    Wieder am Meer

    October 18 in Portugal

    Heute war es keine weite Reise, erst mal die Gastankstelle suchen zum auffüllen einer Flasche... 👍
    Dann hab ich einen Platz gesucht, das Navi hatte den richtigen Weg, vorbei an Leslie Schäden und dann war der Weg zweimal von einem Baum blockiert. 🤔Anderen Platz gesucht.... Der passt 👍😎

    Day 2. Batahla afternoon.

    August 9, 2017 in Portugal

    After lunch we caught the bus to Batahla, to see the Dominican monastery built to commemorate the battle that ensured the indépendance of Portugal. (1385)
    A very impressive building. What impressed was
    The stone masonry. A brilliant extravaganza of superb workmanship. It is the most important example of the Gothic style in Portugal with the most important example of medieval stained glass windows.
    In one of the photos you will noticed a cleaned steeple. If only they could afford to clean all the building it would be an extraordinary sight.
    Whilst there we saw the changing of the guard for the war memorial to the fallen of the First World War. I couldn't' resist photographing the intricate lacing of the guards boots.
    A visit to the military museum concluded our visit.
    Tired but pleased we returned to our hotel to prepare for our journey tomorrow to Coimbra.

    Day 2. Morning Alcobaca.

    August 9, 2017 in Portugal

    Why Alcobaca you may ask?. The Cistercian Monastery here was one of the most important and powerful Abbeys in the Cistercian order. It was founded in 1153.
    It has many Azurlejo. The hand painted tiles which. Depict major historical events. The tiles are about 150mm square. Many fine examples here. The church was the first Gothic church in Portugal.
    While wandering around the cloisters we heard this beautiful singing. We arrived at a chapel just as the singing ended. It was a Japonese lady and a falsetto. A male contralto. We spoke to him, Joao Paolo Ferreira. a Brazilian. He sings for the different touring groups. We sat down and he sang for us. A special moment. We continued our tour and shortly after we heard Joao Paolo singing Ave Maria. We met him again and asked if he had a CD. Yes, but in the square when he busks. I asked if he would sing Ave Maria for Shirley but unfortunately he had another appointment.
    Later we located him singing and I bought a CD. He then sand Ave Maria for Shirl who was moved to tears. The events of the last few days had caught up with her.
    A coffee, very good, and a Portuguese custard tart. Delicious.

    Alcobaça

    October 31 in Portugal

    Weiter ging‘s nach Alcobaça, immer noch im Regen, Zendenz aber abnehmend🙌🏼
    Neben einem kurzen Zwischenstop in einem weiterrn Kloster erspähte unser geschärfter Blick 👀 gegenüber aber auch eine kleine feine Konditorei die laut Reiseführer bereits mehrere erste Preise für leckeres Süßgrbäck und kleine feine kulinarische Köstlichkeiten gewann🤤 Als Feinschmecker kann man da unmöglich einfach ohne zu probieren vorbeigehen, also ich sowieso nicht. Also rein da und kurz schnabulieren😊 Hat sich gelohnt, nicht ganz günstig, aber fein👌🏼Read more
