    Thanks for the nice comments. I prefer doing a thread rather than a blog, I find reading blogs gets a bit monotonous I like the banter in a thread. I've done threads on our trips for the last 3 years.
    This trip appears a bit rushed, tried to do and see too much. We had a hectic week before leaving had been away until late wed night and ferry Sat morning, so took a couple of extra days getting across France. Then we got engrossed in Northern Spain. It was supposed to be a Portugese trip but by the time we got to Portugal we were running out of time.
    Not even had time to get the bikes out of the garage, most of the places we have been have not really been suitable for cycling so no great loss.

    You've been to some lovely places, really enjoyed it so far.
    Weather could have been better I guess, but its late in the season.

    ditto, look forward every day to your updates, so many places I didn't know existed, I have been to Portugal several times over the last ten years to visit my expat mate, he never took us anywhere like that!

    Thanks boys and girls, I enjoy doing the trip threads and it gives me a nice record of the trip. Makes me feel good and that it's been worth the effort when people appreciate it

    I also enjoy doing a thread but I sometimes almost give up, cos I think I'm talking to myself, then someone comments, then someone else and I'm encouraged to continue.

    Sooo, if people want threads like this to continue just make an occasional comment (y).

    Love threads like this. It’s what this forum is all about, as far as I’m concerned.

    I should try to do one myself, but I’m a lazy git and leave this kind of thing to my wife (elsewhere).

    At least that sheep loving (thought I'd better put it politely) Welshman doesn't comment too often.:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Many thanks for the thread. We've been in the same area ourselves but you found some nice spots. :)

    And I like to record our trips in a thread too. If I didn't there is no way I could remember where we have been. :)

    We ran in an orienteering competition in Monsanto. It was "interesting" to say the least, made more difficult by greasy cobbles in drizzly rain.

    And then on to Sortelha, light starting to go by the time we got here. The Aire had a logging lorry in it and a tractor and trailer transfering logs over when we arrived, so we found a spot around the back.

    Took me a little while to work out that "beautiful Sepia" wasn't a place in Portugal :LOL:
