I know that the headphones are sweat proof and flexible, and are sold using promo shots of healthy young adults roaming about outdoors being young and healthy. I just came to the premises from 2 months in Portugal!
The Sporting Benfica stadiums in Lisboa are pretty cool for all the ‘soccerlovers’.
I felt a pang of nostalgia reading this. We stayed up north about 2 hours away from Porto. Please do not have the finances to do all of it. So this makes it imperative I visit there. I really seek for to go soon. Although, I am having a hard time deciding whichI seek for to visit. My great grandparents migrated to Hawaii for the Azores and Madeira.
I would like to find cruise ship that visits both and Lisbon but what I find is either the Azores or Madeira and maybe Lisbon.
Top-notch way is by air.
I recommend this website to find the cheapest flight rates. Lisbon and Porto are very well served by airline connections from all over Europe and on p of that from the, South America and Africa. Thank you.) I gonna be taking many notes from this. Certainly, I have searched and searched for great articles on Portugal, that said, this beats them all!! We leave for Portugal in 2 weeks! Needless to say, we might be in Porto for 4 days, Lisbon 5 days…I already feel it won’t be enough time.
Essentially, glad I found your blog and I am planning for Portugal at the moment. Thanks! I am flying in from the in mid May. And now here’s the question. In case you are going to get a somewhat thorough feel of Lisbon, Comporta and Porto, what amount days in tal you will recommend?
I got back 10 days ago.) I went to Tanzania.
Dreaming of my next trip I looked up the Azores and saw the weather in December is not great.
I’ll have to find another vacation time to make it work! Kilimanjaro was amazing and the safari great! Consequently, I’m moving to PortugalPortugal from the US in January for work and any info on day to day living as well as things to do is always appreciated. That’s right! Loved this article! I’m so excited to experience this country! We visited Portugal this summer -and loved it. All with a wonderful square with restaraunts and good wine. Now look. One of my favorite wns was Evora. Now look, the span of history was fascinating…19th century buildings, gothic cathedral and bone chapel, Roman temple, and megalithic standing stones.
Great article with beautiful pictures.
I am living in the Algarve since 2007 and started a website with info and rentals.
I just wanted to add that even in the middle of August lots of us know that there are hundreds of places to visit or to stay, where you are away from the crowds and find peace and quiet. Look, there’re many beautiful areas -I did a driving ur once through the Douro valley down to Porto which was beautiful and later continued down through the Alentejo down alone the wild and stunning west coast to the Algarve. People are very friendly and yes do speak great English. I will tag your blog on my fb page. I do love the Algarve but look, there’re many other areas worth a visit as you say. It is love your write up for Portugal. I run a holiday business renting out villas and apts in the Algarve and was doing this for I dont need to wait another 7 years for next visit 😉 Btw. Not -bacalhau a braz.
I ve been in Portugal twice -my first time was in 2008 and the second one this year. Normally, with a bit more time and money, hop on a flight to Azores for a few days for a true nature therapy. For example, personally, To be honest I always recommend Porto, Lisbon and Alentejo‘s coast. They’re all memorable in different ways. You’ll get a pretty great idea of what Portugal really is, I’d say if you are able to go to these three places. Can you suggest a great beach with waves in Sao Miguel? Known we are coming from the staying 12 days doing best in order to see as much as possible with some relaxation how many days will you suggest for the Azores and the mainland?
a bunch of us are planning to visit Portugal next year.
I loved your article and ok notes. Of course we’ve done bus urs and river cruises but will like to try renting a couple of places and going on day trips. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… Is this even possible to do? There gonna be as many as 7 couples so we’d need a few houses/apartments. My son in law has already introduced us to the addictive custard tarts!! A well-known fact that is. For more information click this link: 100. Childhood dream to visit and experience my birth father’s Portuguese bloodline of where they originated from. That in itself will be so meaningful to me. I have yet to do the genealogy to know exactly where my grandparents and great grandparents originated from by ship to Hawaii. I am thankful and love all that is shared of my heritage.
It’s a goal to make my dream a reality! Hello I have just read your blog which was very interesting, we are preparing to cascais in June and staying at the grand villa real hotel while there we plan to eat well and hope to find some good restaurants,what do you recommend for all price ranges high end dining to local cuisine. Thanks for your feedback Laura. Besides, I found the bone chapel for awhile being that I was there all by myself! Loads of beautiful places to go and things to do, I can understand when we start talking about our country it’s difficult to stop. Thank you very much for your suggestions Teresa, I’m talking about great!
Hi me and my friend are planning to go to Portugal in July.
Plus I heard about this little historic village which used to be a slavery site and that now turned into a church and name among the leaders of the freedom a saint, Would you happen to know where that is?
In which city is the nightlife the liveliest, as for the nightlife. I know it gonna be an uristic time of the year any suggestions of beautiful sceneries to go to avoid a tad of the crowd? Exactly how many days in Madeira do you suggest? Notice that any good hiking sites you recommand?
We need to go hiking in the Madeira as well.
I am writing to recommend a few sites North of Porto, far from the sunworshiping golf life of southern Portugal.
Porto, Braga, Vila de Conde, Ponte de Lima, Barcelos….all are wonderful, far from the urist crowds, and are relatively close to one another. I went to Lisbon for my Honeymoon. Now let me tell you something. I had fish for almost any meal and I never for any longer being that they can cook it in so many different ways. Portugal fit the bill and it could not are better. We wanted a European country that had great history, wasn’t amid the typical locations for people to go honeymooning, had amazing food, and was relatively inexpensive. Seriously. Food was ridiculously good and the fish was amazingly fresh.
You really can’t beat $ 9 Salmon fillets bigger thence my face. Sunsets were gorgeous, the people were friendly and they did all speak English. Did you know that the history is great and everything there’s old and beautiful. Of course, we originally weren’t intending to go but had this particular great time at the Aquarium that we decided to check it out. A well-known fact that is. It was huge and amazing. With all that said… Accordingly the Lisbon Zoo is top-notch I have ever visited. Like everything else there. We went in May and had an amazing time. For only Sao Miguel, I actually recommend at least 4 5 days to fully take it in. Check my article on the ‘4day’ itinerary of Sao Miguel to have a better understanding. It depends on how many islands you seek for to visit, as for the overall timings of the trip.
