Very nice, thanks for sharing. :thumb

oldmanb777 02-03-2013 06:13 AM

Great pix, thanks. I have only been to Sintra, and of course Lisbon. Is this something I can do in an easy day? Or how far from Lisbon? I usually only have the day when I'm there.

Dieselpwr 02-03-2013 07:11 AM

Lindo o nosso Portugal. Can't wait to go back in the summer.

Hi, this pics where taken in the north of Portugal, at 400km of lisbon, its not easy to see in a day if you start in lisbon, my advice is at least 2 days and you dont have the time to see everything like you should, i have been to Sintra also, its a great village, its the "romantic village" of portugal, cheers...

A zona do Douro e maravilhosa. Conduzi da Régua até Vila Nova de Gaia pelas estradas velhas no ano passado. Infelizmente foi no carro de aluguer e não de moto.

Volksg 02-22-2013 12:09 PM

Well folks, another trip, this time to Serra da Cabreira, its located in the baixo Minho region at south of the National Park of Gerês, it was a two days trip, with lots of off road and some magnificent landscapes, hope you enjoy it, cheers...

Great to see the part of Portugal I fell in love with, been there a few times.
Back then we used to go offroading with Jeeps and Land Rovers, we had basecamp in Cabeceiras de Basto.
