Travel Blogs from Vigo
A couple of good reasons for heading out to the far west are that we have never been to this part of Spain and this is the area where they produce Abariņo wine, one of Jo's favourites. Unlike the south this is very green as it is kept cooler and wetter by the Atlantic weather systems.
First stop was the supermarket in Vigo to buy some local wine. Yes you can do wine tours, and we have done a few, but if all you want to do is try ...
... the border the time is displayed on an overhead gantry. It says it is 11.50 but by my watch it is 12.50. Suddenly it clicks and we realise that Portuguese time is an hour behind Spanish. So we have gained an hour and are now ahead of the original schedule. Sometimes you make your own luck, and sometimes it just happens when you least deserve it.

There were a few options open to us. The hop-on, hop-off bus was €18 each but for €16.48 less at €1.52 we decided to head for the C1 public transport bus. This is a circular bus that takes about 1 hour to complete the circuit of the city centre so it ends up at the same place it started from. On enquiring at the Information desk just outside the port there was only 1 ho-ho bus today and that had departed ...
