Over-run with tourists

Disappointingly tacky. The setting is very photogenic, but it's over-run with tourists. Tourists gawping at other tourists isn't my idea of a fun holiday.

Porto (or Oporto to some) is a must-see for visitors to Portugal, and our main reason for staying in Viseu was that it was fairly close to Porto. Up till now we'd been pleasantly distracted by the attractions at our doorstep, but we decided this would be the day that we'd drive the 130km to Porto. As already mentioned, the Portugese motorways are …

... could they do?

Back on board, we had a bit of lunch and sat by the pool for a few hours (in the shade). I’m reading a wonderful book Catherine the Great, Portrait of a Woman, by Robert K Massey. SO GOOD!!!

Not too far into the passage we entered very thick fog, which isn't pleasant at the best of times but when there are large numbers of lobster pots to dodge it makes it all the more taxing.

We were open to a pregnancy in April but were not prepared for it. I am not prepared for a baby now but I am still open to it. Yesterday Alfonso and I had an open and honest conversation about how we felt, the upcoming journey on the Camino and life thereafter. I ...

Down time today-slept in without an alarm clock. After breakfast we took the complimentary shuttle into the city which is a few miles away. We decided to get on the "hop on-hop off " yellow bus to see other parts of the city, as we did in Lisbon. An interesting twist on this trip was they played Portuguese music between the taped descriptions of the landmarks, a nice touch in my opinion.
