feel like I’ve already climbed ten times that
Breakfast - Dear Breakfast is excellent
Drink - gotta have a Ginghinja. Ginghinja Sem Rival is the original and best
We’ve done two walking tours with Sandemans, both excellent to get a real sense of the history of the place. They’re free and you tip the guide what you think it was worth. Guides are local and very knowledgeable.
Music wise, no recommendations, we’ve spent our time meandering the little streets and numerous bars. It’s extremely hilly but so many places to stop, have a drink and chat with the locals or other tourists.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we are!
Acaso on Ria Do Merca Tudo is very good for food
I’m fortyfuckingeight goddamn it
Thank you , I’ll dig out my list of proposed visitations later, been researching for a good while as we haven’t been away for yonks. Might be of inspiration if you’re still there?

I’m 46 for another week…
50 (very hot right now)

51 Weird how it creeps up on you.
I turned 51 on May 9th. The fire is still burning
May I just say that everyone on this forum is a diamond . I mean that. Really lovely people; kind, gentle , funny with amazing music taste and knowledge
49 is imminent. Half a century next year.
I turned 50 last September.
I milked it as much as a middle aged married dad could - a long weekend in Berlin (also celebrating a 10th wedding anniversary but it all counts!), a sojourn to We Out Here, another weekend away from the kids whilst my wife booked us into the floating hotel in Greenwich, the obligatory party which I resisted against for so long but ended up having a right gas at and a 5.30am finish (kids were kind and let me and the missus have a lie in… sort of).
And now it’s all over… not exactly living the rest of my life like a schnook but a long way to go until I get that level of attention again!
