Porto, Saturday 21 July

Saturday, 21 Jul 2018 | Views [162]

Up at sparrows and off to the Airport. Enjoyed out little unit.  On the first floor we were able to stand on the balcony and watch the world go by below and no one ever looked up, so it was like you were watching a drama of sorts.  We were ... Read more >

Porto, Friday 20 July

Up and picked up for our full day tour of the Duoro valley which is the main area for the production of port wine in Portugal.  We shared our bus with four French speaking Canadians from Montreal and a honeymoon couple (Richard and Louise) from ... Read more >

Porto, Thursday 19 July

Headed out to see more of the old town.  Started with the water taxi over the river, then the gondola up the hill to the top of the bridge and then walked up to the North Monastery.  The sun came to the party and the photos were great. ... Read more >

Happy birthday Asherah 😊 Today was a bit cooler and cloudy but never less we headed off to the beach for a look.  The bus took us through the city again before heading west to the beach.  As far as I was concerned it was not swimming weather, ... Read more >

Porto, Tuesday 17 July

The hop on hop off bus here is cheap so we decided on the bus with the cruise with the port tasting.  It was good to see around the city even if the commentary was five minutes behind what we were seeing.  We did the whole blue circuit which ... Read more >

Lisbon, Monday 16 July

Monday, 16 Jul 2018 | Views [156]

Up and out to the train station on time – and of course the train was late, so, we didn’t make it to Porto until about 2pm.  We are now masters of negotiating the train/metro and found our way to our accommodation – and wow! ... Read more >

Lisbon, Sunday 15 July

Happy birthday dad!!  Hope you had a great day. Headed off to Belem today via metro and tram and fluked a street festival with marching bands, bands on horseback and market stalls with interesting local goods for sale – but just browsing.... Read more >

Lisbon, Saturday 14 July

Saturday, 14 Jul 2018 | Views [155]

Another good tour – this time a walking one although it did start with a ride on the number 28 tram which is iconic to Lisbon.  The trams here are nearly all old as the newer trams cannot negotiate the narrow streets and tight corners. ... Read more >

Lisbon, Friday 13 July

Booked a full day tour to Sintra (and more).  Our little group of 8 met and headed for Pena Palace, which sits on a hilltop with a view of Sintra National Park and the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately for us there was no view today – the fog ... Read more >

Faro, Thursday 12 July

Happy Birthday Brydie Jane. Off to Lisbon on the early train out of Faro.  Both of us dozed on the way up – the previous night some of the street residents had been a bit loud.  Made it to the motel easily and managed to talk to Brydie ... Read more >

Faro, Wednesday 11 July

Wednesday, 11 Jul 2018 | Views [133]

Up and off to the harbour.  Took the two-island tour by small boat to go and check out the Atlantic Ocean.  It was an excellent little tour as the guide was knowledgeable about the local wildlife and kept stopping to show us birds, fish, crabs ... Read more >

Faro, Tuesday 10 July

Tuesday, 10 Jul 2018 | Views [143]

Having run for the last two weeks (and me for the few before) I decided to have a morning in and just stayed in bed.  Ian went for a walk and when he returned we took off for the town centre and did a Far-Eco Tuk tour which was a sort of electric ... Read more >

Bonn, Monday 9 July

Monday, 9 Jul 2018 | Views [178]

With Ute leaving early for work we sorted ourselves.  I am really going to miss the German bread for brekky.  Nothing quite like it at home.  Uneventful trip and all connections worked.  Arrived in sunny Portugal and found our accommodation ... Read more >
