Article | Rota Vicentina – Fishermen’s Trail

A Trail smelling like the ocean

In the life of a Hiker it comes a time, almost inevitably, a tremendous will to embark on a great adventure. This comes with time, with the security that walked paths bring, and the need to overcome one’s limits. But it comes mainly from the urgency to extend the effect of the trails done before, when it is possible, when you can fit them in the race of life. That effect makes you stronger, balances, renovates, you don’t want to let it go but invariably it ends up fading away.

Article | By train and bike to Elvas

By Derek Emson

Hi. I am Derek Emson, and living in Aveiro at present. I retired eight years ago after being an English language teacher in the Czech Republic. Travelling has long been a passion for me, along with cycling and photography. I hope to inspire someone to discover the kind of freedom that this means of travel can give.

Portuguese trains are bike friendly, and free, which makes it pretty easy to visit more remote places without a car, and possibly a lot cheaper. However, this kind of trip does demand a certain amount of planning, but that’s all part of the adventure.

Art and travel – Forget the museums and the camera

by Jéssica Jacinto @


When the Art defines the travel route

What if art is a reason to travel? The artistic expression alone allows those who create it and receive it to travel, but sometimes the desire to bring it to the real world can outline a travel itinerary. Several artists have turned their travels into paintings or have purposely travelled to capture the colours and textures of a particular place.
