Porto, Portugal




Our ship is back in Porto again, actually docked across the Douro River on the Gaia side.

We took a morning damp stroll down to Porto Wine Cellar Calem for another learning and tasting experience on port wines upon our arrival yesterday.

Lunch back onboard, then we all loaded up on the busses for a guided city tour of Porto. It is Portugal's second largest city, and is the unofficial capital of northern Portugal. There are many beautiful old buildings, old train station, trees, and history everywhere.

We say goodbye to our fabulous crew here onboard the Douro Spirit after breakfast this morning. Our luggage is being whisked away to our local hotel while we all go off touring once again, arriving at our hotel around 3.

More places to see. It is never ending. There is just too much history around here to try to see it all, but we are making a huge dent in it!

Life is never dull, y'all!
