    Porto: River Duoro and beach

    April 8, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Our second day in Porto and the weather was much more friendly for exploring. We wandered along the river, looking down on the little houses below and across at the huge bridges, some of them two tiered because of the really steep banks.
    We enjoyed a nice al fresco lunch to soak up some more sunshine and then had a look at the cathedral, called Sé.
    Our hop-on hop-off tickets were still good from yesterday so we hopped on and rode up to the north of the city to see the castles on the coastline and walk back along the beach. Finished off the day with a bottle of port and a chocolate salami, fancy pantses that we are.

    Beach day in Porto

    August 6, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    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
