    Leixoes, Porto, Portugal

    September 1, 2017 in Portugal

    Oporto, has an expansive beach, many parks, and a long promenade next to the water.
    In the city we viewed a medieval Cathedral and buildings with its famous blue tiles.
    Th city was preparing for the Red Bull Air Race on the Douro River. We were able to view several planes practicing. They were doing stunts and flying between markers on the water.
    Next was a tour of the port wine producer Pocas, which was established in 1918. We learned about the different stages of production as we walked beside huge oak casks and barrels. At the end of the tour we went into a cellar room for tasting.Read more

    Was für ein toller Tag!
    In der Früh ein paar Regentropfen- aber kaum in Matosinhos ausgestiegen kam die Sonne zurück. Am Strand entlang spazierend zeigte der Himmel eine interessante Zeichnung; es wurde gesurft, gepaddelt - und das im kühlen Atlantik.
    Und dann ging es nach Vila Nova de Gaia - der Portwein rief mich! Zuerst noch eine Stärkung - Gambas in Zwiebelsud und ein Glas Wein und dann hieß es eine Entscheidung zu treffen denn ein Keller nach dem anderen lockte. Es wurde Augusto‘s - und es war die Richtige. 2 junge Portweine und 2 schon 20 Jahre alte, jeweils in weiß und rot; die beiden „alten“ waren einfach nur gut.
    Ein Spaziergang über die Brücke „Dom Luis I“, hinauf in die Oberstadt mit dem Funicular - tolle Ausblicke inklusive.
    Den Einkauf ins Apartment gebracht, kurz ausgeruht um dann erneut los zu gehen.
    In die wohl schönste Buchhandlung ever! Auch J.K. Rowling war dieser Meinung - danach schrieb sie die Harry Potter Bücher. Ich nehme mir als Erinnerung „Die Geschichte von der unbekannten Insel“ von Jose Saramango (Nobelpreisträger)mit - seine portugiesische Reise hat mich schon sehr beeindruckt
    Ein Afogato in einer Eisdiele nebenan und der Tag war perfekt!

    Beach day in Porto

    August 6, 2017 in Portugal

    Breakfast at the hostel was surprisingly good! After skyping mum and dad we caught an uber to Serralves Villa where it was free entry on Sunday mornings...win! We quickly made our way to the Art Deco mansion and walked around the gardens. There were lots of sculptures to look at and movies playing in little display houses. We ate lunch in the tea house before catching an uber to Matosinhos. We walked along the foreshore path and lay on the sand for awhile. It wasn't very warm as there was a cool wind, so we headed to the street with plenty of fish cafes. The smell of fish cooking over the coals was absolutely delicious. We had what we think was the best salmon we've ever eaten!! Or maybe it was just really salty and crispy 🤤Read more

    Day 3 - Porto

    November 1 in Portugal

    Arrived in Porto at about 7.00am. Up at 7.30 and full breakfast.
    Picked up coach which took us on a tour of Porto and then down to boat for a trip down the River Douro to see 6 bridges. Not very exciting!. Back on coach for more sightseeing - lots of rubbish everywhere. Then onto a Port wine vineyard. Tour of where the Port is produced and to sample a white and tawny port. White was very sweet and tawny a little bland for my taste. I'll stick to good old M&S ruby at Christmas. Back to ship, Palm was queuing so didn't bother. J had snooze I went to gym for a 30 mins run, 10 mins on bike and warm down on cross trainer.
    4.00pm spa treatment - back, shoulder and neck massage. Tough old life 🤔
    The spa treatment was brutal. How a very petite Philopino can inflict so much pain, I am at a loss. I have to say I did feel better after it.
    We then had an assessment of fat and water retention by Fyn who is a top man in the world of fitness and diet. Only 22 but boy does he know his stuff. We went to a seminar a couple of days ago and he explained all about acid and alkaline in the body and how we needed be much more alkaline.
    To be fair we both came out very well. J had 2.5 litres of toxic water and I had 1.5 litres. Both our body fat levels were very good - amazing! He advised a detox and focussing in on cutting out acid foods and looking at foods that give you alkaline. Game on I think!
    Just about time to get changed and down for a well deserved dinner.
    Filled our boots at dinner with 3 courses! Not huge amounts but enough.
    Went into Neptune Lounge for evening show, first one for the onboard troupe. Excellent show singing and dancing to popular artists. The Neptune was packed and they got a good ovation. They also had to it all again at 10.30 for the later dinner seating.
    Too knackered to do much more so up to room with newly acquired earplugs. Hoping for a better 🌃.
