                              This was one of my most enjoyable holidays ever! I had never been to Portugal before, but now intend to learn the language in order to return to this most spacious and beautiful part of the world. This area of Portugal is awash with forests, amazing historic monuments and relics that takes the mind back easily to even pre historic times, nearly every little town or village has something worth seeing, marvellous to wake up with the birds singing.
