Set off on a journey and find yourself discovering many hidden treasures that Portugal has to offer – magnificent cathedrals in Lisbon, medieval streets of Obidos, historic villages of Regua with their untouched landscape, the gardens of Evora and the best preserved Roman mosaics in Coimbra. Portugal has a long and dramatic coastline; the fishermen who still make their living at the sea, are as rugged as the cliffs. The fish is fresh and the stories are spellbinding. Portugal prides itself on being a country rich with explorers and discoveries. It is an easy country to travel by car, allowing you, the modern day explorer, to venture off the beaten track finding your own “new land.” When I think of Portugal I think of fish, castles, tiles, rugs, wine and port, rivers, dramatic cliffs and the soulful music of fado.
