    Icebreaker Merino Shirts - Now a Blend - Alternatives?

    I don't know a company, but I have been finding a lot of 100% at op shops. Keep an eye out at your local op-shop and you will always find discarded merino tops.

    Got my first Covid-19 shot!

    Split Frances and Porto

    did anyone start the Frances then split it with Porto? For example, start at sjpdp Then hop off that rout and either bus or train to Porto and finish from there? At what point did you leave one to go to the other? Did you use train or bus to get to porto.
