      Praia Fluvial de Unhais da Serra

      June 11, 2022 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Voici une halte qui fait plaisir. En pleine canicule au Portugal 🌞🔥, alors que les journées dans le van sont tout sauf agréables, nous avons trouvé un super spot. 👍

      Ici, c'est un emplacement de parking pour camping-car, complètement gratuit🤑, avec toilettes, douches (extérieures et fraîches, mais avec la chaleur pas besoin de plus 🚿☺️), des espaces verts, de l'ombre et une piscine naturelle de rivière de montagne 🏞️. Autant vous dire, c'était une des journées les plus confort qu'on a vécu de notre voyage. Tout ce qu'il faut en journée pour survivre à la canicule + installation de la terrasse le soir (he oui, on est dans un parking camping-cars), au top. 

      Le soir 🌌 petit passage au bar, c'est rare d'avoir un lieu qui ferme à passé minuit hors saison et hors lieux touristiques, on se devait d'y aller. D'autant plus qu'ils se sont plantés sur l'addition et nous ont fait payer 3€ les 2 pintes 🍻

      Le seul petit regret, c'est de ne pas être resté quelques jours de plus. En effet, nous avons profité de la piscine naturelle, mais à partir du lundi, ils fermaient une écluse en remplissait une piscine naturelle de ~100 mètres (nous, on a plus eu droit à une pataugeoire pour se rafraîchir)

      Schnauze voll

      November 4, 2022 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

      Das waren die Worte der besten Frau heute Morgen. Ich will endlich Mal kein Wasser von oben und keine Heizung anmachen.
      Ok, wir wollen ja eh in Richtung Meer. Die N230 ist wirklich schön von der Landschaft und man kann auch nochmal einen Blick auf den Gipfel vom Torre werden und sieht die zwei Türme bei denen wir übernachtet haben. Ok, mit dem Motorrad wäre die Strecke noch schöner gewesen😇🤣
      Unterwegs nochmal LPG aufgefüllt (0.98€/l) und dann weiter zum ausgesuchten Stellplatz, der leider voll belegt war. Ok, Wochenende und alles kostenlos, sogar Strom, das war fast klar das wir da keinen Platz finden. Das Wenden war dann wegen einer Baustelle schon etwas interessanter.
      Wir haben uns dann entschlossen gleich zum nächsten Wunschplatz weiter zu fahren.

      Serra da Gardunha

      May 24, 2022 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

      Unterwegs auf der abwechslungsreichen Fahrt treffen wir Arbeiter an die Korkeichen schälen. Wir schlendern durch Nisa, überqueren den Tejo und finden schliesslich in der Sierra einen ruhigen Übernachtungskosten in wunderschöner Umgebung. Castel Novo in der Serra Gardunha ist eines der attraktivsten historischen Dörfer.Read more

      Rund 1500 Meter tiefer

      November 2, 2022 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

      Bei der Abfahrt ins Tal wurden die Bremsen ganz schön gefordert. Im Tal an der Tankstelle (1.96€/l) kurz geprüft und fast die Finger verbrannt.
      Wir stehen in einem kleinen Ort auf einem Stellplatz für 3€ am Tag. Wir stehen direkt neben einem rauschenden Bach, der im Sommer einfach gestaut wird und schon hat man ein Freibad! Kalte Außendusche und Toilette sowie Wasser und Entsorgung sind im Preis inbegriffen. Der Ort hat Supermarkt, Bäcker Restaurants die heute alle geschlossen sind und drei Friseure.
      Wir haben gleich für zwei Tage bezahlt.

      Früh auf

      September 25, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

      Heute bin ich vor Sonnenaufgang los. Weil es am Etappenzielort keine Unterkunft gibt und man mit dem Zug an den nächsten Ort muss. Es gibt nur 3 Zugsverbindungen pro Tag. So musste ich die 28 km so planen, dass ich 14:33 an der Haltestelle sein konnte. Morgen gehts dann wieder zurück. Unterwegs ein paar Wimmler!
      Übrigens: für den Weg bis Ourense in Galicien/Spanien ist heute Halbzeit. In Portugal schon drüber.

      Weitsichten

      September 26, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

      Heute bin ich mit den Zug zurück an den letzten Etappenort gefahren. Es folgte eine phantastische Bergetappe mit grandiosen Aussichten über halb Portugal. Ein erhabenes Gefühl. Ich hatte den Eindruck, die Landschaft in Spanien meines letzten Pilgerweges (via de la plata) zu erkennen.
      Eine Gottesanbeterin, Kirsch- und Kastanienbäume und ein São Tiago Tor in Fundão..

      Unhais Da Serra

      November 10, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

      Another stunning drive from our last stop in Spain across the border into Portugal. We dropped around 600m in height and most of the roads were through vast forested areas. The temperature has risen by a few degrees although there are still periods of rain. Tonight's stopover is on an aire pretty much in the centre of town, with well laid out pitches, sinks and washing up areas, picnic tables and a brick BBQ. It's located right next to a largish river with small falls and rapids, fairly fast flowing and quite noisy but soothing at the same time.
      We will move on today towards the West Coast and will drop out of the mountains to hopefully warmer (and drier) weather.

