Portugal Moto 2018 - Back to Lisbon to return the Moto and explore on Foot

Finally got a chance to walk, eat and drink around Lisbon after putting the motorbike out to pasture in Lagoinha (40 km out of Lisbon).  Thanks again to Heli for everything and Tani for lending me the Moto.

Moto Day 23 Aracena to Lisbon, well close (300 km) Started out mid morning from Aracena grabbing some oil and last cheap gas in Spain.  C5R6T3V7.

Portugal ahead

Cortegana Castle



Last looks back to Spain




Portugal!!!

Serpa to Moura - Sweet little side road to catch some lakes.  C7R6T3/5V6.  Narrow roads. 

European RV, tiny.

Good sweeps

Oh nice

Getting some water views near Barragem de Alqueva

Tight!

Barragem de Alqueva, some big ass Dam, Love it!

Dammed water side


Wide open

Dead straight



Viana do Alentejo

Planned and Permitted Graffiti

Viana do Alentejo to Lagoinha was basically straight riding with a few 90 degrees to freak me out. 
C2-9R6T3V5. Lots of small towns which is the price you pay to avoid paying the pricey road tolls.

Blow past that slow poke

Dead straight

with the odd curve

Setubal

The old shovel picker at Lidl

Back to Lagoinha and to return the moto to the spot I found it.

Glad I marked that on my GPS before I left

Open the Castle Gate!

4355 km in 23 days, that's a lot of beer!

All tidied up

Done like a calf roping

Now finally to relax at Casa de Heli and Neale.

Day 24-25, Lisbon for a couple of nights.  When I arrived in August I had only 4 hrs in the Capital of Portugal, so it was necessary to return and have a few nights there.  Check it out...

Thanks Heli!

Heli's Fiat really got me thinking

Walking down to the centre


Marques de Pombal

Where's the action?

Barrio Alto is the party zone...

Boom! People everywhere

Boom! Drug dealers everywhere!

Half a litre of beer for $1.50 CAD

When in Lisbon, go to the Docks...?

Hanging at the Docks club by the water front with some locals I met Barrio Alto.  $15 CAD drinks, isn't Portugal cheaper??  Didn't I just pay $1.50 for a half litre of beer??

R and B all night


Decided to walk the 4-5km back to the Hostel in order to really check out Lisbon in it's quiet time.  Up and Down as Lisbon is full of hills if you didn't know.


Always have to take a photo of this car

Lovely blue sky warming up

Estrela Basilica

Morning Geese

Yeah, it's a park!

Alright boys...you all have your
shit bombing coordinates for the day

Good morning Lisbon

This guy would speed up to walk
behind other guys, they would look
back and he would change sides

open 24 hours my ass, its closed!
