Already 20 years since they landed, and still no sign of fantastic artifacts... Didn't they come to save the world from the human infection???

Out and about, and on a walkabout

Well, this is not Strasbourg...I needed a break, after this dreary winter. A beach break. A portuguese beach break. So, here I am in Olhao, Algarve, southern Portugal, just above Africa, yet another of my old homes. Seville is nearby as well. More about my portuguese adventures tomorrow, when I go (re)discover the Ria Formosa

Take it easy...

A bird's eye view on the Eiffel bridge

Hi folks, I'm in Porto, Portugal, home of the port wine!
Gustave Eiffel not only built a tower, but he was a bridge builder as well.  The Don Luis the 1st bridge, here in Porto.
I also decided to christen the seagull... He didn't fly away when I came with my camera, he seemed to want to be on the picture. So, birdie, I name you Gustave. Live long and prosper.

Il Galeone Neptune

So, I travelled a bit... Does this ship look familiar? You might have seen it in the 1985 Roman Polanski movie "Pirates". A reproduction from a spanish galleon, you can now visit it in the port of Genova, Italy. 6 euros.
