Leixoes, Porto and Guimaraes

We are in Portugal! 

Early this morning we moored in Leixoes, Portougal. But the ship clocks had been set back by one hour, so that meant 1 hour MORE to sleep. A nice start of the day for everyone. Unfortunately, our gangway seemed to" sleep" a little bit longer than usual also, it would not open, and we had to wait for some time before we could leave the ship.

What to do in Leixoes? Being here, we had different options: Some stayed in Leixoes, and took a walk around the harbour, or maybe enjoyed the nice beach. Some went on an excursion to Guimares, one of Portugals most historical cities.

Others went to Porto, either on their own or on a city tour, - combined with a river cruise on the river Douro..

..and a visit to a port wine cellar. Skål!
