    Hi from Portugal

    My name is Jürgen. I'm German, 57+ and living in the lovely city of Coimbra, Portugal, between the sea and the mountains.
    I got a 2016 Crossrunner a week and a half ago, my wife and I had my first trip through the Portuguese "serras" last weekend, and I'm totally in :100: with it.

    Oh yes, definitely.  :158:

    I've been in England a few times, but only driving cars. Beautiful, too! And what I saw of Wales and especially Scotland ...  :114: :100: :100: :100:
