abril foi assim

Em Abril caminhamos por sitios novos e fizemos muitos km, andamos por trilhos em Henley-on-Thames e Marlow. Andamos disfarcados de turistas em Windsor (ganhei uns bilhetes gratis para o Hop-on Hop-Off). As bicicletas sairam a rua pela primeira vez este ano, fomos ate Dorney Lake. No fim de semana da Pascoa fez calor, fomos ate a praia, Boscombe ao pe de Bournemouth, demos o primeiro mergulho do ano no mar. No fim de semana da Pascoa tambem andamos aos cocktails por Maidenhead, fomos pela primeira vez ao Roux at Skindles e regressamos finalmente ao Boulters. O primeiro festival de comida vegan de Maidenhead foi no ultimos fim de semana do mes e foi um sucesso.

Travel Man: 48 Hours in Porto

Travel Man was in Porto - here are some of the things they did :)

Monkey Riders – scooter hire
A different way of visiting Porto.

Avant Garde Crew Pastry and Cake tour (not vegan)
Throughout the experience you will visit three different famous local bakeries and learn all about their origins and history. You will taste eight different cakes and pastries and understand how these cakes and pastries are made.

5D cinema
Look at Porto is a 5D Cinema that will show you Porto under a unique perspective.
With dynamic motion seats and sensations like water spray, wind and aromas, you will know the city and the region in an exciting, fun and unforgettable 10 minutes film, that will show Porto as no one as ever seen. 

Livraria Lello (book shop)
Book lovers will adore Livraria Lello, one of the most visited bookshops in the world. JK Rowling wrote the first few chapters of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when she lived in Porto, and you can feel the influence of this bookstore, with its intricately carved bookshelves and elaborate winding staircase.

Wax Shop
Rua da Assunção, Porto, Portugal

The only bridge climb in Europe. 65 meters above the river.

Porto's favourite sandwich, Francesinha
I recommend restaurants with the vegan version instead :) 
Francesinhas Al Forno da Baixa - Rua do Almada, Porto
Cultura dos Sabores - Rua de Ceuta, Porto
