Our first Spring Break since 1998 as only three travellers. We missed Jason! At least he got to spend his spring break with his grandparents.
Also our first time visiting Portugal. The air was soft and gentle, delivering enchanting spring fragrances. The food was delicious, including the traditional custard tarts, pastéis de nata (that's the pural; singular is pastel de nata). We walked our legs off touring Lisbon, then enjoyed some real downtime in the Algarve (southern coast). Here are a few photo impressions, mostly taken by my husband.
