    October 8 in Portugal

    We travelled up the Duoro river through vineyards carved into the sides of the valley. The Duoro is quite beautiful, and we climbed up high to see some splendid views of it. There were a few river cruise boats on it as the river is navigable as far as the Spanish border. We reached the beautiful town Lamego and then climbed up and up and up to reach the campsite we were planning on staying at for the next 2 nights. A first gear job to reach the top! What a find! The campsite is situated overlooking the town and is next to a winery that produces fizzy wine. Say no more!!!!!!! We received a very warm welcome at the site from the owner. Not many pitches, and they quickly filled up after our arrival. Fleeces were needed in the evening. Next day we wandered from the back of the site along to a shrine overlooking the town, 689 steps up. We walked down the steps and explored the town, seeking out the castle up winding steep narrow streets. The lady in the information office was so enthusiastic and helpful, and gave us so many things to see - many of them chapels and churches- we did not look at all of them! For lunch we had a sandwich and glass of fizzy wine for 4 euros! Don't usually drink during the week, but we were in a place where the wine is made, so had to be done!!!! After clambering back up the 689 steps we visited the winery next to our campsite. We were shown around the winery and saw the 1000s of bottles stored in the cellars. Paradise!! Only the 2 of us and a couple from Denmark on the tour. Of course, we had to taste the wine after seeing how it was made.Read more

    September 12 in Portugal

    Nach langem Hin und Her haben wir uns auf Empfehlung eines jungen Portugiesen auf den Weg ins Dourotal gemacht. Für 140 km bei 36 Grad brauchten wir fast 5 Stunden - aber es war sehr beeindruckend. Der Tag endet auf einem traumhaften Stellplatz in herrlichem Ambiente.

    Bom Jesus do Monte

    October 2, 2016 in Portugal

    Unsere App "Scout Navi" funktioniert nicht so, wie Heidi sich das vorstellt. Eigentlich ganz banal: Ich hatte bis dahin nicht nicht wirklich verstanden, wie die App funktioniert und ein komplett falsches Ziel programmiert. ☹️☹️☹️

    Das ist dann ein Ereignis, wo die Kommunikation für einige Stunden bei uns zum Erliegen kommt und ich mir durchaus wieder vorstellen kann, wieder Junggeselle zu sein 😜

    So haben wir etwas besichtigen können, was eigentlich nicht geplant war: Hinauf zur Wallfahrtskirche führt eine pittoreske Treppe.

    March 9 in Portugal

    Vendredi, 9 mars 2018
    Notre cc se fait copieusement arroser cette nuit et le même temps nous accompagne toute la journée. Il nous faut un musée qu'on peut visiter à l'abri. Guimarães est considéré comme le berceau du Portugal. C'est une belle ville médiévale avec un château fort et un palais ducal, magnifiquement reconstruit. Dans la chapelle São Miguel fût baptisé le 1er roi portugais Afonso Henrique. Deux autres églises jalonnent notre parcours médiévale: N.D. de l'Espérance et celle de N.D. Da Oliveira sur la très belle place de S. Tiago où se trouve aussi le resto pour notre diner: le Buxa. Nous rejoignons la région du Douro et son vignoble vers Mesão Frio en traversant un petit col. Nous longeons le fleuve en amont jusqu'à Peso da Regua et grimpons à Lamego où nous voulons prendre nos quartiers. Nous profitons d'une trêve de pluie et allons voir le Sanctuaire de N.D. dos Remédios. Un escalier double de 614marches y conduit ( une copie du Bom Jesus de Sameiro?). L'église n'est pas très grande mais superbement décorée en style baroque. Notre place de stationnement jouit d'une vue sur la ville fortifiée de Lamego.Read more

    August 2, 2017 in Portugal

    After leaving Pinao , we traveled to Lamego for lunch. The most significant moment in Lamego's history was in 1139, when the nobles declared Afonso Henriques to be Portugal's first king. The most striking building of Lamego is the sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Remedies which stands above the town, on the Monte de São Estevão. We somewhat foolishly climbed many hundreds of steps on a very hot day to the top. On the way back to our accomodation we thought we would not need the GPS - big mistake! We circled around and around Regua, until we eventually stopped and consulted Dr Google who got us home - hot and very flustered!Read more
