New Model Soldier gig

New Model Soldier played possibly their last gig as singer David Kurley says farewell due to upcoming migration to Portugal. The band supported David’s other act, Babyshambles. Good set from both followed by a night of excellent DJ model soldier

After the gig I bumped into Jennie and Josh. Richard Hawley was in the background behind my ear

Travel to Portugal

After reading about David Kurley’s intention to set up a glamping site in Portugal I decided to go back and check out the country. I flew in from Manchester (Terminal 1) to Porto EasyJet on Flight 1989 and stopped in Hospedaria Do Bonfim, Rua Do Bonfim 316, Bonfim, Porto. The hotel was very dated, but great value, and only a 20min or so walk to the centre.

I loved Porto. Great city with some lovely architecture. And a really cool bridge that’s illuminated in the evening. As usual on my travels I walked all over the place and saw just about every corner. I also tried some new dishes including the famous Portugese dish Francesinha which is really just a Portuguese sandwich original from Porto, and very filling!
