We get up, eat breakfast and drink our coffee/tea, shower and start packing our things up. We are on the road by 10am. We are making two stops on the way to the city "Porto" where we are bunking in for 2x nights. The first stop is called “Braga” and the second stop is called “Guimares”.

I know not very exciting but I never eat a whole meal and thought it safer to order small. Luke ordered a Meat Platter with Cheese and Bread. We were so surprised when our meals came out, mine was a hot dog but the dog part was cut length ways in two so to make it look like two ...
