Mike Gaston, a journalist for Belfast Radio 89 and NVTV, was in Northern Portugal to take part in a nature-themed press trip.
The journalist from the radio and television channel, both based in the city of Belfast, Ireland, embarked on a Douro River cruise, more precisely between Pinhão and Tua, in the company of his wife. During the trip, he had the opportunity to observe the margins of the Douro and interview some of the sailors on board.
The purpose of this press trip was to gather information about activities practiced in Porto and Douro, which will then be used in a few articles on local television and some spots on Radio Belfast 89.
Porto Convention & Visitors Bureau is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 by a group of institutions that wanted to develop the Tourism Industry in Porto and Northern Portugal.
