Portugal towns most charming so far with lovely sculptures and fountains everywhere. Ponte de Lima was first port of call in the Minhos then a quick visit to Viana do Castello on the coast.
One last thing, yo have to check out http://boschrealestate.co.uk/ for some amazing old abandoned houses, farms and hamlets for sale. We are off to Lisbon this week and then coming back to meet the people that run that cute company for a tour. My favourite so far, simply because of the providence of its name, is on the list of properties over 40k. Near the bottom. Called Moses. Now wouldn't that be a story to write about one day.
Cold beer is calling. Gotta go.
