Considering Portugal in late October. Is that too late in the season to visit? Thinking of flying into porto and out of Lisbon. Maybe hitting the southern part as well. Not planning on doing any swimming but would like to sit outside and enjoy a view of the water. Google says it’s probably still decent weather at that point—but curious if things close down etc. thanks!

I went to Porto and Lisbon during late Nov (Thanksgiving) and it was sprinkling on a couple days but the weather held up for the most part, also had awesome weather in Sintra.


Agreed. I went to Porto right before thanksgiving, and while there was some rain, the weather was pleasant for outdoor activities. I did not see any seasonal businesses. Everything appeared to be open. I loved the Intercontinental as home base there. Great central location.


Though note, Porto is currently under major construction due to a lot of public works projects. There was a lot of noise and traffic detours. But still worth the trip. It will be ongoing for the next few years.


What is your objective?

If it’s to socialize party and meet other travelers from around the world also on vacation, then yes you’re going after the peak season and there won’t be many other travelers around and bars and clubs won’t be packed and some may close early.

If your goal is to chill at the beach, swim and explore the country October is still a great time to go as weather is still amazing


Chill, and explore and mostly eat :-). So sounds like it will be good! Thanks!

I want to go this a solo trip.. sorry 😐 I know that wasn't the question ❓

Me and my husband—but hey if you end up there at the same time DM me and we can meet up!

My husband has a tendency of always shutting me down in discussions. I don’t know why, but his ingoing position is that I must be clueless regarding whatever topic we are discussing. It’s very annoying because 1) I find it disrespectful 2) I am smart enough to have the same job as him and 3) it means we can never talk about anything- he always turns it into an argumentative way of disproving whatever I say

Hi All,
Can you please providw your input as to How is cognizant from learning perspective?


We are re-starting our women’s networking group at our media/tech company after a 2 year hiatus and are working on a new mission statement and purpose to be more inclusive and better reflect the times. For example, previously, only women were allowed to join the group. We’d now like to expand our membership to anyone who identifies as woman or who are allies. I was wondering if you could all share the mission statement at your company’s women’s group and what kinds of programming are available?

Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.

The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?
