I am in love with this city. I'm crazy about the good food and besides that, my kids have Portuguese blood in their veins. This is one of the oldest cities in the world and certainly the oldest in Western Europe. There are four interesting areas in the center of Lisbon. Belem, Bairro Alto & Estrela, Baixa & Avenida and Alfama. For many years I lived partly in Cacilhas opposite the Tagus. More about it later!
Hi folks, almost three weeks since my last blog update have passed. Have visited many great cities in the last three weeks. One of the highlights was Barcelona in Spain. Have spent 3 full days there and really enjoyed this.In addition there is the great weather I had during my stay! The first day I made a bike tour through Barcelona.
A great way to see Gibraltar is to make a bike tour. Gibraltar, British Overseas Territory and headland on Spain's south coast. It’s dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426m-high limestone ridge. First settled by the Moors in the Middle Ages and later ruled by Spain.
Two days in Portimão, the largest city in the western Algarve. This was not the first time I am in this beautiful port city. Myself I am a true fan of the Algarve. It is the climate, the sea, the great scenic views and do not miss this amazing tastes from the Algarve. I was in mid-October 2018 in Portimão, temperature and water still pleasant and just a few tourists.
