Paris

We had one night and two days in Paris on our way home .... as beautiful as ever ...


Weather was perfect and again we enjoyed wandering and revisiting some favourite places ...


Sacre Couer was stunning in the beautiful sunshine ...


We wandered through the produce markets by the Seine ...


So colourful and gorgeous produce ...



Cheeses were amazing and flowers stunning ...



Also wandered the artists square and had mussels for lunch before boarding our night flight for Tokyo ...

Barcelona

We had a great few days in Barcelona seeing the sights ....


Our hotel had a great rooftop pool with amazing views over the city ...


We were amazed by the Gaudi architecture ....




The Sagrada Familia was amazing ...


Beautiful food, lovely old doorways and great streets to explore ....



We even went to the beach ... although very crowded ...




And ran into John and Julie who are friends from home .... quite by chance in a crowded square !!

Lagos Farewell

We had to say goodbye to Lagos today ... after a gorgeous 6 days of relaxation, sunshine and swimming ...


We had to walk along the cliff top and down to our beach ... good exercise ...


Our hotel was beautiful ....


We finally enjoyed the birthday champagne and when we asked for them to chill it they bought us more beautiful cake ...


The coastline around Lagos is spectacular .... David had camped here 40 years ago and always said he would bring me back here ...


We enjoyed wandering around the old town too ...


Food has been amazing ...


That would be my salad and his pizza ...


Last night we enjoyed dinner down at the beach restaurant and captured the sunset on the way home ....


In Faro now and heading to Barcelona early in the morning ...

Lagos, Portugal

We are now in Lagos, Portugal enjoying a well earned relax at the beach .... after 300km walking I think my feet deserve a rest ... and this is beautiful ....


It was my birthday the day we arrived and I was very spoiled with beautiful flowers, a cake and French champagne on arrival ... all organised by David ...



The weather has been perfect and we loved our little boat trip through the grottos of Lagos ...





We had a great time in our little boat going in and out of all the beautiful grottos ! 


Then a walk down the steps to Camilo Beach which was beautiful ...


We are enjoying great seafood and spectacular salads ...




And still managing lots of walking around the headlands and down to the gorgeous beaches ...


And some pretty good sunsets too ...

Santiago

We finally walked the last couple of days into Santiago de Compastella ... through the rain ....





The Cathedral is being worked on ... hence all the scaffolding ...


A hot shower was required and then a delicious lunch to celebrate ...



We had a nice day relaxing with a foot massage and a wander around the old town ....




The Cathedral is spectacular ...



And now we are heading to a beach to relax ....
