Beautiful Portugal – 1st episode


My stay in Portugal was not reduced to Lisbon, and thanks to our friends, Rita and Sofia, we visited the Western part of Portugal, around the city of Cascais and the famous surf-beaches from Guicho – that area is quite wild, few buildings (due to the instability of the soil – too much sand) and a lot of sun and wind. Perfect for surf, yeah. Also we passed through Estoril and its famous city center, casino and yacht’s harbor, we passed near some (still imposing) old forts that remind us what a naval force was Portugal, centuries ago. Enjoy the photos.

We left from Rita’s wonderful terrace:

I hope you enjoyed this virtual trip… in the next one you’ll see our destination point, which was a nice surprise… a beautiful beach and a wonderful restaurant, away from touristic noise…
