My husband and I are taking our first real trip without kids in 20 years. We are going to Portugal, at the worst time - first week of August - yes, in 3 weeks, and still don't have our agenda set, other than our tickets.
Arrive in Lisbon at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, depart 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, giving us 8.5 days. We are mid-50s, and tend to plan to do more than we actually do. We will be renting a car.
We want to spend some time in Lisbon & visit Sintra. We are not definite about anything else.
I think I would really like to go down to Segre and see southwestern most point love cliffs, ocean. My husband is drawn to Porto.
We could just do the coast but I worry that we will miss seeing something very different if we don't go inland at all. On the other hand, I worry that we will plan on seeing too much and will spend too much time in the car.
Any itinerary recommendations?
