No real narrative for this week’s posting, just photos of a few other places visited during January in Portugal. About time since we’re now on our way back from spending February/March in the US.
Aveiro is a cute town along Portugal’s coast, noted for its canals, “the Venice of Portugal”. Nearby is the factory and showroom for Vista Alegre, the famous maker of fine dinnerware and porcelain. Tanya was in heaven.
Lagos This pretty beach town in the Algarve was one of our favorites.
This upscale beach town is only about 30 minutes by train from Lisbon and has long been a place for the well-to-do to spend weekends and have second homes. Naturally, Jay and Tanya thought this would be a perfect place to pick up a suitable winter cottage along the seaside. Unfortunately, any of the places we thought would be really cool were going for about 1.3 million euros. Long-term living in Portugal does not look like it’s in our future.
