    Wir fuhren wieder zur lesson nach Caparica, diesmal mit 5 Personen. Heute wurden wir nicht mehr gepusht sondern mussten die Wellen selber anpaddeln- und zwar die Grünen ( ungebrochene Wellen ) ! Ganz oft bekommt man die Welle zwar nicht, da man zu langsam war oder den Zeitpunkt zum aufstehen verpasst , allerdings war auch dies Eibe gute Erfahrung , da man einfach ein Gefühl für die Wellen bekommt !
    Eine wirklich gute Welle hatte ich dann auch bekommen und es war ein unglaubliches Gefühl die Welle mit zunehmen, den drop down zu fühlen und zu merken wie man beschleunigt wird😍

    Anschließend waren wir noch in einem ziemlich coolen Surfer-Café ,,AHOI”. Dort gab es einen leckeren frisch gepressten Saft und ein leckeres Sandwich. Außerdem besorgte ich in der Stadt noch Postkarten - aus Kork !

    Costa da Caparica

    October 21, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We moved here because access into Lisbon was quicker on public transport than from Cascais - crossing via the suspension bridge.
    We took a bus and ferry ride to Lisbon (Belem) and walked along the river to the city centre. The city did not disappoint - very beautiful and once again hilly. We enjoyed a nice meal in the artists quarter and in late afternoon we took a walking tour through the old moorish town below the castle. Guy our guide was brilliant and informative and most passionate about his love of the city. We tried the local spirit brewed by the locals and sold from their house window in the old town -very sweet with a cherry base.Read more

    Setúbal Odyssee

    September 29, 2016 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    My last day in Portugal started out to be a bit of a fail. Originally, Jacqueline and I wanted to do a day trip to Porto. We already knew that we were going to be on a tight schedule, as trains and busses from Lisbon take around three hours, but we decided we could do it if we just got up early enough. However, when we couldn't even book the tickets ahead, we had to accept that there would be no Porto for us.
    Instead, we chose to go to Setúbal, having read that it was only 50 minutes away and that trains ran at least hourly. It turned out that they didn't, so we decided to take a ferry to Cacilhas, from where busses were supposed to run every 15 minutes - no chance. Even after having traveled to different countries in Latin America and Asia, we couldn't believe how much information on public transportation varied and how wrong each of it was. Not even the employees at the ticket counters gave you right answers to your questions.
    After another little labyrinth to visit the peninsulas main attraction, the Cristo Rei, and out of pure frustration already waiting for the next ferry to bring us back to Lisbon, we found another little place called Copa da Caparica with a decent beach and gave it a try. We were absolutely amazed to get there and back without completely getting lost, so in the end at least that place was worth the trouble.
    We almost didn't care anymore about the frat party at the other side of the street (the third in five nights), which was so loud that it was hard to sleep. But still we were glad to be offered earplugs by a roommate.
