Holiday time with mum and dad… July 21, 2014 by portugalholidayguide 2 Comments It has been lovely having my mum and dad here on holiday for the last couple of weeks. We had a day in Coimbra and visited Gois several times We ate Chourico cooked with aguadente , which my mum and dad loved . and tried the lovely cakes – Pastel de natas in one of the many cafes we visited We went to several river beaches We walked through the woods to the next village where we had a well earned drink . We had a lovely BBQ at a friends place and another one at home we enjoyed an evening at a friends birthday party and had a night at a local bar, next to the church . Dad was in shock when the bells rang ! Some days were spent relaxing on the terrace and some evenings too . Mum and dad enjoyed watching village life, and “chatting” with my neighbours They were amazed at my generous neighbour Julia, who brought me a bucket of plums , and 2 dozen eggs and that these ladies of 85 and 83 still work on the land every day ! and all too soon the holiday was over ….
