Having a beer with Rodrigo Koxa, world record holder, largest wave ever surfed at the famous Nazare break in Portugal.
Have a look at this wave.

Time to check out some food.
As well as the selfie king & a world traveller, Hamish certainly is a bon vavant who has the ability to eat huge amounts of food without putting on any weight. 🙂
Fabulous restaurants & delicatessens
One of the many mouth watering venues.
Bar Terraco de Santa Luzia
TripAdvisor rating of #1,798 of 4,476 Restaurants in Lisbon.
Restaurant Row Lisbon
No shortage of places to eat in this fascinating city.
You gotta love the terracotta roof.
Roof, what roof? I don’t see any roof.
OK, now I see them.
One of the interesting things about Lisbon is the lack of high rise buildings.
Here are Hamish’s comments on Lisbon.
“First impression of Lisbon was the Taxi from the airport to my hotel in the city centre. The airport is very close the city – it was about a 15 minute drive, and there was no traffic at midday on a Sunday. First thing you notice is the lack of high rise buildings. There is still some 10-15 story buildings so it’s not a flat city like Vientiane but nothing much taller. Certainly not that you would call “high-rise”.
In the old city there is nothing more than about 6 stories tall – and most of those have rooftop bars.
This is the view from the number one rated rooftop bar at the Hotel Mundial.
Make sure you take time to explore the Alfama district which is an old part of the city set on a steep hill leading up from the riverside with a lot of hidden small shops, restaurants and bars.”
“The old city is quite compact and you can walk to most places, however there are now many Tuk-Tuks available to run your from place to place – as it is quite hilly. Don’t worry – the Tuk-tuks are all electrics so there is none of the noise or small you get form the ones in Bangkok. IT’s a great idea and I think many more cities will start to introduce them – especially where there are narrow streets. They are also a great resource for finding good local sights or places to eat.”
Time to head to Cascais
Cascais is 30km to the west of Lisbon, and is connected to the capital by the “Linha de Cascais” urban railway.
It’s Party time at Arriba by the sea.
However if you are not wearing white you are not invited. 🙂 Check out this great venue HERE.
Talking about parties
This is a fantastic venue for a party, the Adega Regional de Colares.
Some of the happy diners

A very happy gang of entrepreneurs.
Eat drink & be merry in fabulous Portugal.

So much food & such little time.
How about this steak at Gulli Mercato?
Our boy Hamish loves his steak.
Lets not forget the Sangria.
He also likes his booze. 🙂

Sadly I’m not sure which restaurant it is.
Another unknown venue
Not to worry, it’s a great photo anyway. 🙂

Am I enjoying Casais? You bet I am. 🙂
Time to visit Sintra.
Sintra is a delightful Portuguese town that is situated within the hills of the Serra de Sintra.
How about the shirt? 🙂
Here I am searching for my inner hillbilly.
Meet my friend Elvish
His job is to scare away the birds from the vines.
Here is proof we did some work. 🙂
However the truth is we mainly ate good food & drank lots of booze.
Feeling no pain after a long lunch.
We have an excuse, we were celebrating a birthday.
