An early morning wake up was followed by a short Taxi ride to pick up the hire car. Then we left Porto behind and headed up the Douro Valley on the wrong side of the road. The Douro is a Unesco World heritage grape growing and wine making region. It's not hard to understand why. This place is breathtaking! Our first visit was right up the very top of the valley at a place called Pesseguiro. Our friends from the cork company arranged ...
We left the big bed, the big comfy cushions and the nice fluffy rug today, sad times.... but we had a nice drive along the River Douro and found a nice place to camp for the night. I felt quite sleepy today and just had nice cuddles on the drive and my favourite tea... ...

We drove 50 mins to Sátão from Viseu after restocking for the weekend at the supermarket. A gourmet weekend was in order and it's not disappointed one bit.

It's all too much holiday fun... Time to travel Monday ...
I visited the port aging cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia across
the river from Porto about 10 days ago. Now it’s time to explore the

Wine Region in the Douro River valley starts about 60 miles inland from Port
and extends eastward almost all the way to Spain. Grapes have been grown and
wine has been made in the region at last since Roman times about 2,000 years
