Our 33-day visit to Europe was drawing to a close. We had one more place to see, the Fortress of Sagres (pronounced Sargresh), on the SW tip of the Algarve, Portugal.
After exploring the eastern section of the Algarve yesterday, we drove westwards today.
Today we travelled in an easterly direction to Villa Real de San António and then, across into Spain to the city of Huelva, about 3okms into Spain. (see map at this link)
We started our first day in the Algarve with breakfast at Noèlia’s restaurant and then walked around the town and bay of Cabanas. From there we drove to Tavira.
Today was a day of travel, travel and more travel via taxi, train, aeroplane and car as we travelled from Antwerp in Belgium to Cabanas in the The Algarve, south Portugal.
We had spent the morning walking around Antwerp and then, after lunch on the ship, Trevor and I decided to go back to visit the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom).
Our penultimate stop was Maastricht, a town I only heard of about 30 years ago when a Professor of Microbiology came to the University of Natal Medical School. It, too, was a lovely place to learn about.
Our next visit was to the city of Nijmegen, the oldest city in The Netherlands and is home to one of the largest universities in the country.
