Portugal 22 sept - 2 oct.October 1, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F
We flew into and out of Lisbon, stayed in alcochete, coimbra and Lisbon.
We had a lovely time in alcochete staying in an apartment owned by a guy called Riz. It was lovely weather and we went birding with a South African girl called Betty. Had some lovely days out along the estuary and some relaxing evenings around alcochete.
Coimbra is a lovely hilly city in the north and has a huge university. It was freshers time and this meant that gangs of black tied and cloaked men and women wandered the streets night and day, chanting and singing. Paul was working so we were booked into a hotel just up near the university and walked up and down to get into the city. I did some exploring on my own and enjoyed the city, it felt very safe.
Finally we spent three nights in an apartment in Lisbon. We absolutely love Lisbon and will come back in a heartbeat.Read more
