... Or so the preColumbus world used to think!
That´s right, I´ve seen what all Europeans used to believe was the end of the world- the coast of Portugal!
I enjoyed a fabulous weekend visiting the coastal cities of Faro and Lagos Portugal last weekend with my program. It was a great weekend full of sunshine, playas, swimming, and lots of fun! Hope you enjoy some pictures of the weekend...
Welcome to Portugal!
or Boas-Vindas in Portugues ;)
Yeah didn´t make much sense to me either...
Spent most of the day Saturday on a small cruise boat sailing the coast.
Portugal´s coast is so amazing because it´s filled with tons of caves and rock cliffs.
We had a blast exploring the insides of the caves on a little speed boat.
So apparently Portugal coffee´s REALLY strong, so being
the Eisenmann that I am I had to try it...
Goodness gracious, you could get the same effect just
by chewing on a bunch of coffee beans!!
Needless to say, the espresso size was all I needed. ;)
One of our first stops while driving to Lagos was Faro,
Portugal where we toured a small chapel made out of bones.
The chapel was meant to show deep respect for the dead instead of simply burying them.
¡Me gusta la playa!
Spent lots of time on the beach!
Sunday afternoon, we stopped by a beautiful vista before heading back to Granada.
This is at the southern most part of Europe.
And... the closest spot to los Estados Unidos in all of Europe.
I think I can see America on the horizon!!
Definitely a fabulous weekend! :)
