Wednesday, 27 July 2016 – Day 42 – Estoril, Cascais to OPorto

Up at 7.00 and finished my packing as this was my last day in this beautiful place. I have certainly been to a lot of cafes/restaurants and eaten some marvellous food especially the Portuguese custard tarts and other yummy pastries – plus drank lots of coffee and beers and sangria.

Mark and Terri picked me up at 10.00a.m. and went to the post office for me to send some clothes home as my luggage was getting heavy! and then went to a lovely Pastelaria – Garrett do Estoril. What a wonderful display of cakes. Of course, we selected some and enjoyed what would be the last eating/drinking with Mark and Terri.

It was back into the car to take the “kids” home.


Mark’s and Terri’s kids – Onslow, Buck and Cha Cha

We then drove to Lisbon. We made good time and parked the car. We went to the wrong train station so on the Metro to the right one, the Cais do Sodre station.


Said goodbye to Mark and Terri. They certainly showed me lots of lovely places and shared lots of meals with me around Cascais and the nearby attractions.  Thank you so much. Will be strange being by myself once more.


I caught the 2.00p.m. for Campenha (OPorto – north of Lisbon). It was about 10 minutes late in leaving but then we set off. I arrived in Campenha at 5.00p.m.  Caught a taxi to my accommodation at the Lusitana Hotel. (Room 223).  I went for a short walk for a beer and then back, showered and went to bed by 10.00p.m.
