Heading to Portugal for Christmas

Well we've heard it said several times on the Good Morning Portugal show that we should see Portugal in the winter before deciding where to live, so tomorrow we will drive down there from Germany in our little car!

Earlier this week, I was feeling a little nervous about the long drive through several countries with various restrictions, and nothing booked other than our first night in Orleans, France. But now I feel excited. Very excited! We will probably spend a week in São Pedro de Moel, another week Setúbal and then Christmas and New Year somewhere in the Algarve. We hope our children will fly in from England and Berlin to see us there, so we will need to find a nice big apartment overlooking the sea! 🙂

Perhaps I will share some updates from the places we visit.

Best wishes from Germany!

@aspidistra thank you for reminding me that it should be worth all the hassle of getting there! 🙂
