Journey to Portugal
18-OCT through 10-NOV 2022
Stage 1: We discovered the least scenic drive across America: 80 to 36 to 70, total snoozeville until we hit eastern Ohio. With one exception - Hannibal, MO.
Stages 2 and 3: Had a wonderful 5 days in MD with my family, followed by 4 great nights in Brooklyn staying with great friends, Ken and Amy. Also got to see our niece Gina and nephew Paul. We had an exceptionally awesome foodie meal at Paul's restaurant, between the fab food and catching up conversations, we forgot to take any pictures☹️.
Stage 4: Me and Lola flying into UK on a 15 seat private charter jet with 9 other dogs and 10 other people. Meanwhile, Conrad flew into Paris to get our leased car. We met back up in Calais France, after Con's brother and sister brought me and Lola across the Euro Tunnel.
Stage 5: driving from Calais, south through France and Spain. It was an interesting drive, very pretty coming over the Pyrenees, but we didn't do any real sight-seeing. We finally arrived into Portugal and are so happy to be here. Our first stopping point, Sesimbra is a lovely as we expected and our AirBnB is very nice. All three of us are thrilled that we don't have to move for another month.
