Up to the Douro ValleyApril 26, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C
We always take a weekend trip during our two week Lisbon stay. We haven’t been to the Douro Valley in a few years, and it seemed like a great time of year, so here we are. Class was over at 12:30, we were at the airport by 2, in our rental car about an hour later.
The drive was straightforward, except for the fact that I first went to the CASA da Azenha, instead of the QUINTA da Azenha. Luckily they are only 10 km apart! This is a centuries’ old renovated stone house up and looking right over the river. It is close to two good restaurants, so no driving for food is necessary. I am right now sitting on a terrace looking out at the scene you see in these pics. Joe is resting. I think it’s a no brainer who made the better decision!Read more
