Re: After Brixit

Every time your passport is read by a scanner (airport or seaport) they know where you are

...indeed, but if you entered the EU through ( say ) France , drove to Portugal, and drove back via Spain and the Santander ferry, I doubt the systems are that joined up.....yet, anyway ??

Re: WALKS ON 13th JUNE ODIAXERE & 17th JUNE PEDREIRAS

good idea to do the walk in reverse but not too sure!
It's surprising how difficult a walk in reverse can sometimes be!

Glad Casa de Vinha can be back on the recommended list, and thanks for keeping the walking flag flying.

See you all in October, hopefully.

Re: After Brixit

I suggest you look at the UK website on Living In Portugal and register with them for updates. It is pretty comprehensive and will get updated once deal/no deal/whatever is eventually sorted.

Re: Extra Walk Monday 3 June 2019 : Pescadores

Wendy reports....We had a lovely reverse walk today hoping for some shade from the eucalyptus on the back side. But not much after the fires. However we had a great walk but after much needed beers we decided that was it until autumn!!
