“Setubal for lunch. There are a bunch of little seafood places along the harbor, Porto de Pesca, all displaying fresh seafood. You can even select the fish you want cooked. Best grilled Sardines and garlic shrimp at Tasca da Fatinha. Inexpensive, chill atmosphere”.
“Bar da Praia was great for a drink, boiled head on shrimp and a view. Then to our main destination, Lagos”.
“MotoXplorers is a great BMW motorcycle rental and tour company about 15 mins from Lisbon city center. We got a BMW F800GS and headed south across the Tagus river by way of the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge, stoping at the Christ the King Sanctuary and observation deck with views back North”.
