Hey, how's everyone doing? Good i hope.:)
It has been a while since i last posted a blog entry and there have been good reasons for that. Work and more recently my holidays have kept me away.
About my holidays, for a change i left the island where i'm usually stranded.:P I went on a twelve day trip across the Portuguese mainland.
Started off in Lisbon, capital city, where i stayed for three days. I already knew the city, in fact it's the only place i know in the Portuguese mainland, but nonetheless, i wanted to visit it again. Here is a picture of me near the Torre de Belém, one of the city's and country's landmarks:
Check out teh shades
Next i headed south to Faro, capital of Algarve, a region known for it's warm weather and great beaches. I stayed there for six days. That gave me the opportunity to get to know not only Faro, but also other places like Albufeira, home of some of the country's best beaches. Here i am in Albufeira:
Couldn't wait to get in the water...
For the last three days i headed towards the north, to Portugal's second biggest city, Porto. Porto was a really pleasant surprise, it's a beautiful city, filled with beautiful old buildings and bathed by the amazing river Douro, in which shores is produced the world known Port Wine. Here is a picture of me near the D. Luiz I bridge and a picture of Avenida dos Aliados:
Those are painted statues, in case you're wondering...
Came back home yesterday, tired of all the walking and long train trips, but really happy with what i've experienced in this holiday. I had a really good time.:)
Btw, my eyes are not closed in those pics.:lol: They's just semi shut due to the strong sunlight.
Well, this was an update on my whereabouts. See you guys around.:)
