  • Alone with the godsIt was a rainy Sunday four years ago today. I know it because on that day I woke up in Budapest, had breakfast and got on a 12 hour bus trip to Warsaw to start a new life. We don't Posted by ZackMeursault in Translucent | Nov 15, 2019
  • Northern Portugal and PortoOur first two weeks in Portugal have been a complete revelation to us as novices in this country. The north is very mountainous and as such travel through the area is relatively slow unless you use one of the Posted by TinShedT in TinShedTravellers on Tour | Nov 14, 2019
  • Vila Cha, Gaia and Porto, Portugal Hola After leaving Braga, we head to another seaside village called Vila Cha. Our campsite is a short walk from the beach and is a very friendly site. We get a welcome port to have at Posted by Bob and Kerrie in 10 year anniversary jaunt | Oct 16, 2019
  • Sea day #2Up at 8.30 this morning - it is still darkish outside. Andrew, no 4.30am starts here... We had our usual breakfast in Raffles before going to the games room to play cards. We played for over 2 hours and then went Posted by Duffin travels in Mediterranean cruise 2019 | Oct 15, 2019

  • A Return to InnocenceI will always remember my late summer and early autumn of 2019 as a beautiful fairy tale period in my life. Like those happy memories we (the lucky ones, at least) have of our long lost childhood: distant yet so Posted by ZackMeursault in Translucent | Oct 7, 2019
  • Perusing PortoThurs 5 September: Up and away from Coimbra bright and early on the road to Porto. Stopped for a swim at a nice beach, Aveiro, on the way. Porto has been a highlight of our trip, and certainly a Posted by philandmc in Phil and MC's Iberian Adventure | Oct 7, 2019
  • Turning eastWe have turned east along the south-facing Algarve coastline. It is not only still brilliantly sunny but it is also much warmer and the sea is calmer. There is a lot more tourist development and some of the beaches are Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Oct 1, 2019
  • Impressions of Porto===23/05/13 flying to the sun=== After many months of bad weather, I was happy that finally this day had arrived, so that I and my fellow companions had the opportunity to go and spend a few days in the southern sun. At Posted by Ils1976 in European short trips | Sep 29, 2019
  • Southern Portuguese coastline; mostly facing westBeach resorts along the west-facing coast have a definite end-of-season feel with far fewer people and easy parking. Nevertheless, we spotted a row of 7 camper vans each from different countries: E, GB, I, NL, F, D and P. Apart Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Sep 28, 2019
  • Tiles (azulejos) Tiles are commonly used to decorate buildings of all sorts in Portugal., inside and out My favourites are those using geometrical patterns. These can be made up of individual mosaic-type pieces, such as those using Moorish designs and imported from Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Sep 21, 2019

  • CenteringMon 2 September: Our drive from the Algarve on the south coast to Porto on the North West coast would take us through the centre of Portugal. We’d eyed a few possible places to visit en route and Posted by philandmc in Phil and MC's Iberian Adventure | Sep 16, 2019
  • Northern Portuguese beachesThe coast is quite flat with long, soft, white sandy beaches, dunes and lagoons. The beaches are not very swimming-friendly because the sea is rough and very cold. And they tend to shelve steeply, making lengthy beach walking hard on Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Sep 14, 2019
  • PortoPorto is a lovely city to visit. It has a wide river, steep hills with good views and pretty, colourful houses, which are not all renovated although there is a lot of building work going on. And in the cathedral Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Sep 14, 2019
  • Alive on the AlgarveWednesday 28 August: Our first big drive. Nearly 300km but just 2 ½ hours on a major toll road with a speed limit, regularly and spectacularly exceeded by many, of 120kph. We have a toll story Posted by philandmc in Phil and MC's Iberian Adventure | Sep 10, 2019

  • Porto on footWe thought it a good idea to take a guided tour of Porto to be sure we covered most of what we wanted to see. What better than an historical tour? Appropriate I guess in that now I’m writing about Posted by dowdeswell in Europe 2019 | Sep 6, 2019
  • Into PortugalWe crossed the border into Portugal with the only indications being almost imperceptible: a new language on road signs (but this happens within Spain too and Portuguese seems quite similar to Gallego to someone who doesn't know either), a change Posted by Hollysutherland in Great Atlantic Trip 2019 | Sep 5, 2019
