    Off on my travels again.

    Tired of politics and tired of the current bad weather, so, we're off to Lisbon for a break. Hopefully some sunshine, sightseeing, great Portuguese food, port and wine will lift the spirits. Using up a load of my 'air miles' and flying British Airways from our local airport (Aberdeen) to Heathrow and on to Lisbon. Booked a good hotel near the Marques de Pombal for anyone who knows the city.



    Back late next week. Hopefully have a few pictures for you.
    We're not here for a long time. We're here for a good time

    I have never heard much about Portugal. Anything special about this country?

    Enjoy the trip. What’s the flying time from London to Lisbon?

    I'm envious. Especially of you who live anywhere in the UK and can be anywhere in Europe in a few minutes. Have fun.
    Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven't committed.

    LOL..not exactly a few minutes.. it takes an age on our roads to arrive at an airport.. then arrive a minimum of 2 hours before the gate closes, then the flight time...so in essence what seems like a short flight..3 or 4 hours, can pretty much take up the whole day...
