Praia de Mira

We continued our journey on the small, coastal roads after our lunch in Óbidos and continued north. The road was abanded and full of potholes, we were happy to be driving a fourwheel-driven car considering the state of the road, but Mr. found it rather amusing that he kept expecting kangaroos as the landscape reminded him so much of Australia.


The beaches felt so empty compared to those recently visited in San Sebastián and Cascais.



We set up camp in Praia de Mira, which turned out to be slightly more happening than we had expected. It was supposed to be an old fishing village, but seemed to have boomed just a couple of years ago given the number of newly built houses.

We were just happy to finally be able to dry our wet clothes from after the storm and for Mr. to finally get into the water for some more surfing. The storm had created more swell, but unfortunately it had also moved the banks so it was a bit 'messy'.
You can tell it was I who took those photos, and Mr. will hate that I posted those of him surfing!

  5. Jag skulle vilja testa surfing, om så bara en gång. Surfar du? Det verkar galet svårt.

    1. Nja, har prövat body boarding och surfing i Mexico, men jag tror jag är lite för rädd för stora vågor. Men jag tror att om man börjar i mindre vågor i Europa så är det nog lättare, men helst ska man nog ha vuxit upp med den sporten
