Any Porto in a storm…

Yes, there is a reason for the two week break…

That’s down to having a two week break!

And yes, it was back to Portugal once more – second visit of this year so far.

Plans to do it on a stripped-down load didn’t happen after taking a look at the long term weather forecasts for each of the destinations that we’d planned to visit on this trip.

Take mountain-style waterproofs to one of the warmest countries in Europe at this time of year? You’d better believe it as a Berghaus Gore-tex was packed by Caroline and I took a HyVent jacket by The North Face to combat the elements.

How wet was it – well one of the owners of the Rivoli Cinema Hostel in Porto said it was the first time that he could remember a red weather warning being issued for the city.

Did it rain?

That’s for me to know and you to find out once we’ve unpacked, took a look at the post and done some food shopping!
