Re: EHIC/GHIC

we did it just in case we got a "no deal" Brexit and we wanted stay more than 90 days in any 180. It only costs a few euro so seemed like a sensible move. Looks as if the Brexit deal will go through today, but it's still 90 days in any 180 though...it would be nice if Portugal, if not EU, granted a...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 28 DECEMBER 2020- BARRAGEM ARADE

as we will need to reserve places at the cafe.
Be interested to know if you can do this...you always had to queue in the past as they wouldn't take reservations : are they still in the car park, or have they moved back to the market?
