View over the city of Lisbon
Despite feeling a bit rough (mostly Shaun thanks to the Sangria) this morning after our night out, we all piled in the car for the long drive to Lisbon. The 18 Euro toll for the motorway was also a bit off a shock! We enjoyed some lunch and local custard tarts in the city centre before checking out the sights along the river including a fort in the river and a large monument sculpted with famous historical figures looking out to sea. We then negotiated the winding streets to make our way up to the Castelo de Sao Jorge (St John) for the great views but unfortunately the misting rain had other ideas. By then we were hungry so headed back to town for a great meal at a local Middle Eastern restaurant. Bernie and I sampled the local specialty wine Vinho Verde which is a light white wine that isn’t sparkling but did have an obvious “spritz” to it. We later grabbed some dessert to sustain us for the long journey back to Porto.
