    Isn't there a song about Bugles?

    July 12, 2016 in Portugal

    Today is our last full day in Porto and we dexided to take advantage of our house and have a BEACH DAY!!! We go up and ready, grabbed the screen Carla left for us (why?) and headed down to the beach.

    As we approached, we realized everyone had giant screena around them.. And we quickly found out why. As Porto/Miramar is on the Atlantic and near a river, the wind is strong and constant... So the screen came in handy. We all slept on the beach for a bit and Taylor and I made sure to "get in" to the Atlantic Ocean because
    ...
    How cool is it that Taylor and I have been in the Atlantic Ocean on BOTH SIDES?

    After we were mostly frozen, we decided to head into the Miramar city for some food! What we found was fresh Portugese bread (for .80 € and OMG YUM)... And Somersby Cider. For 2€ a bottle. Omg.

    After drinking our lunch, we headed to the supermarket where we picked up some spaghetti and Somersby. Which was 4€ for a 4 pack.

    So we headed back to our apartment to shower, pack, and hang out at Carlas apartment for a bit (where we tried Portugese coffee, beer and chocolate cake and played with their amazing dog Kaisen!) before drinking our dinner!

    We decided to play some card games while we had pre-seperation anxiety from Portugal and trying to figure out how to get to the airport tomorrow morning. We are currently finishing our last Somersby and watching storage wars with Portugese subtitles before bed - and Greece happens in the AM!

    Ps. Shaunessa leaves tomorrow but I don't want to talk about it because that's depressing as sh*t and I don't believe it will happen until it does.

    Ps Have I mentioned how much I love Portugal?

    The Alfred Hitchcock Experience

    August 23, 2016 in Portugal

    A Day at the Beach. And at the Beach a beautiful chapel, look at the Google picture hits when you search for Miramar Beach. The sunset could the beginning of a love story in which the people say: we have still the chapel.
    Yeah, and then comes reality. Waiting for the train, down to the beach, and there a siesta after the couchsurfing event last night. Close your eyes and come to the land of the dreaming story's. But waking up half an hour later you realize that the whole beach is surrounded by a fog. No love story Casablanca style, instead you're in the middle of Alfred Hitchcock's The Fog.
    No one is there anymore, except you're friends...and the dying begins.

    OK, that is a bit too much, and the beach was still beautiful and to see this change in the weather was a bit of what you can expect, when you're on the sea.

    Better is to taste three rounds of tapas with seafood in this country, where they really know how to make it. And the best restaurants are sometimes there were you shouldn't search.

    Schlafplatz vor Porto

    November 12, 2016 in Portugal

    Der Verkehr Richtung Porto ist zäh, die Nacht bricht über uns herein und wir kochen noch eine Kanne Kaffee für die Weiterfahrt.

    Wir werden heute nicht mehr nach Porto fahren und beschließen noch einmal vor den Toren der Stadt zu schlafen. In einem Vorort werden wir am Strand fündig.

    Nach dem Abendkaffee hat Olli Schlafstörungen und kann sein Buch beenden. Das Werk ist eine Lektion fürs Leben. Ein Buch für jedermann. Man atmet es förmlich ein und hat wieder einen neuen Blickwinkel mehr auf dieses kostbare eine Leben. Wirklich rührend und fesselnd zugleich.

    Der Titel ist: Dienstags bei Morrie von Mitch Albom