      Grand Roto de Zezére

      April 20, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      Bike touring on a mountain bike trail.
      Marty asked for a time map of when we are meeting my parents, and he looked at me dumfounded when I replied "in three weeks". We have been "on the road" for four days, and it feels like we have been going for weeks as we are getting in the groove  We are actually bike touring.  We left from Lisboa on Friday last week, took the train 150km to Tomar, and then rode our bikes 34km to San Domingos.   The weather was still a bit cold and rainy, so we stayed for three nights in snug beds with a fireplace in Joao's grandparents house.  Marty felt a bit like he was in the Zombie apocalypse, as there is no one around.  Like many villages in rural Portugal (and rural anywhere), young people leave for the cities, and only the old folks are left.  As the last generation dies off, people keep up the family houses and use them as vacation homes.  In San Domingos, we ordered dinner from the cook at the Bernardino Cafe (Joan's Uncles cafe), and she cooked us up a portugese feast.  The bread van came each morn.

      It was a big first day on leaving Sao Domingos and we biked about 50 km.  We didn't intend to, but we biked to a town to get food, and then left town looking for a camp, and were near to the river, just a few hundred feet above it.  We asked for water in a village, and filled a 6L bottle we had found and camped on a logging road in a eucalyptus plantation.  Our small fire was mindful of the blackened woods we had biked through.  The fires last year were widespread and deadly, with flames roaring across valleys and wiping out farms and trapping villagers.  People have shown us pictures of the flames rising above the church spires.  The original mediteranean forests of cork and oak were replanted with pine forests, and within the last 50 years the fast growing eucalyptus forests have been planted and harvested making up 10% of Portugal's export.  So you can imagine that it is a bit of a debate, to keep growing the eucalyptus  (which also suck the water and nutrients faster than other species), or go back to pine and less fire hazard.  We can tell you that there is not information out there about where the fires have been.  Do not tell the tourists where it is black, is an agreed upon principle. 

      Subsequent travel days did not include 50 km.  They did however involve finding a campsite too late in the day, being tired with a BIG hill as our last event, riding up endless hills, leaving the perfect campsite too late in the day, and finding a fabulous trail system, The Grand Roto Zezere, along a river.  The villages along this part of the river have many Xisto (Schist) built houses, modern and ancient that are incredible. Areas that were burned reveal unbelievable old rock walls terracing on hillsides. Yesterday we biked 20km, in addition to a few km of detours, and our last 5km were along an old dirt mining road above the river.   We camped in the dark and quiet (we are usually near a village of some sort and hear the dogs and church bells in the night) had a fire and clambered down to the river for a gaspingly cold swim.

      In all, we are enjoying our travel.  Although we have not bike toured before, we know how to camp, and how to bike, and how to fix bikes, and go on multiday hikes.  We got off the train in Tomar, asked each other which direction we should go, and headed off, hoping for the best.  Marty has accepted that there are few animals, or fish, and has consoled himself with the old villages.  Caleb has stopped telling us he wants to go home, and Jorja is her regular happy self, chatting away in strange languages as she turbo charges Marty's bike. I have to admit, I was exhilarated that my dream of bike touring with my family 30 years after I had bike toured with my family, is actually happening.  Jorja has flowers on her handlebars, and wears a pink dress while biking.  We find wifi for Caleb so he can connect to friends, and Marty drinks cheap white around the occassional fire, and I am thrilled when Caleb calls out "I think the old girl is trying to beat me up this hill" and then promptly overtakes me.

      Very near the top of portugal

      April 26, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

      Up for 17 km. Decent grade, not to hot. We can see the 1993 m summit that is the highest point in Portugal. Camped in Vide on the river and showered in the town hall, swam in the river. Mutiny always a possibility, but beer and coke at the top should help.Read more

      Caleb: At first I disliked Europe and what we were doing (Bike touring) ,but after 3 days of 35 k each my butt ache and legs stopped hurting so bad. Now in total we have done 140 k (don’t try and add up the numbers cuz they don’t add up;) I have mostly liked camping in the mountains/hills because there are zero .0.0.0. People to bother me,it’s a vast world when we trek through the burnt areas of Portugal. Me and my dad figure that all the residents have a rule not to tell tourists where the fire was , if u have no clue what I am talking about there was a fire that went through almost all of Portugal ! Killing 100 people... well I’ll wrap it up soooo I miss am my friends sooooooo much. Byeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!Read more

      Hi Caleb! It looks like you guys are having some cool adventures and I bet the OJ was delicious. Nice - I mean wonderful to see your writing. I like your use of 'triple scoop' words, voice and I was able to create pictures in my mind from your details (I can imagine how your butt ached and I think you are a real champ because I could never picture myself biking like that on holiday)! Take care and just letting you know that all of the Dodd's miss you guys!! XOX
