...I have always felt that CF has within its collective membership a veritable unlimited fount of personal and local knowledge which deserves a special section in the Forum, to enable easy access and dissemination to those interested in those locations. Normally when a question is asked about a country or specific landfall it can often dimidiate quite quickly into opposite for and against camps.
There are members as shown by Veronica, interested I believe, in presenting a viewpoint which is informative and useful and I do wish the CF could find a way of incorporating and disseminating these personally acquired experiences. With a specific section we could use and access them more effectively.
