Portugal Wrap-Up: Aveiro, Lagos & Cascais

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
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.IMG_4349IMG_4350IMG_4351IMG_4352IMG_4353IMG_4347IMG_4344IMG_4345

Lagos
                                                                                                                                                  This pretty beach town in the Algarve was one of our favorites.IMG_4393IMG_4394IMG_4395IMG_4399IMG_4400

Cascais
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.IMG_4354IMG_4356IMG_4359IMG_4360IMG_4364IMG_4369IMG_4373IMG_4375IMG_4378IMG_4379
