A fun, quick Ascension weekend in Portugal. First time for all of us to this country and we loved it. A great beach vacation combined with a beautiful, historic capital city of Lisbon.
We stayed right on the beach in Costa de Caparica. Great board walk and beautiful beaches that stretched for miles. Jess and the girls took a surfing lesson and we spent one whole day just walking and relaxing. That day included an accidental walk through the nude beach with Sadie. 😬
Of course we did a bike tour of Lisbon. Really hilly and glad to have the ebike. They were setting up for All Saints that starts on the 1st of June. Looks like a party all month. At the end of the day, we had dinner in town and rank ordered the 7 bike tours we have done in European countries the last 26 months. A little bit of difference among us but our very first bike tour in Paris was the favorite. Just made me feel so grateful for all we have experienced together.
Spent one day going into Sintra. Temperatures were really hot and fires were breaking out so the roads to the palaces were closed. The coast is spectacularly beautiful. Went to the western most point of continental Europe as well. Southern Europe we will be back!
Rented 2 beds and a head for 10 euro!
