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.

Day 12 - Where have all the tourists gone? We know

A travel blog entry by spydah on Sep 12, 2014

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.

Driving into Porto we couldn't believe anyone would like this place. Very industrial port city and all we saw coming in was smog. We were warned the traffic would be a nightmare so stayed on the freeway as much as possible to get into the main area. of course arrived at 5.30 so timed it well for peak hour and stayed a 20 min walk into The centre. Beautiful tiled buildings, heaps of tourists, it is known as a ...

... a month and a half into our backpacking trip living off of staple foods like bread, sandwich's, bread, water, wine, bread, pasta, bread and did I mention bread. Stuff that keeps us going. Our appetite has evolved from overly fed Americans to a humble backpacker diet. We were in need of some wholesome good food. There was this spot literally around the corner (near where we asked the guy to use his phone) that was always busy when we passed by it. Annie looked it up online, did some ...

The Birthplace of My Port Preoccupation

... Pedro drove me around and pointed out some of the most beautiful night views I have ever seen. The hills on either side of the river make it look like the buildings are stacked on top of each other, with row after row of lights. Shortly after, I headed back to the hotel to get some sleep and get to the airport early the next morning.

I got to the airport early to hit up ...

... color), tawnies (brown in color) and vintage (usually reddish and kept for a very long period of time). I learned that the rubies are kept in giant vats, while tawnies are kept in smaller barrels. Vintage wines must be bottled up and stored in a dark room at a constant temperature. We weren't even allowed to see the vintage because the amount of people on our tour could mess up the temperature in the room and lead to problems with the wine aging. After we got ...
