Portugal/Spain River Cruises

Hello Bill,

living in Portugal i truly cannot recommend river cruises here, especially if you like good food.... Daytrips on the Douro (from Porto to Pinhao) although are quite nice and you can try great wines. last month we visited the producer Quinta do Tedo and recommend it for trying wine and port.

Baby-friendly restaurants in Portugal

Portuguese are so baby-friendly, you pratically can go everywhere, they all have baby-seats and nobody bothers about crying children, they rather help and try to comfort...

Childhood memories of Portugal, rekindled?

forget to tell that i was not very happy with the food at solmar, only with the ambience, it is like a travel back in time. for me, marisqueira ramiro in avenida almirante reis would be a better option in lisbon. Or the great "mercado do peixe" in monsanto, that's definitly my favourite marisqueira.
