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.

Rainy Day in Porto

A travel blog entry by tnanoble on Oct 27, 2015

... get my Iphone out to look at where we are on the map and we are ages away from where the river leads out to the ocean. A lot further than we realised anyway. But we decide to kick on as we can see it in the distance and we notice the huge waves crashing over, and that’s definitely something I wanted to see. The weather is on and off between sunny, cloudy and rain, but we have our rain jackets on so we aren’t too bothered if it does rain. As we ...

To the north of Portugal we go

... a personal fan and lamp!

We enjoyed another free walking tour (guided by a trusty Portuguese speaking Irishman) and got introduced to some amazing local food and drink, including Francesinha. I'm not even 100% certain what this delight contains but it was lathered in cheese and sauce and absolutely yummy! Of course we couldn't be in Porto without trying some Port Wine too. I loved the ...

Today we toured Oporto as they call it here. This city has a rich history dating back to the Phoencians who established a settlement here in the 8th century BCE; the Romans later founded the town of Portus ("port") in the 1st century BCE. The city lent support to the explorations of its native son, Henry the Navigator, in the 15th century, and Portugal owes its constitutional government to the Liberal Revolution of 1820 that began here. We started with a drive around the town; to the ...

... amazing tiled murals they are well worth a visit. We wondered for several hours visiting the Cathedral tower “ Terreiro Da
Se” and Lello Bookshop which is featured in the movies of Harry Potter, the book shop was amazing but unfortunately the photo police were out and pictures were forbidden unless you were sneaky. After the book store we visited the night markets and a coffee shop before finding somewhere for ...

"God, this port is disgusting"

... bread with cheese and smothered in sauce. Pretty good, but I could only eat like a third of it. After lunch, we left the tour and walked across the river to sit and take pictures of the town. We were tired from walking all day, so we just sat for while. Then we went to do some free Port tastings. Porto makes a ton of port, which is sweet desert wine. The white port was absolutely vile, but the red port was good. We ...
