Settling on a place to tour is always a fun discussion. We have two weeks – the typical American amount of time for vacation – and wanted to visit a place that was small enough to enjoy in two weeks. We started with Ireland – but Janet had already toured there. We didn’t want to spend too much time traveling – and somewhere in Europe seemed like a good option. Neither of us have been to Portugal. Several of our friends seconded the idea and the decision was made.
Next up: Portugal! Our intention is to ride from Lisbon to Porto – tasting good food and sampling wine along the way. We plan on using the The Portuguese Way or Caminho Portugués – one of the Camino De Santiago Pilgrimage routes. – as our basic route plan. We have already begun to make changes to the route and we haven’t even started yet!
Off to pack up the bikes – ready for an early flight and day of travel. See you in Portugal!
Enjoy the ride.
