Tuck a map into a pocket, pick a general direction, and get Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Jan 7, 2016
  • Happy New Year!What a celebration! What a party! What a fun time we had ringing in the New Year in Porto's main square with the rest of the city.

  • Another travel dayNot much to tell, as it was another long travel day, taking first the train from Porto to Lisbon, then Lisbon south to Faro, our next destination.

  • Everyone rests on a SundayOur planning for this leg of the journey has been a little lacking. We didn't consider that holidays in Portugal are pretty much a no-go regardless of how touristy your town is. Shops were closed, restaurants closed - most with Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Jan 2, 2016
  • Journey to the end of the EarthMario again. Seems I've been delegated to write the "adventure" blogs this time around, so let us begin the adventure.

  • And we're traveling again...I want to make a formal complaint right now: I HATE APPLE. This is the second time that I find myself running like a mad woman to catch a train, that I really should not have been late for in Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Jan 4, 2016
  • These be some trying days...Ever wish you could just hole yourself up for the day, warm and dry and comfy at home, and forget the day ever happened? It's been raining just about every day since we got to Portugal, and let me tell Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Jan 5, 2016
  • Getting out in natureTime to get out of the city! Today, we headed by train(no trams for us today!) to Sintra, a neighborhood to the far west of Lisbon, once known as being the summer getaway for the royalty of Portugal. It is Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Jan 6, 2016

  • Rain, rain, GO AWAY.It rained. ALL DAY. And not the, "oh, I'll just take out my umbrella and dance around the puddles" kind of pretty rain you see in the movies. No, this was category 5 typhoon, horizontal-falling sheets of rain, the kind Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Dec 27, 2015
  • Going back to schoolFinally, a sunny day! We've basically been checking the weather forecast every 5 minutes now to see if the rain will ever stop, and the promise of a sunny day gave us very little time to see everything. We wanted Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Dec 28, 2015
  • A little more exploration and port to tasteMario's blog - stardate 31122015 It seems that late December weather in Porto consists of one day of sun, and one day of torrential downpours. The forecast for the day called for yet another 100% chance of getting Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Dec 29, 2015
  • A day at the beach!The other day, on our way to Coimbra, while watching the ocean speed by us, Mario and I noticed a very long, very nice-looking boardwalk running along a good part of the beach, weaving in and out of the dunes. Posted by skyisblu in Paris-Portugal Holiday 2016 | Dec 30, 2015

  • Kaimas prie Atlanto. Kontrabandos laivynas.Čia, Povoa De Varzim marinoje, ant kranto stovi kelios policijos areštuotos burinės jachtos. Policija portugalų, o jachtos iš viso svieto. Šiais laivais plukdė kontrabandą ir jiems (laivams) nepavyko. Pradėsiu nuo jauniausios ir geriausios, ir taip ju Posted by gramas in MENKĖ PO LOVA | Apr 28, 2017

  • Sintra SummaryWe took a 45 minute train from Rossio Station to Sintra. Once again, we encountered confusing signage in the train station. The lack of clear signage is something Portugal must have shared with Brazil when it ruled it. Sintra is Posted by lsto90 in Get Out of Town | Apr 11, 2017
