      Ferry Boat travel between islands

      Azores Nov 6, 2016 at 9:36 AM

      My sister and I will be traveling to Terceira next August. We were hoping to be able to ferry between the islands. I have been researching the ferry websites (Atlantico); however, not as informative as I would like to ease my concern about catching a ferry between Terceira and Sao Miguel, Filal or Pico.

      Any way to get actual schedule on paper? Better to fly between the islands or is ferry travel reliable?

      Stay the whole week in Funchal, or not?

      Madeira Island Nov 6, 2016 at 12:43 AM

      Hello!
      I will visit Madeira for a week in April and during that week I would like to do several hikes. Is it good to base myself in Funchal and from there make daytrips with local transportation (bus) to places where I can start/end a hike, or should I base myself in another town/village for a few days?

      US Citizens living part time in Portugal

      Portugal Nov 22, 2016 at 10:15 AM

      Hi all,
      Several of us (US citizens) are contemplating a part time residence in Portugal and are considering various cities and options, including Lisbon, Algarve and smaller towns north of Lisbon. If anyone has suggestions as to where to start our research and share experiences, I would appreciate all comments. Any practical advice (access to medical care, climate, etc.) is very welcome.
      Thanks!

    • Walk from algar seco to....

      Lagos Nov 6, 2016 at 2:55 AM

      Hi. I will be in Faro and Portugal for first time since 30.11 till 3.12. I would like to visit Algarve probably on Friday 2nd December. I was thinking to take morning train to Lagoa, and then bus to Carvoeiro. (I think I will be in Carvoeiro before 11am according to buses). I wanted to do daylight walk along the coast from algar seco, through benagil, and praia marinha. Because I don't have idea about distances, how far it is , and could I continue my walk yet further to see another beaches too? Do I have to return to lagoa or can I take return bus/train from yet another town to come back to faro? Maybe anyone of you are going to have a walk that day too?

      Marble hand in the wall of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos

      by Voron Online Now Sep 26, 2009 at 4:41 PM

      Hi, everybody!
      While I visited Mosteiro dos Jeronimos in Belem I saw people (they were tourists from Japan actually) touching the hand in the wall. This hand is a part of a marble wall decoration. And it is located at the entrance hall near the grave of Vasco da Gama. I stepped closer to check this hand. It was polished like thousand of people are touching it every day.
      Does anyone know what is this hand? Why everybody are trying to touch it?
      I didn't see the same decoration on the other wall or anywhere else in this place.
      I tried to find information in internet but didn't find any.
