A walk and a stay in history
October 11, 2017 - Nelas, Portugal
Up early again although we don't need to be ready until 8.15am. At least it was a chance to relax and enjoy a good Hotel Teatro breakfast with the rest of our group. This time we knew where everything was. It was very easy to just slow down and talk to the others about where they ate last night and the plans for the day. John was a bit late again this morning so we were all in the foyer and checked out before he arrived. Today we drove to Amarante. Alessandro had to park a little way away...

Going Home NOW
October 18, 2017 - Lisbon, Portugal
I know we are a bit behind in our Journal but we will catch up. It is for our benefit as much as for yours. Our bus trip improved markedly once John got used to having a bunch of Aussies in his group. We saw a lot of places going into the north of Portugal and even on to Santiago de Compestela in Spain. That part of the trip returned to Lisbon where we had 2 nights before beginning a tour to the south of Portugal as far as Lagos. For that part of the trip we had a different guide who gave a...

We make a home in the theatre
October 9, 2017 - Porto, Portugal
We went down for breakfast at 7am, the earliest we could. The dining room was already very busy as there were five coaches and another twenty-seater parked outside overnight. Breakfast food was fine if a bit hard to get at on occasion but coffee from an urn is not the best. We had a 7.45am start with John and our new driver, Mario, who probably spoke English at least as well as John. We drove down into the old town of Porto to collect the others then a drive back through the heights of...

Back to University
October 8, 2017 - Porto, Portugal
John had impressed on us the need to leave by 8am but breakfast didn't officially start until 7.30am. We went down to check-out and hopefully to breakfast at 7.15am. Other tour groups were just heading in for breakfast so we tagged along. We left Fatima a bit before 8am for the drive to Coimbra. The Universidade de Coimbra is the oldest university in Portugal and John had booked an early timeslot for a tour which gave access to view the library which houses a number of old books. Some of...

A pilgrimage to Fátima
October 7, 2017 - Fátima, Portugal
We woke up early to crash the doors for breakfast at 8am as we needed to be at Marquis de Pombal Square by 8.45am. It was made clear in the paperwork that being late was not an option. In fact it was 7.50am when we sat down to breakfast and we were already checked out. We made it a lighter breakfast this morning but the woman looking after us this morning understood the need for coffee early. Lattés again for both of us but it was hot and strong. At 8.25am we had a taxi called and it was...
