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.

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.

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.
