Today felt like a bonus day. I got two days worth of sight-cycling into one. I did make it to Lisbon, and am comfortable in a deluxe hostel in the middle of the pedestrian district.
The morning was beautiful.
The Portuguese coast down around Cintra reminds me of Big Sur.
Sintra was a charming town, but heavily touristed.
But the loop around the Cabo Raso area, the westernmost part of Portugal really delighted me.
It feels like I’m in Southern California here in Cascais.
Warm wishes to all on the eve of the new year.
