Great site for a short city break; plenty of trees, good access, hardstanding and services but lots of showers (of the rainy variety).
We were determined to explore Lisbon so we donned winter gear, grabbed the camera and set off anyway. Caught the bus outside the camp gates into city centre. In parts the journey was so bumpy we were lifted out of our seats more than once. Mr H and I took a firm grip of the seats in front of us and enjoyed the white-knuckle ride without the extortionate ticket price! So armed with a 48 hour pass that covered us for tours around the city as well as public transport our explorations began.
Plenty to see, around every corner a suprise, sculptures, stunning old and new buildings, palaces, fountains and even imaginative graffiti.
Of the 260 photos we took I have selected just a few to give a flavour of this vibrant city.
Really nice to get a proper shopping fix, didn't dare go in the mega-posh designer shops so just admired the window displays from the safety of the top deck of our tourist bus. Best purchase of my mad city jaunt? Tea lights from Ikea! Oh how I have missed my scented candles. I have learned a girl can go without many things during our adventures but I refuse to travel without scented candles, Molton Brown products, Clinique cosmetics, hair colour and crystals (other products are available I'm told). High maintenance? Not me!
We then travelled North to the Orbitur Gala site near Figueira da Foz for 2 nights http://www.orbitur.com/.
Nice tidy site, near the beach but Mr H spent most of the first night helping to dig a French motorhome out of a sandy pitch and it rained for most of the next day with more rain forecast. Same weather picture further North so we've decided to head East back to Spain!
