This trip has been amazing! Even better than I expected.
It started in the wonderful town of Viana do Castelo. Beautiful friendly people. Delicious food. We were interviewed by the newspaper (Jornal de Notícias), and then by TV (RTP1). What fun seeing ourselves on the TV while we ate lunch!
We visited the Gerês National Park in the mountains. Beautiful. And swimming in a mountain stream was great fun. Well, I only got my feet wet, too cold, but fun watching the others swimming in a great pool in the stream.
Then we stopped in Amarante, Diana’s home town. I was greeted by music and many people, with a basket full of gifts from the stores on the street. Diana’s mother and the rest of large family greeted me with open arms and many hugs!
Now we are in Porto, the 2nd largest city, where Diana went to University, so she has been a great tour guide. We visited the Bolhão Market, São Bento, Torre dos Clérigos, Aliados and walked in some old beautiful streets! Then we had a yummy Francesinha in Diana’s favorite restaurant with many of friends.
Keep in touch with you all, i’m having a great great time here, in Portugal!
