Portugal (Western Europe)

The Sintra area of Portugal has to be one of the most beautiful and magically there is. Full of mountains and mist, twining roads and mystery. Here you can spend a whole bundle of time exploring. There are castles and faeries, some of the best beaches in Portugal.

I was there last year for my step-brother’s 60th birthday celebration when we stayed in Azoi. This year a house and pet sit opportunity came up in Almocogeme – a delightful, friendly large village on the coast.

Outcrop on the Atlantic Coast

The Atlantic coast on this part of Portugal is wonderful for surfing and sunbathing. Visiting Cascais to Praia das Macas, through Praia da Adraga, you will always find local life welcoming and interesting.
