We kind of stumbled across this hotel after happily staying in a youth hostel but desiring a double (instead of a tiny twin) bed. The price was fair, $40eu for two. Private bath, and surprise to us private patio (with no view). This hotel is in the heart of the Bairro Alto district. Literally, blocks from the "view point" and art / night life / restaurant district. Best of all, they had no problem storing our bikes for 3 nights right in the front lobby...the staff was beyond nice (spoke English) and respectfully kept our room very tidy. The night receptionist was an older man...so kind, fun...we would recommend and stay here again.

Had we stopped? I looked out the window and we were still steaming along ,although not quickly, but the sea was calm. Why can't it always be like this!! The sun was shining but it was a chilly 13C on the open decks. It warmed up later to 16C. ...
... about me, but this time I can pretty much understand them. Have they said anything about me? Not that I know of. I'm getting skinny! Probably because I'm hitting that 2,000 calorie-per-day mark. I don't know when the last time I hit THAT was. Ah, I need more coffee. Maybe I'll go walk to wake up. I've been sleeping pretty decently lately, then tomorrow it's on to Paris! I've got to get up at 6 AM to leave. I'm so pumped for good food, especially for that ...
... here the topic turned to why they were visiting Portugal.
It turns out they were on a commemorative trip honoring Mendes. The man was Jewish and had been saved by Mendes when he was just four. His family was living in Belgium and they were some of the lucky people who made it out of Europe via Portugal.
I shook his hand and asked for a photo. What an amazing story.
... It took some time, but we made it.
After getting some food we were off to Lisbon. Our destination the first day, that took us 3 to get too :) so glad it did though. The drive was short. It was a raining day, to match how we all felt.
We made it to where the boys would park the car for the night at the ferry crossing to Lisbon. Lisbon would ...
