Up nice and early to get packed and ready to go. Car collecting us at 8:30 to take us directly to London's Stansted airport. Of course our suitcases needed quite a bit of re-shuffling for correct weight given Ryanair to Lisbon is a maximum of 15kg. Left cold cold London and our wonderful London family :-) for our 11:55 flight to Lisbon. Arrived in sunny hot Lisbon, Portugal. This weather is very similar to home. All passengers on ...

And my fav country I've visited in Europe to date. If only we made it to the beach for a swim. But there is always next ...
... the Iberian peninsula that it is today. The Portuguese attribute this sort of phenomenon to be outside of the people’s control, it’s just how things came to be. There isn’t a strong drive to put the blame on themselves, or to fix it. Today, Portugal is one of the less financially stable countries of the European union. Instead of trying to rework the nation from within to boost their economy, you see a sort of stagnant state. Young people ...
