    Cascais and Cabo da Roca

    January 17, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Set out on a day trip to Cascais and Cabo da Roca with my lovely Aussie friends Steph and Emily. Headed out by train and spent a good part of the day walking the promenade of Cascais; apparently the richer part of Portugal. Watched as a local spear fisherman brought out his haul onto the beach which he had nicely tucked away into the back of his wetsuit. Looked like something out of a Bond movie. We had lunch and then caught the bus to the most westerly part of the European continent. The road was really windy and when we got there the wind was blowing really hard. Walked the trail to the edge of a cliff and took some great photos. When we got back to Cascais we had a cheese and cracker picnic at a beach viewpoint. Took the train back to Lisbon and went for dinner and then a custard tart, said to be the national desert of Portugal. It was a beautiful day and we walked 13.5 km in the gorgeous sun.Read more
