I was a total geography nerd as a kid. I would sit and listen to headphones and look at my parents' world atlas. And, I would look at metro area and state maps in the gigantic road atlas that people used to take on trips. Gave me a general sense of where everything is in relation to other things. I'm betting kids aren't doing that much these days.
I had a fascination with geography as a youngster too - still do really! World capitals etc! Maybe we should start a geography thread! But yeah not a bad idea to change the name from Estoril Open to Portugal Open
