Last week we got the boat from Spain to Portugal. We didn’t even know you could GET a boat from Spain to Portugal. But you can.

You cross the Miño estuary from Galicia. It’s a tiny ferry big enough for 4 cars or a couple of campervans. It costs 6 euros.

Just before the ferry terminal on the Spanish side we visited Baione and A Guardia. Baione is where the Pinta ship docked after returning from the Americas in 1493 and it has a lovely waterfront castle.

Just down the coast at Santa Tecla there are the remains of an amazing Celtic settlement which was in its heyday between 600BC and 200BC. The whole of Galicia has a very Celtic feel to it and we’ve seen a lot of bagpipes. The Celtic settlement is perched at the top of a hill at the river mouth and there are great views of Spain and Portugal.

We then drove down to Porto Airport (very fancy and friendly and designed by same person as Dubai airport). Jen got a flight to Hamburg to work in Rostock for a week.

The rest of the gang got tickets for a match at Porto FC. And have been doing washing and schoolwork and stuff.

Now we are back together and ready to head south in Portugal.
