Portugal Travels

Photographs from last year’s visit to Portugal were never posted so I am planning a bumper edition of Portugal posts this year!

Flying from Gatwick to Lisbon is an easy way to travel to Portugal from the UK. In 2017 we flew into Lisbon and set off across the wonderful Vasco da Gama Bridge, but before long it was pelting with rain. This year we thought we would try again, only the torrential rain on the bridge was at night – you can imagine the nightmare. In 2018 we arrived safely, somehow, at the wonderful Pousada in Palmela in time for a delicious dinner and a very comfortable night at the start of another eagerly anticipated visit to Portugal.
