Subject: Portugal
Aloha to all, I'm in the beginning stages of planning our trip to Portugal next fall and would love some advice. We will have about 4 weeks in Portugal and will probably go no further south than Lisbon/Sintra/Evora. We like to move around as little as possible, so 2 nights here and 2 there is not appealing to us. Here's what I've come up with so far: 5 nights in Lisbon (to get over jet lag without having to drive); 5 nights near Ponte de Lima to see Guimaraes, Braga, and Viana do Castelo; 3 nights in/very near Porto; 2 nights near Peso de Regua (okay, there are exceptions to every rule!); 5 nights near Nazare to see Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalha, Tomar, and Coimbra; 3 nights near Evora; and 3 nights in/near Sintra (close to airport). We love B&Bs/apartments and will stay in Solares de Portugal or the equivalent when possible. We may fly into Porto and work our way south if that's possible. Please let me know how this sounds from those of you who know Portugal.

Aloha, Ann
