I'll never make a good blogger! I just forget to keep up to date. I've had the four nights in Coimbra I mentioned earlier and it was great. I'll try to remember to put up a bit about it - but don't hold your breath!
I must have spent the equivalent of about two days in the city - and ideally at least another half was needed.
As for the area around I had three tirps out and I should have liked a lot more.
