Edmundo and I shared a wonderful 10 days in Portugal with an expat American tour guide, Greg Arvoy before Joining the Turners on the Crystal Harmony to cruise around to Trieste.
I started to write a story about why we went on this trip, and then to share some of the marvellous experiences.
Little prepared was I for stories . . .
of battles . . .
of Portuguese Kings . . .
of the Discoveries . . .
of so many UNESCO World Heritage sites . . .
of apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in Fatima . . .
let alone for visiting these fascinating places of historic interest.
