No beach for us after all as we went to the mountains and spent a few days at Serra_da_Estrela visiting some of Portugal's most traditional villages and medieval castles. We had a wonderful time, did a lot of sightseeing and ate some great food! Here are some photos to give you an idea of what we were up to! ;-)
I also read a lot of books so tomorrow I go back to book reviewing. I really feel I should take these breaks more often!
