    Don’t burn your bridges.....

    Maybe something to make a note of to go and see. If nothing else, it’s different to the ‘must do’ Millau bridge.

    https://ponte516arouca.com/en/

    The longest pedestrian footbridge in the world has just opened.

    Where is it, mate?

    It’s in Portugal.

    Yeah but where, mate?

    The website tells you exactly.

    That looks spectacular. Is there a weight limit for Tossers?

    A quick map check - 15 miles south of the Douro Valley and about 60 miles SE of Porto so not to far off the beaten track.
    (A good head for heights required). I'm out.

    Dive or drive? One letter makes all the difference.

    There isn't enough money in the world to get me to walk across that bridge.

    It's a no from me.
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.

    It’s hardly a pedestrian footbridge if you have to book to cross it; more of a tourist attraction. Oh and it’s a vertiginous no from me too.

    To distinguish it from a road or rail suspension bridge, I can only assume?

    But hey, I guess a ferry is still a ferry, even if you have to book and / or pay to use i?

    It is a waste of time, as the Iberian peninsula does not exist beyond the Pyrenees.

    This bridge is going to test my nerve.

    That looks cool, would love to try that
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !
