We continued our tour and drove to the city of Porto. As an introduction to the city of the port wines, we started in the evening with a bottle of port with our neighbour on the campsite. The next day we took the bus into the citycenter. For us Porto was a real surprise. What a beautiful city with its colorful houses, medieval relics and baroque churches rolling down from the hill like a waterfall into the river. In a winter sport-like cable cabin we drove up to the Ponte de Dom Luis. While crossing this bridge over the 60 meters high top deck, we had a splendid view over Porto, the river Douro and the typical old port boats.

Next morning we again visited the city center of Porto, leaving the dogs at the camper van, howling like wolves. In Morocco they started this howling when the prayers came out of the minaret speakers. They continue this behaviour everytime we leave the camper van.
After a walk through the beautiful city, we embarked on an old port wine boat for a trip along Porto's six bridges.
As Marlies starts standing up now she was leaned against the boats window, pressing her nose against the glass to look out over the water...
In the evening when the kids were sleeping we were outside having a mint tea. As only a warm evening breeze and our little campinglight filled the darkness between the trees we agreed on how fast time goes by...Carpe Diem
