We have officially left Angel and are homeless, having spent the last 4 nights in Old Blimey camped out in Bec and Dave's sauna :) Whilst there we managed to spend two days playing happy tourists, visiting London Dungeon as well as Madamme Tussards and the Walkie for the ABs vs Australia in the union. Then early Monday, and I mean like 2:30AM EARLY!!! we made our way by bus, and bus, to Stansted airport for our flight into Porto.
Monday saw us explore the old town, which included the Se Cathedral, Bento train station, the remains of the wall among other things. We also climbed the Torre Dos Clerigos for an amazing view over all of Porto. We also had a very interesting time ordering a portugese burger from a local snack bar. Then spent the rest of the day Siesta-ing and eating Portugese chicken. Very enjoyable.
Today we spent much of the day walking along the river before settling into a lovely lunch at Palacio de Cristal of portugese chicken (again! Becs new favourite) and EGG TART! Yummo!!! We then headed back into town where we visited Calem port wine cellar where we treated to a tasting and tour, both very enjoyable. We made a few purchases as gifts as well as a few bad jokes including bec being "tawn" as to which port to purchase. This afternoon we have enjoyed an afternoon of sunburn and watching the hotel owners son chasing the resident dog with
our camera. I guess its all part of the fun of travelling!
Tomorrow we plan to board a 9:00am bus to Lisbon and unless our current hospitality gets the better of us we will update you all from further south in the next day or two.
Untill then here are some current happy snaps....
