We made it home after this tour of the Iberian peninsula, that turned out to be a little bit more than Portugal. This was my first time in Portugal, and a few things come to mind when I look back on it: relaxed, humble, low-key, almost mellow people (especially on the road), white houses, very good English spoken, strong wine, delicious fresh ...
The morning broke with less fog – we could actually see the Dordogne River today.
We're off to the little ancient walled village of Domme today. This quaint town sits upon a large mountain with spectacular views.

Back again for a second visit on the hunt for figs, walnuts and chestnuts. Loads of huge chestnuts but the figs and walnuts not ripe yet, shame as we have to move on! Excellent place alongside the Dordogne for walking and running but the Aire is a little scruffy with building work nearby and untidy ground, still very busy though. Some rain this morning but overall warmer and dryer as we move slowly south, Cahors later ...
